I heard what I thought were firecrackers or something. Im not familiar with the sound of gunshots so I had no idea what was happening. I hope someone comes forward cause I know some people around the area have information.

I wonder if the pit bull incident from earlier in the night is related to this somehow.

Anyone know what I mean?

R.I.P. Jean...you were a good man. I'm sorry to hear that this how your life ended up. You deserved better than that. You were doing better for yourself and you didn't deserve this... You're in a better place now. I'll see you again one day...

His fate was decided long before this day. How sad for anyone to end up down for the count and in a gutter.

There seems to be alot of speculation as to what happened,yet people are already condemning this man. Maybe he didn't do anything wrong. It looks like A-town is turning into a cesspool like Reading.

Yes the area has a lot of crime, but not as much as other cities. Sad to hear about this one. We weren't close but he was always kind when we did bump into one another. dude was going somewhere. And all of these rude comments are just completely ridiculous. I hope all of you ignorant people don't have any children or loved ones of your own. Karma.
RIP Jean

Rest in Peace Jean. Words can't express how sorrowful I feel that this has happened to you. We had just sat down and gathered closure on our past issues a few months ago when I was in town. You were a great person, full of love and life...and you will always have a special place in my heart. My condolences go out to your family, Black, Digga, Julius and everyone else you held close to your heart.

Love always,

Sweets
