Investigators have said they do not believe the shooting was gang-related but may be drug-related.

you cannot trust anyone when buying or selling drugs.

the buyer/seller could be the law

the buyer or seller could decide to rip you off

the buyer or seller could decide to just kill you.

drug dealers are a very untrustworthy bunch.

This was no drug deal. We've been through trial, sentencing of the murderer and accessory to murder. My brother was not selling nor purchasing drugs. This was a senseless act of violence. My brother had no weapon. He was told by the shooter to meet him there to discuss a disagreement they had been having about some automotive work my brother had done for him, and there was anamosity between the two. My brother had no idea (I'm sure. Or he would not have gone there) that the idiot shooter had a gun and planned to murder him. It was in a high traffic, busy, well lit area at approximately 8pm. It really bothers me that there are so many narrow minded individuals out there who believe anything they read (no experience with the press, I guess). When something like that happens, officers report to the press the leads they are following, the reasons they would think somebody would kill somebody else, usually drugs, gangs, road rage, etc. The police were even shocked to find that the reason for this incident was as petty as a disagreement over wheels and tires, they expected more, and investigated for more, but that was it. I've learned you can't always believe what you read and or see in the press, things are often twisted to make it more exciting to sell more papers. Before you pass judgement (which you have no right to do) follow the story, hear all the facts from the case, and then come to your conclusions.
