(AP) -- A 12-year-old boy described as a "nice little fellow" was so angry about being spanked for riding a motorcycle without permission that he shot and killed his mother, wounded his father, then kiUed himself, authorities say. Jimmie Mathis armed himself with a pair of shotguns, then confided to a neighbor boy that he was "going to shoot his parents for spanking him," said Clark County Sheriff Frank Kanekoa after the shootings Tuesday evening. Police said Wednesday that Jimmie, scheduled to be named crosswalk "patrolman of the year" at his elementary school, used a 12-gauge shotgun to kill his mother, Darlene Mathis, 36, and himself and wound his father, James H. Mathis, 32, at their home in Hazel Dell north of Vancouver.' ' ; The boy "seemed like a nice little fellow," said an adult neighbors-He was friendly. He would always wave. It's unbelievable." A neighbor boy said he was in the Mathis house Tuesday evening, saw Jimmie with two shotguns and a machete and heard him say "he was going to shoot his parents for spanking him," according to a sheriff's report. " the Mathis parents i drove up on their motorcycles, the neighbor left the Mathis . residence through the rear door and as he went home, he heard what sounded like gunshots," the report said. The father, wounded in the back, told authorities in a brief interview that the attacker was his son. Mathis was reported in good condition Wednesday'at Bess Kaiser Hospital in Portland, Ore., with superficial head and chest wounds. Jimmie was in the sixth grade at Hazel Dell Elementary, where both students and teachers described him as well-liked. Two schoolmates told a reporter that Jimmie expected to be disciplined and said he wasn't going to take it quietly. "He wasn't going to stop (shooting) until he killed everyone," said a schoolmate. Clark County Chief Civil Deputy Robert Songer said Mrs. Mathis was found dead, face-up, on the front porch of the family home. The wounded father fled to a neighboring home and called police. Deputies who surrounded the house and evacuated surrounding homes at 7 p.m., said they heard a single shot from the house shortly after arriving. The boy's body was found in the living room, a 12-gauge shotgun clenched in his fist. A 20-gauge shotgun leaned against a table nearby, and ammunition was scattered on the kitchen floor, officers said. Neighbor children had varying views of the boy. "He was weird. He was always doing crazy things," said Tina Forgie, 12. "You know, he'd Jump off the (playground) bars." "He was funny. He joked a lot. He was a very nice person," said Jeff Stewart, a friend.
