Legal adult age

Elizabeth • Mommy of one beautiful girl, and twin boys (:
What age is it considered to be a legal adult? I was told it was 18. This isn't because I'm stupid and have no idea. It's the fact that the two tragedies that have happened, news have said 'teenagers.' I thought at 18, they were considered legal adults. So I'm really not understanding some of these headlines. Very misleading headlines in my opinion. THIS IS NOT ABOUT RACE, OR WHO IS RIGHT, OR WRONG. THIS IS ONLY ABOUT AGE. If you want to have that debate, please have it on a different topic.
