No suspect named yet in slaying of man, 20

There are 30 comments on the A liberal dose story from Feb 18, 2008, titled No suspect named yet in slaying of man, 20. In it, A liberal dose reports that:

Investigators spent Sunday interviewing witnesses in the fatal shooting of a 20-year-old Hurst man, but police said it was too soon to name a suspect.

'We're following up a bunch of leads, but we don't have anything to release right now,' Hurst police Sgt. Craig Teague said late Sunday.

Reed Ballard was shot at about 9:15 p.m. Friday in the 500 block of Harrison Lane, which is next to Hurst Junior High School, Teague said. Ballard was sitting in a maroon Chevy with several people when he was shot, he said. It was not known whether Ballard was the target, he said. Read more

THAT is what my son was told very soon after this happened, most likely, a made up story from some of the people involved, sorry.

Too bad that when you are with someone that does that, then you are responsible too. That's the law. They were all there for a robery, and unfortunately it went wrong. All 7 of them should be held responsible. When will you kids ever learn that you can't get away with terrorizing people? Give 'em the death penalty! Especially Miguel.

And the same goes for if they were white they should all equally be charged. Based on the facts there were three black kids involed. Get the facts you idiot and understand the facts.
I think you are the idiot because anyone who read the paper saw pics of the guys and they weren't black. It doesn't matter the race, it was still a tragedy that someone had to lose their life over some little punks wanting to act like thugs.

My son was one of his friends, according to him, Reed got out of his vehicle in a parking lot because he had hit a curb at a 7-11 close by. As he was checking his wheel, three black men approached him and demanded his money, he refused and was shot in the neck. I believe that the three were in a vehicle also. The people with him, drove him to a medical facility, but they were to late.
and your son is a damn liar. how you like that s*it?
I miss u so much Reed
