    Meh, let them kill each other. Most are drug traffickers anyhow.

    I just bet this killer will attend the funeral. Police need to be there and observe.

    Yet another loaded gun in the wrong hands. When will these hard-headed young people learn before its too late or its can be them being killed. Pray for our young people!
    My condolences to the family in their loss.

    If they keep this kind of activity up surely the crime rate will have to drop, eventually.
