I know all parties and know Keegan and Jassica very well and Chip just a little. What happend is a father has been taken from his daughter. Self defense is not being shot in the back.
Look at the full situation really, Keegan ran into the house when the car pulled up.. he ran into to get a gun. He could have chosen then to call the cops immediatly had he felt threatened. Instead he premediated going in and getting a gun. He is also a much larger guy, Chip had no weapon and was shot in the back and found halfway on the road and in the yard which says he was fleeing therefor he could not have been that threatened and it was not self defense. I know the kind of people Keegan hangs out with and what they do. He made the choice to take someones life because it was what he wanted. Jassica cared about chip deeply and although they had there arguments just as most couples or people who share a child do she loved him. Her heart is broken not only for her but for her daughter who will never know her father. All of you speaking about things you dont know need to sit back and chill. I happened to know all parties. We dont need people running their mouths spreading rumors, we need healing for the friends and families of all parties!

I know Keegan & Jessica very well. I was shocked about the whole situation. I hope Keegan pays for what he has done. I am so sorry that Chip's family has to go through this terrible ordeal. I did not know Chip, but I did cry for what was done to him. My prayers go out to his family. P.S. I wonder what is taking so long for the investigation to find Keegan guilty of murder.

Has anyone heard anything new? I was told that there was a trial already, and the jury found Keegan innocent. I hope this is not really true. Otherwise, I would like to know who paid them off?

I just spoke to one of yellow belly's ex-girlfriends and she said that the charges were dropped. Is that true?

the truth is that he was given a NO BILL - which means he is dismissed and can not be linked to this ever again, given by the grand jury. It is dismissed due to a lack of evidence and his self defense plea. Very sad for all!!!!!
lol at all of you

Stop being so naive and acting like one of you really "knows" the truth. NO ONE REALLY KNOWS someone- we all have secrets and demons. Were any of you there? All of you are blogging about a situation that only the people that WERE there and involved REALLY know what happened. And bad mouthing one side and making the other side out to be a saint is typical in any situation like this. But the truth is both families have been effected and hurt by this tragic event. My heart goes out to all parties involved.

In our society, a verbal confrontation does not usually end up with one person shot in the back. My contention is that Keegan Armke was not awakened suddenly from a deep sleep at 2:30 am. He was in his front yard with people. When Chipper and Jassica arrived, Keegan did not go into his home, lock the door and dial 911 and wait for the police to arrive.(It only took them 4 minutes to arrive after he killed Chipper.) He chose to go into his home, get his gun and shoot Chipper in the back as he was leaving. Keegan was not screened for drug use that night. It would have perhaps made more sense if he was under the influence while making such a poor decision. What would the outcome of been if he had called 911 and waited 4 minutes in his locked home?

Interesting situation since Keegan is back in the game of selling coke. Just wanted to put it out for everyone to read it. Not that NBPD will do anything about it. Hopefully this dirt bag will eventually pay for what he has done

I heard Keegan had a restraining order on Chip... what was he doing at his house? And, if Jassica was sleeping with and getting coke from Keegan, it was her choice to put both Chip and her child in danger. Obviously Chip knew and stayed with her anyway. I think it's a double fault.

The da told the grand jury to no bill it. They are too bust trying to get a new courthouse and doing turkey trots to worry about a murder case.
