It was my brother-in-law's, fiance's uncle. We didn't know the man, but went to support the family.
He and his wife had gone out Thursday night to get some take-out. They placed the order and then went back out to their car to wait. A few minutes later the husband went back in to get his food, went back out to his car and was approached by a "poor disadvantaged youth."
Apparently the BG asked for money and a struggle ensued. The victim was shot once in the chest and fell back into the car. The scum then shot the victim in the head. When the victim was falling back into the car he was able to grab a chain off of the BG. After the shooting the BG jumped into a waiting car that had two other "poor disadvantaged youth" in it. The police linked the chain to a local gang.
The entire time this happened the victim's wife was in the car.
He was only 44.
This morning I heard there was another robbery at the same location last night. Thankfully no one was physically injured.
It really pisses me off these scumbags believe they have right to take property and life from others.
While the shooting and robbery happened on the other side of town, the "bad side," it has only reinforced that fact that you still carry wherever you go and be prepared.
Funeral is a 3:00p today, please say a prayer for the widow and her 21-year-old daughter.
