The murder of Larry King refers to the February 12, 2008, shooting death of Lawrence "Larry" Fobes King (January 13, 1993 – February 13, 2008), a 15-year-old gay student at E.O. Green Junior High School in Oxnard, California, United States. He was shot twice by a fellow student, 14-year-old Brandon McInerney, and kept on life support until he died two days later.

Newsweek described the shooting as "the most prominent gay-bias crime since the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard", bringing attention to issues of gun violence as well as gender expression and sexual identity of teenagers.
