A Missouri teenager was senselessly killed after posting to Facebook about how happy he was to see his 17th birthday.

Armond Latimore, of St. Louis, made the now chilling status update at 12:00 p.m. Saturday:

“Thru all the bullshit I den been thru I’m just glad I can say I made it to see 17 #MYDAY #FREEGANG.”

An hour later, Latimore took one fatal bullet to the head while picking up food from the Bing Lau Chop Suey restaurant in the 3100 block of North Grand Blvd., police said. The restaurant is just a short walk from Coleman Street, where Latimore lived with his mother and siblings.

The teen, a sophomore at Vashon High School, was rushed to a nearby hospital but pronounced dead upon arrival, police said.
