Samoans truly are some of the kindest group of folks I have met. I hope they get this coward although he will burn in hell forever anyway.

I am very sorry for your family's loss. Why would someone do this???? I am speechless and cannot comprehend this senseless killing!! I hope the idiot who did this is caught. The southbay is a dump, a killing ground, the laws need to be more strict!! God rest his soul......

There obviously was no motive. Just another idiot coward with a gun trying to be tough. My sincerest condolences go out to the family for their loss.

My cousins spent a year in Samoa. Gentle people they found. Here something happens for the worse. They said if someone kills they have to live with the deceased's family for life. That probably was decades ago, but something seems to snap here.

How does this sound gang related? Have you ever been in a gang or something? Can't you type something positive in for people that are killed after coming from a church service?

Lo matou Tamä e,`o i le lagi,
ia paia lou suafa.
Ia oo mai lou malo.
Ia faia lou finagalo i le lalolagi,
e pei ona faia i le lagi.
Ia e foai mai ia te i matou i le aso nei
a matou mea e 'ai e tatau ma le aso.
Ia e faamagalo ia te i matou i a matou agasala,
e pei o i matou foi ona matou faamagaloina atu
i e ua agaleaga mai ia te i matou.
Aua foi e te ta'ita'iina i matou i le tofotofoga;
a ia e laveai ia i matou ai le leaga.
Auä e ou le malo,
ma le mana, atoa ma le viiga,
E faavavau lava,
Amene.

So what's the deal with the Tongan Crip? I mean he looks like a gangster, but who can really tell. But seriously people, is it really a mystery?
I got that impression looking at his picture also. Why do people who go around telling people that they are not in gangs, dress up as a gang banger? Gang bangers are among the dumbest people on the face of the earth....so dressing up as one might get you killed because the dumb gang banger would make a mistake.....

I am sorry for the families loss, but in his next life, I would dress up like an aerospace worker or something, not a criminal gang member.

Profiling huh...there's nothing about how this guy looks in this picture that makes him look like a "gangster". "Is it really a mystery?"...say what you really mean...better yet, keep it to yourself. People talk'in about things they don't know don't need to be heard when others are trying to deal with the loss of a loved one.
Our prayers go out for the Eteuati family!

The good news is that the property values in Wilmingtom continue to drop. As a result, it's becoming a VERY affordable place to raise a family!! Ahem.

Your such a racist idiot!!! That pic they showed here on DB was an earlier pic of him.I'm not in a gang but sometimes I dress like that and to tell you the truth I work for the Gov't for short let me just say,Do not judge a book by its cover.Eteuati just came from church and I know that Samoan dress respectively when it comes to the LORD.

You MORON stop with your idiotic dumb F'ing comments you leave when you don't even know what has happened..

God Bless the Eteuati family..
