We called him Dre in Rochester. He will be sadly missed. I think who ever killed him is a coward. To shot a man with a child and leave the child to fend for it's self is truely a coward. I hope they catch who ever did this and gives him or her the same treatment. This child will be scared for life. I send my condolences to his family.

First, off I would like to say sorry to the family because no one is a real winner here. But, you live by the sword you die by the sword.
This young man was a co-conspiritor in the death of my husband BAY BAY (Curtis Bradley) in Rochester NY on May 6, 1997. He shot my husband in the head at close range while he was kneeling on the floor needing help after a gunshot wound to his chest inflicted by his co_conspiritor. My child had to grow up with another man being his father. My son no doubt has issues today. Many days I cried and asked GOD WHY!! He nearly severaged our lives. However, no one is above the laws of God, I certainly do feel for his family because I suffered the same pain of WHY and How could you Dre. Well, I am ok now and by and by with the help of GOd they will be too. My prayers goes out to this family.

Sorry for your loss also. If he killed your husband as you say why was he not sent to jail? Why was your husband shot? Was it a random shooting or did he know your husband? The Dre I knew would not go out and kill an innocent man. As you say Live by the sword die by the sword. No one is a winner here another child with out a father and one who had to witness his father being shot.

This post is in response to Justice and Mercy. Even if this young man did kill your husband(although seeing as he was a free man I find that doubtful) to add salt to the wound of his family and friend at their time of need makes you almost as cold as the person who killed him, by having little respect for human life. Evil for evil is never the answer, it adds fuel to the fire.

To someone with a heart and A Friend,
It was black on black crime. They were all living fast lives. I had talked to them on several occassions concerning their fast livestyles and the foolishness of ruining other families through the trafficing of drugs. However, you are entitled to your opinion. But, I am an insider and I know the real truth. The real truth will always out live a lie. Furthermore, I have prayed for this family that their faith will fail them not. Lastly, God is pleased with the truth!

When you say they were all living fast lives do you mean your husband was to? I'm truley sorry for your loss also. I did know Dre I am not just a random post. So please do not think I am. I knew knew Dre when he lived in Rochester. He was aroung my family alot, attended our family reunions. He watched out for my grandaughter who in this mess lost her uncle whom was known as Denis Andre Williams. I knew him as a caring person who would do anything for anyone. If he had it he would give it. I still do not think he deserved to die like he did with a baby in his arms. You see Dre had not one child but others also.

To each person who makes a comment at this time all we need first and foremost is for the black on black crime to stop and right now Dre family needs prayer and for people to surround them with love. As stated above, Dre was a good man who loved his children and family and he would not hurt anyone, so enough about what you assume happened....but may you find peace within

Now that everybody has risen above the hate, how about dropping a tip and having the person who did the shooting face some justice?

To each and all of the people commenting on Dre'. Yes he had evil ways as we all do. Yes he was a compassionate man as well. Dre' was Dre' and there was nothing ny of could do to change Dre" Love for who he was, but now is not the time for any type of negativity. We need to find a way to save our BLACK MEN!!!

To a Friend,
My husband was involved in it as well and they were all friends. They just happened to have a misunderstanding amongst themselves and he came up dead.

I am sorry this happened to your husband. I am still confused about how you know Dre was involved. Why did he not go to jail if he did as you say he did? No one is a winner here.

To a friend,
You must remember that this is a circle of friends we were all hurt. And word circulates amongst those that are intertwined. Plus the coroner told us about the other bullet to his head. Guess what we all knew who the bullet belonged to. Remember this is a group of people of whom are hanging together, wheeling and dealing together. Not only that, we were all married in one another families with children involved. Of course the police would have been glad to take all to jail involved. But to tell one would place anybody who told at the scene of the crime. Plus they were already being targetedfor drug trafficing. Well, noone in the house could call the police. Why? Because the drugs had to be removed first. Dre came in to remove them and in the process while my husband was kneeling he shot him in the back of the head, took the drugs and then took his cousin to the hospital.

How do you know all of this? Why was your hsband kneeling. Were you there? I am confused. I do not know why Dre would kil your husband if they were all friends. I am not calling you a liar or anything. I just find it hard because I knew another Dre who was caring and looked out for people.
