    Hmm,Interesting. I doubt a 21yr old female could have done that by herself,but I'll wait for the motive and more details to come out.

      A crime in this case a murder is solved when an accused person is arrested , charged and convicted for that crime. My innard biases tells me that this person will be released before being charged. Good work by the COPS though at least they made a start. To the family of the deceased keep hoping for justice.

    if she is an accomplice so be it. As most of the criminal activities women are used. A series of death in a particular island women were involved where they were uses to call victims on their phones and told to meet at a particular spot and the perpetrators carry out their acts.Unfortunately one or two died in the act as they maybe in a compromise position with victim and they too are blast with bullets. Sometimes they are dead and the targetted gets away. People we just have to be vigilant and careful in life and walk with light spirit you never who where when and why

    Under pressure the police just rush and got the wrong person she may have got him to the location but certainly not the killer

    • Wendy (03/03/2018, 11:01) Like (45) Dislike (1) Reply
      The article does not say that she is the killer.
      And if she got him there as you've said, lured him, she is involved in his murder which is not really different and with the right lawyer she might as well have pulled the trigger.
      My guess is that she will be singing to the authorities .

      How you know is the wrong person they got? They had to follow some kind of lead to at least pick her up. If she got him there knowing what was gonna happen to him she is just as guilty as the shooter. Don't swear for a soul unless you were there! You would be surprised what people would do even if it's something you don't expect!

    Dark truth: A lot of woman are a driving force in most of those men doing bad things. The woman ratchet lifestyle have to be maintained. Lots of woman are no different from a lot of the men we keep talking about. Just like how it have a (MALE) Male Anointing Leadership Everywhere) it needs a (Young lady) version as well. Let’s not play a blind eye that teenagers (female) and mature woman ain’t part of our community problems.

    Do you remember or have you forgotten that many times the police brings in people for questioning and released them? They may just want her DNA , fingerprints, or see if she breaks under pressure. The article didn't say she was charged. It says "arrested on suspicion of murder" you need to read. Suspicion is not a charge. And all she had to do is say nothing. Then what? Even if charged, court is the proving ground, not the media.

The trajectory of the bullets will show exactly where the bullets came from! Which hand was used! Where exactly the shooter was! Come on!! Dont they watch crime scene investigations! Poor child! No or limited education! Who set it up!!!! Start talking don't go down alone! You would be in jail and they would be out there free as a bird. May not even come visit!!!!!!

I hope the same question put to this young lady will be directed at the canteen lady and the task force officer...Or another thing ask the corrupt cops to either bring in there family members or resign from duty so justice can take it's course or else this will never stop
