It was an accident.He didn't mean for anything to happen.All that it was supposed to do is to break up a fight between his roommate and 2 other guys that was beating his roommate up.

He had an armed gun in his hand, and in my opinion he had intentions of shooting somebody. It may not have been mercedes he had intended for, but she is dead now. He killed my friend and I hate him.

He had a gun at this point it no longer matters what the intentions were. He shot and killed a innocent freind, sister, aunt, daughter. Her sister will never be the same, and everyday this inoccent girl is going to have to remeber hold her sister watching her slowly die. It no longer matters what the intentions were, its just sad that someone would bust a gun out and shoot it in any direction. Just imagine if it was your family and The other person called it an accident. THIS IS SOOO SAD.

regardless if he didnt intend for this to of happend,that's not the point he caused someone to lose their life behind his careless thinking action!!!!!!!!who care's if someone was getting beat up that's why we pay taxes to have police to do the job that this person took on his self to do and look at what he done, why didnt you jump in and help with your legal hand's that's what god gave them to you for is to put them to work, not saying to use them for fighting, to b a coward and use some thing illegal!just dont make since,!!!i feel you took this young girl's life at 21yr's u should be charged with that many year's to life!!!!!!!!!may god b with this family that's like my family!!!at this very hard time because of some nobody!!!!!!!!amen!!!!

who gave this moron a right to carry a gun in the first place. It is evident from other prior problems involving the illegal selling of drugs etc, that the people of 513 S. Marshall should never have had guns to begin with.

The Constitution Gives him the right to Bear Arms ... And Living in Burlington , Iowa where the cops are currupt , the Southeast Iowa Narcotics Task Force Is also Currupt, People Do as they please in this town ... There's a lot more to worry about then some unfortunate accident that this young man has to live with the rest of his life with. She was his friend also people. You can't even walk down the street in this town without wondering if the car rolling up on you is going to produce people that jump out and rob you. And it doesn't matter if it's day or night. If you are a woman or man. Or even children . I have been a resident of Burlington for a long long time. And my heart goes out to both families. But it is a terrible accident that could of happened to anyone who has a gun and is trying to protect their interest. Who cares about his prior arrests , I mean seriously?? It was a tragic accident, and thats what happens when you reside in a shit hole town, where the cops use drug dealers and addicts to do their jobs for them, and the cops only care about their own , and do you people realize that Burlington Iowa is a town that has a Population of around 30 thousand people, but at any given time there are prob 6 cops on duty. For 30 thousand people... And It is sad when you dont even know if the cop your dealing with is high himself or he or she just doesn't frankly give a fuck about you or your situation. If you ask me, Burlington Iowa needs to be investigated for curruption in the police department, the Narcotics department, and the humanitarian department.

Kayla and Travis, stay strong for Jesse, ya dig? Everyone who really knows Jesse knows that it was an accident. Jesse is not a coldblooded murderer and he did not shoot Mercedes on purpose. Try and stay off these comment sites cause this is how some people get their kicks. If they see they are getting a rise out of you they get excited.

COME ON PEOPLE!
He was defending his home and the people in it!
Who's to says who's finger was actually on the trigger?
The OWNER of the house comes walking out with a gun to defend his roommate, So what now you cant even have a gun in your house? he is OF AGE right?
Any normal person would just leave. But no what do these two IDIOTS do they grab the gun and start a struggle, THEN the girl gets SHOT!

wow you sound just as ghetto and dangerous as your brother is. sad that this is how the world turned out but i understand its not your fault its how you were raised you are a product of your environment, and if your brother was so kind and innocent why did he have a gun and why was it loaded???? doesnt make sence does it maybe you should go back to school and get an education or learn how to speak english without cursing every 3 words so you wont end up like your brother.

Every normal person knows that accidents do happen.And that was an ACCIDENT.You know even god forgives and believes there are accidents to.Maybe all of us could learn someting from all this and that is not everyone is perfect and they deserve a second chance.If we judge everyone on their mistakes they made in their life there wouldn't be no good people left in this world.
