Hoffman's grandmother, Sandra Layne, was charged Monday with open murder in her grandson's death. Police say she shot him eight times during a reported argument inside her condo on Friday. Police say the teen was on the phone with a 911 operator pleading for help when he screamed he had been shot again.

Police also say Layne, 74, answered the door holding a Glock semiautomatic handgun and told officers she had just murdered her grandson.
