As the family of an Australian baseball player gunned down in Oklahoma mourns his death, police said today that the athlete was targeted by three teenagers who simply “wanted to see someone die.”

The suspects followed Chris Lane, 22, as he jogged alongside a road in Duncan, Okla., Friday afternoon, shot him in the back and left him to die on the side of the road, said Duncan police Chief Danny Ford.

“They were bored and just wanted to see somebody die,” Ford told ABCNews.com.

Lane, who was on a baseball scholarship at East Central University in Ada, Okla., and was in town visiting his girlfriend, died shortly after he arrived at the hospital, Ford said.
