Three people died; these people were equal in value and had families. Singling out the eight-year-old simply puts more emphasis on his importance and that family's loss, which I don't think is fair to the other two who died and their families.
If you look at the world in relative terms, it's going to seem unfair. But I don't feel that emphasizing the dead kid diminishes the other families' losses in anyway - it's to stress how impartial and damning violence can be. Are they usually supposed to know who the perpetrators were by now? It's been almost 8 hours.
