He was 34 & had TEN children? I wish I could feel confident that all these children have the same mother, but...I don't. I do hope, however, that the mother(s) of these children are able to support these children--financially, mentally, spiritually, etc. & if they're not, for the sake of the children, let their family & friends know so they can assist as needed so that the children are not needlessly lacking in whatever support they need.

the fact that he had ten kids just shows.... was he supporting all ten or was he looking for 11 and 12 to be made.

Who cares how many children he had that was his business.That is not why he was killed. I feel sorry for the children.Just think their SS that they will get will probably be about 20.00 month and no father.How sad. I feel bad for his mom as well.

There's a reason people get shot in the head on Conkey Ave. at 3am, and it's not because they're on their way to work to earn an honest living or they're packing up the kids in their station wagon to go to church. Good riddance, one less mouth for the American tax payer to feed. Too bad we still have to feed his 10 illegitimate children though.

Please explain what he was doing at 3:00am so we can determine how not to get shot.

Maybe you can be the one to start teaching the YOUTH of the city that there is no reason to be out at 3am, unless it is to earn a honest living and I don't mean in the pharmecutical business. Its all we hear is people saying "We need to stop this" and that but is anything done. I hope that someone is there to teach his ten kids how to grow up in this world

I do feel sorry for the family but I don't feel sorry for a family if they did't teach there young on how to BECOME adults.

<quoted text>Show a little grattitude, this was a human being. But everyone wants to mourn the death over a silly bear that could have killed someone. This was a father, a son, and a brother. I don't condone him being out at 3am, but stop with the negative comments. What if that was your son?
My son wouldn't be pimping around Conkey Ave. at 3am. This guy was no saint. 10 kids, are you serious? Did he pay child support to any of them? I doubt it. You and I are paying to feed and clothe his illegitimate children which is always the case within the Rochester City limits. A criminal got shot in the head, who cares?

Great 10 more kids we have to pay for (yeah, like he was paying for them while he was alive). Too bad he didn't get shot before the 10 kids.

You obviously have no heart. We don't know what kind of person he was. This isn't about him screwing every woman and making 10 kids. We don't know the motive, but we do know a human has been killed. I didn't know the guy, or the kind of lifestyle he lived. But if he lead a bad lifestyle, then he deserved to suffer the consequences. And you don't know what kind of father he was, so stop prejuding like you know everything and your crap don't stank!

Why was he out at 3 a.m.? Should he have been at home making sure his 10 children were snug in their beds having sweet dreams?

There is a serious epidemic of orphan African American Children, due to the homicide rates across metro cities in America. The #1 killer to Black males, Homicide. The #1 killer to Black females, Aids.

FOLKS, WHAT ARE WE TO OFFER TO THESE orphan CHILDREN AS A NATION?

Kellie, your first reaction, "he's 34 with 10 kids", I really don't care if he is 24 and with 50 children and 40 of them have different mothers.

That's what humans do. Multiply. You sound shocked.

To the family of this young man: my deepest sympathy. To the children of the deceased. It will get better with time. Look toward the hills from which cometh your help!!!!!!!!!

We still love you all! and YOU NOR YOUR FATHER SHOULD HAVE BEEN WRONGED IN THIS MANNER.

Maybe he was getting off work. I know I can't assume, but that's what you people are doing too.
