I don't know about that one but there was a shooting in the 1200 block of Alger.

I missed that one, that would be near Brooklyn and Alger I think. There is an Alger in Wyoming but I don't know if there is a 1200 block.

That sounds about right. The exact address is 1207 and that puts it near the west end of Woodlawn cemetary.

I was just listening to this story on the radio.

"Police interviewed several of the children, and do not believe the shooting was accidental." So does that mean one of the kids intended to kill the man? My gosh the kids where ages 9 to 13 and three of them belonged to the victim. What the heck could have prompted that?

So sad.

I suspected that because the kid on the phone told the cops he put his fathers two 9mm on the night stand when the cops were on the way.

I don't live too far from there either. Sounds like drugs to me. That shooting down off Eastern near 36th was drug related also, but in that one the robber got shot and the victim got arrested for drugs.

They just said on the radio that the 13 year old in custody is the son of the victim.

The only thing that could possibly excuse this is self defense.

This is strange my computer won't keep me logged in. Weird.

Anyways. The only reason I said that is with the off chance that there was some type of on going abuse going on or something like that. Still doesn't excuse murder.

The victim is a convicted felon, with a record that includes possession of a Taser in 2003, carrying a concealed weapon in 1993 and auto theft, as a juvenile, in 1991.

let me see if I have this correct...we have a "mother" dating a convicted felon who keeps guns in the home in which the children have access to??? charge the bitch as an accessory

Court records show Stokes has children with at least three women, including his fiancee. They have a 4-year-old and 9-year-old together. He also has a 10-year-old with another woman, and an 11-year-old and 12-year-old with another woman, according to petitions for paternity and child support.

Or abuse, looks like the deceased had some troubles.

the boy's attorney says that the kid fired the gun accidentally...Authorities say otherwise, and aren't releasing the "motive"...it'll be interesting to hear what all plays out...the boy's mother and the victim have a long history with two kids together

I couldnt believe they showed the 13 year old on Wood t-v tonight.
They usually dont do that when a juvenile is involved.

definitely not a case of "who's your daddy?," but, "who's your mommy?"
