Sounds like another "Suicide by cops" situation. So many people that want to kill themslves end up having it done for them when they put police officers in a situation where they have no choice.

that's the life of a gang member..here today..gone tomorrow..too bad his family has to suffer for the very poor decisions he made....but why was he in a gang? lack of parental involvment, Lack of guidance, lack of respect and lack of supervision. Parents had blinders on. "oh no my boy was a good boy..." until he wasn't a good boy anymore. Gangs are a disease and parents who get involved and take back control are the cure. My condolences to the family the gang has destroyed.
