Texas shooting suspect says he planned crime with the devil
Kody Lott says he was upset he didn't have a girlfriend and planned the shooting of two teen girls with the devil. Kody LottWichita Falls Police via Twitter  WICHITA FALLS, Texas -- A man accused of shooting two teen girls as they walked home from school, killing one, told police that he planned the crime with the help of the devil, reports say. The Wichita Falls Times Record News obtained the arrest warrant affidavits for Kody Lott, 20, who has been charged with murder and aggravated assault in connection with last week's shooting. (The affidavits can be seen below. Mobile users can see them here.) In the affidavit, police say Lott confessed to shooting Lauren Landavazo and Makayla Smith, both 13, on Sept. 2. The two girls were walking home from school when Lott reportedly pulled up in his car and fired at least 15 shots from a .22-caliber rifle. Lauren was hit 14 times and was pronounced dead after being taken to the hospital. Makayla was wounded but survived.  Lott was arrested a day later after police received a report of a person acting suspiciously and were given the license-plate number from Lott's vehicle. Officers searched Lott's vehicle and found a spent casing from a .22-caliber rifle. Police say Lott thought Lauren was attractive but knew she had a boyfriend, and Lott was angry he didn't have a girlfriend. He told police he went to his father's apartment and retrieved a .22-caliber rifle and waited for Lauren and Makayla to walk by. Lott told police he was upset that the killing had been described in the media as "senseless," say he had planned the shooting while speaking with the devil. Lott is being held in jail on a $4 million bond.
