And no one, not the school counselor or the principal, will help you. For Minnesotan Katy Lyle, that scenario was all too real.

In a city that, like Los Angeles, is so often numbed by the exploits of ruthless gang murderers, the saga of Robert Sandifer was sadly familiar--except for his tender age. The object of a three-day police hunt, Robert was the suspect in the shooting death of one teen-ager and the wounding of two others. He was found early Thursday, a murder victim himself. His body lay face down under a viaduct, shot in the back of the head. Robert Sandifer was 11 years old.
