According to reports from BDT & WVVA Derek Tabor was shot during an argument outside a residence on 4th st., and there are no suspects or motive. Someone correct me if I am wrong but wouldn't the suspect be the person he was arguing with and the motive be whatever they were arguing about?

There is bound to be someone that knows what was going on...someone was arguing-whatever that was probably led to the shooting DUH totally bad reporting as well.
Both the paper and the idiot WVVA seem to massacre anything they report on.That is a BAD part of town and I am sure many have their suspicions as to what went on and why...someone from Montcalm in that area of town---Be interesting to see what actually happened there(or what they say)happened there.

obviously it is the police departments fault because they arent releasing information. Maybe they do have suspects and plenty of information but until they have an excellent case they dont want to take a chance on some pos killer getting by with murder on a technicality like in the past. I trust our small town PD will find the killer - and more likely than not already has. There are way too many people out there dying to tell what happened. Sit back and watch what happens. And fourth street is straight trash.

Sounds like a RACE/HATE CRIME to me!! if it were the other way around, that's damn sure what they'd be calling it! DT was a loser, didnt he rob some guy few weeks ago in Princeton in the middle of the night?

It was over drugs cause he was under investigation anyway and there is a lot of pills back that way cause I've been to fourth street. Its sad what happened but that's what happens when you go to the Hood for drugs knowing them Pusey's carry guns. The cops hpave info I'm sure. They can't be that stupid. I think they are holding a lot back until they get the Guy. Why show your poker hand before all the bettings done?

Has the thought ever occured to u ppl that maybe the police know exactly who killed this boy . just gonna keep everything quiet so they can get who done it before they leave the area . The so called "FRIENDS" who took him to the police station had to be there when the person shot him . I feel sorry for his Mother , reguardless of what he was or wasn't her child is dead . I PRAY that the person or people who done this 2 this kid spends the rest of their coward life behind bars . GOD Be with his family and those small children he had .
