      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Jacob R. Lee, 19, and Lorena Mocko, 16, were found shot to death at around 1 a.m. Saturday, Lincoln County authorities said.

Lee shot himself and the bullet passed through him and fatally struck Mocko, Lincoln County Sheriff Daryl Anderson said Tuesday.

"It was just a total freak thing," said Jeri Mitchell, a friend of Mocko's mother.

Mocko, who lived across the border Canadian border in Fernie, British Columbia, was in town visiting her father and a boyfriend when she was shot, Mitchell said.
