Hearsay is just gossip, rarely factual. Shawn was a great guy who fought for this country in both Iraq and Afganistan, that is fact. Shawn was a mentor and role model for a large number of "at risk" kids, fact. Lets leave the gossip where it belongs... It the trash with the scumbags that shot him while he was protecting what he worked so hard for!

Sounds to me like they should have kept Officer Killion on. They need all the help they can get to fight crime in this ghetto of a city period!!!!!!!!

It's unimaginable having to tell your children your father is dead. I don't know how old the children are, but, if they are old enough to read the papers or hear what happened they will NEVER forget he was gunned down for protecting his store. How very very sad! God be with the whole family. Please if anyone has any information please come forward because as someone wrote in Shawn's family it definitely could be you or someone in YOUR family next.

The police said they were hoping to review store cameras from area businesses to see if they can see the suspects fleeing
