    LEOs ask victim to come forward and admit to self defense shooting

    http://hamptonroads.com/2010/08/shoo...ified?cid=ltst

    Investigators who interviewed witnesses believe Griffin may have been involved in a robbery, according to Thurston. A gun found in his possession was stolen in Hampton.

    Police said that they have reliable information that the shooter in this case may have been the intended victim in the robbery. However, police can not make any assumptions until a claim of self-defense is made.

    Investigators are asking the person involved call Detective Wayne Verdaasdonk at (757) 928-4219.
    Either the shooter has a reason to remain anonymous or he's playing with fire to make the LEOs find him.

    Agreed.

    IIRC nearly 40% of homicides in America go unsolved, per year.
    Dollars to donuts this will be another one.

    Want to bet the shooter was carrying legally??

    What odds do you want?

    WHAT A TRAGEDY; another choirboy murdered!!!!!

    I don't know; Newport News, is that Virginia? Not sure how they stand on the 2nd amend/self defense but if they are a liberal @ state and I thought there were no witnesses, not sure if I would come forward either. Perhaps the intended victim did not have a CCW but felt the need to protect themselves, coming forward even with the protection of self defense for the shooting might bring other legal problems. OR, it was another gang banger and a prohibited person to start with and this was gang on gang.

    Dead in a parking lot, 4 A.M., stolen gun in possession? This kid was just out getting his life turned around. Yep, it got turned around.

    VA is a fairly moderate state, but +1 to the gang retaliation worries. NN has a fairly sizeable gang presence from what I've heard. So much as to one of the groups actually tried to burn down one of the police stations 2 years ago.
