The police DO have a motive to the shooting at the Williamsburg Apartments but either they're not telling the press or they've told them but it makes for better news by saying something else. The shooter was drunk and looking for his girlfriend AT THE WRONG APARTMENT. Williams Graves died unnecessarily because someone had the wrong apartment!!!! The police know this and the journalists should tell this story accurately instead of trying to make it sound like 2 men were arguing over a woman and one got shot. It was nothing like that and you should be more responsible than to try to tarnish Mr. Graves name.

Did the police or journalists shoot William?

If not, why are you blaming them?

You should be blaming the person that shot William, not blaming the people investigating or reporting it.

The cops want to get the killer off the street so that he or she doesn't kill again.

The journalists are just reporting it so we have something to read. If they hadn't reported it, none of us would be writing in this blog!

i'm sorry to bother you but these people who are so angry are letting the anger take over them and i understand youe statement but they should'nt lie about the case and what happened william graves was a very close friend of mine we went to school for 9 years together, i know that what there saying is very rude and harsh but the journalist is changing the story and its not good don't you remember what happened to all those journalist that were going to iraq to get information, wrong information at that, they died
so my friend are stating somthing that makes perfect sense to me if they were to clean the language up a little, you cannot investigate something when you have no idea what your looking for. and to answer your question no bob the police nor the journalist did not shoot my friend will. and we are not blaming them for the death we're blaming them for the wrong information there sending out to the world, changing the story of what really happened to my friend william graves.

thank you sir.

Right On! Either he was "sick" most of the time, or his nickname denotes a contrary or abusive disposition that apparently has been "dealt with"!!!! Even charles manson, and all others like him, have some people that love/admire/IT!

Okay just to answer the news watcher and doc...among youth the term ill refers to something that is great or awesome which is what this individual was....he touched many people's lives and was a great friend to all of us as well as a great boyfriend to his loving future wife Stephanie...he had many plans for the future and unfortunately his life was ended shortly...what really happened that night is still in question...i honestly don't believe any of the bogus stories that people are giving about a random individual that shot one gun shot at a random apartment...i grew up in metropolitan cities my whole life and currently i am studying law...any good attorney and investigator would know that there is more to this story and than people are letting on...sounds like a set up to me!...eventually we will find out the truth and then my lovely best friend William can finally rest in peace.

he's only been arrested for driving issues...such as tickets that were unpaid and driving with a suspended license...he didnt use drugs or sell them...wasn't much of a drinker either...it was only on a social occasion and only a couple of drinks...its just funny how people can actually sit here a refer negatively about someone that was murdered...the man died, so why are people judging him...his life was taken by lowlifes when he wasn't a lowlife...there is no reports stating he was involved in any illegal actions...people should be less judgmental and think more about the killer rather than the victim!

First of all; you're freind is either in Heaven or Hell! 50 / 50 chance "he's resting in peace". That would be, at the point of, "assumming room temperature"! In other words, "as the tree falls, so shall it lie". Nothing that happens on this earth, in the land of the living, will change his present situation! He's where he's at! That's IT! As far as "youth" go, Their "ILL" Learn- ed! They used to teach grammer and composition in school! Oh! I forgot! The democrats run the "pubic scrools" now! "ill", means: sick, or "in a foul mood". PERIOD! AND! Who cares where you "grew up"???. And, you need to study ENGLISH, before you attempt to study LAW!

We DO,DO, DO! Think about the killer! YOU THINK about it! SH*T ATTRACTS SH*T! WE! Out here in the normal world, want ALL these punks that kill people,"PUT-DOWN", And, NO! That don't mean, "put in jail, so the taxpayer can take care of it! WE want them DEAD! BUT! That aside, Doe's not negate the fact, that, Somethin' wasn't just right wid' yo' "p's" "activities", OR, maybe he would be alive today! By the way, ms./ or mr. wanna-be lawyer, What does his few/some/a-couple, of drinks, HAVE to do with thw fact that Somebody killed him, "grtaveyard-dead",DR T=Dead Right There?

The truth is my son, who you seem to wish to concentrate on for some unkown reason was a wonderful loving young man, he was the best son a mother could ask for, the best brother, the best uncle, the best friend. For those of you who knew him you have no question of who he was, but to those who have nothing better to do than speculate and assume, find another forum to ease your boardum. How dare you judge my son, look in the mirror and ask for Gods forgiveness. You have mine.

Mam, I feel for your loss. I didn't judge your son,God Has already. When he left this world. If there wasn't something going on, then how does your perfect son, just, wind up dead? And, NO! I will not ask GOD to forgive me for stating my opinion. It is backed up by the numerous black-on-black murders in this city! Why don't you pray about that? Ask God why blacks are killing each other like it's FREE!
