This was right by the Food Store 7 on Benning Rd. That store and it's adjoining parking lot are nothing but trouble. People hang out by the front door and in the empty parking lot from sun up to well past sun down. It's straight up blight and really drags down the surrounding area plus, now people are getting shot right there too.

Black and Yellow hoodies...

Should be distinctive.

Probably a white police officer did it. That's who is always shooting these young black men right?

It's sad, a young man who had a whole life to contribute is dead. one or two other
men will likely spend a long time in jail...

Families are affected, neighbors hurt...
