MIAMI (AP) - Relatives and friends of two 16-year-old sweethearts were trying on Saturday to gauge the depth of the teenagers' love -- a love apparently so strong they decided to die rather than separate for the summer. Police said Ray Thompson shot his girl friend, Sharon Gabriel, five times Friday and then turned the gun on himself. Both died. The girl was being sent to Italy for the summer to stay with her father, stationed there with the armed services, police said. Thompson was to start summer school on Monday. "I'd rather be dead than in Italy," Sharon's sister quoted the girl as saying recently. Relatives said the trip was designed, in part, to separate the pair. They had dated steadily for three years. Police said the couple discussed the situation Friday outside a house where Sharon was baby-sitting. Thompson then went inside, came out with a pistol and shot Sharon in the arm, shoulder, chest and head. He shot himself once in the head. "They asked to get married about a year ago, but they were too young ..." Thompson's aunt said. "They loved each other. We knew he was upset, but we never thought..." Neighbors and schoolmates accustomed to seeing the couple together were stunned by the shootings. "They were such sweet little children, childhood sweethearts," said one neighbor. "They were very possessive of each other. The parents are in a state of shock." Service Tuesday For Huntington Man HUNTINGTON--Funeral service will be Tuesday for a 59-year-old Huntington man who was beaten to death Friday night in his home. Huntington city police said Lester Johnson was found beaten and unconscious on his living room floor Friday night. He was dead on arrival at St. Marys Hospital a short time later. Hospital officials said the cause of death was a heart attack. Huntington police said Michael Dawson, who lives in the same building as Johnson, was apparently knocked unconscious when he was struck in the head with a bottle on Johnson's front porch. An argument and fight then apparently ensued between Johnson and a third man, Ernie Dawson, Michael Dawson's brother. The Dawson brothers were charged with felonious assault and voluntary manslaughter in Johnson's death. The two were released from custody Saturday after posting $10,000 bond each. Johnson is survived by his wife, Virginia Daily Johnson; daughters, Sandra K. Johnson of Parkersburg, Christy Johnson at home; Michael Dale and Rodney Allen, both at home; brothers, Ernest Johnson of Huntington and Merlin Johnson of Hamlin. Service will be 2 p.m. Tuesday in McGhee Funeral Home, West Hamlin, with the Rev. Farris Burton officiating. Burial will be in Shelton Cemetery in West Hamlin. Friends may call from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday at the funeral home. T\vo State Men Drown Friday The Associated Press Two West Virginia men drowned Friday in separate accidents, authorities said.
