This was senseless and I hope that animal that did it is tried as an adult.

This cowardly boy not only shot Mone, but followed him when he tried to get away and shot him four more times before returning to his party and bragging about it. All over an argument? What kind of animals are we allowing to roam our streets. Put him in prison for the rest of his miserable life and then go after the parents for not taking some type of responsibility for their teen age son. Most of all, crack down hard on all of the gang activity.

i dont think you even a clue of what this family (of the shooter) has had to go through in the past. they have tried to help him out, to straighten out his life for the better, they've sent him to a specialized boot camp and theraputic school. as far as i've heard the shooting occured cuz soloman had been running his mouth about shooting at him first, apperently all he was was talk n no show,

Look here "SOMEONE"...There is a DEAD teenager...just because he ran his mouth does NOT mean the guy should have SHOT him.....are you SERIOUS right now... i mean, there is rachael, she just lost her brother, and you are sitting here basically justifying that it was okay for him to have gottten shot!!!! Rachael, I am so sorry for you and your family's loss. I knew Mone, I went to school with him, and he was such a nice guy.

WTF? "someone"...you must be some sort of jackass. Name calling gets you shot? Whats the matter with you? Mommy didn't love you enough, or did Dad run away? All of you caught up in the "i'm on the red team, no i'm on the blue team." thing are a bunch of stupid a$$holes. Give us all a break. Grow the F_-k up, get a job and become a useful member of society.

To "someone" how dare you come on here to start drama. If you want to stand by what you say then next time don't be scared to show your name. My family and I don't need your rude comments. Even though my brother may have ran his mouth, at his age everyone does. No one deserves to die and no one has the right to take a life. You have no idea how much my family is hurting right now. If I wasn't a child of God, I swear... I'll pray for you because I know you need Jesus in your life. Don't ever speak down on my baby brother. Ever.

Rachel, I am very sorry for your loss, we lose too many young men around here, not enough is done about guns and violence here.

Some young guy waived a gun at me a couple years back in a convince store parking lot right on middlefield. I couldn't believe it, all I was doing was driving from the parking lot to the road. I was so scared.

People around here don't do enough, they do not work enough with the police, and the police around here do not do ANYTHING to protect people's identities when they call to report ANYTHING. They demand your name and number, and they run their big cop mouths off to everybody in the neighborhood, so nobody reports ANYTHING to them. If it sound like I am blaming the police, I AM, THEY helped create the situation here in unincorporated RWC.

The parents don't teach these kids anything of value and then they release them on the public. They're just human garbage and I know what to do with garbage.

Actually, I live in the area in question, and it's not all that different from other places. The biggest problem to overcome are the ones caused by people such as yourself, who are filled with lies and hate, and who only have the balls to say such things over the internet.

You sir are a cowardly piece of shit.

without immigration reform we can only hope to expect more and more such mindless, territorial, macho-murder. Beyond that it is sad and a major downer that some teens have so little regard for human life while they are trying to find their place amongst the rest of humanity.

This is what is wrong with some of the new generation. We do not protect them by teaching them respect and on how to stay safe. we blame others for our ignorance or lack of support. we call others animals yet expect them to respect us when we call them out of their names at parties and make threats. I am truly sorry about your loss yet placing an angry teen @ a party where their is alcohol and possible drugs is not smart.
god bless and all your families. we will all suffer as parents and siblings as long as we do not comply with the mans word upstairs, in reagrds to help and love eachother. Respect.

i feel bad for soloman and his family, may he rest in peace, but people have to look at the alleged suspect's family as well; they are victims too. he had a son, a girlfriend, parents and siblings, cousins and many people that love him. you dont see this side and wat we have to go through everyday. threats, destroying property? like they are to blame. there is pain on both sides, so dont act like you know what its like to grow up now a days. its crazy how people act like they know whats good. his parents have nothing to do with it or do his girlfriend and his son. its very sad how people are so hateful, its even sadder how the sheriffs office handled the situation in all. pathetic in fact. to them we are all numbers, THEY DONT CARE WHO DIES OR WHO LIVES, do u see pervention in these neighborhoods? no you dont. simple as that. good day
