    It is indeed ridiculous to hear this disturbing news so early in the New Year. This young man is needs some counselling on anger management. Many of our young men are going down the wrong path of life that will only lead them long terms of imprisonment. I want to appeal to those who want to use guns to solve their problems to think of the consequence before they decide to do so,

      Then most likely the gun wasn't purchased legally, he better pray they don't find no dry bones attached to the gun cause he will not be feeling the heat from the bullet lodged in his abdomen alone.

    That is what little boys experience when they step into the TUGALISHIOUS GAME. You better get down on your knees and hope the GAT is not hot or connected to any MURKS. More than likely the gun was bought illegal. I could bet if the gun lead back to someone, the person is going to holler the OFFICER, I found the gun or it is not mine defense.

    Let’s see if he is going to get bail as well. Because last week the senior magistrate brother got signed bail when he was found with a firearm at the same bar a week earlier to that event.
