    @Kiaya…..very well put sweetheart.
    To preach about what time, where he should have been, where were his parents, is just another way to see how unattached our community has become. A young man was killed regardless of what time & part of the city he was in. So rather then try to find a solution to this problem the community would rather dictate where & why. This could have been your son or family member. Our kids are dying in all areas & hours; and their not all gang members. There are good kids out there too. Springfield needs to find a solution. Our kids should be safe at 3am and/or 3pm. The hour of the day or night isn’t what killed this young man. So stop focussing on the where, how, and when & find the murderer who is still walking the streets before another child dies, you or mine!

    Why not move out of the city? Many of the SPD employees have done so in the past five years. Cops see this citys underbelly every day. Take their lead, get your family out while they are still breathing.

    Prayers to the family and friends of this boy. Lets hope the guilty are found so they may have justice and sum kind of closure. We need longer jail times for violent offenders!

    So sad that someone lost their life. Yes there are a lot of questions surrounding the circumstance of the shooting but that doesn’t give anyone the right to jump to conclusions about the situation. What really gets me is a lot of people commenting on this story don’t know how to spell, use full sentences or proper English.

  • FuKdRepUBLicAnZ

    Wudevvvvvvva. I knew him. i dnt care wud u gotta say bout spellinggggggggggggggggg

  • ledgen

    So why was there shells leading up to his body? Its true this is sad to of happend but I would love to know if anyone cares that kids live in a house that was being shoot at. Yea I feel bad for his familey and friends but if you live by the sword you die by the sword. Sad kids now don’t realize the value of life. I my be wrong about him shooting too just going by what was seen while police had it all marked out

  • my3boys

    I think everyone needs to really stop with all of your rude comments to echother! Its all hurtful, alot of racist comments which bothers me, this has nothing to do with anything more than a innocent 19 ye old who’s life was taken so heartless so enough I have 3boys and if I was the parents I’d feel horrified reading how heartless you most sound may God forgive all of you!!!
