  1. “How the man sustained the gunshot wound is unclear at this time.”
    No doubt one of those rogue guns again, because everyone knows some thug didn’t point and pull the trigger just because …

  2. “How the man sustained the gunshot wound is unclear at this time.”

    The man received it from a criminal thug who used a firearm to fire a bullet into him. That is how he sustained a gunshot wound. Idiots.

  3. I’ll put money on the suspect being a multiple repeat offender released back onto our streets by left leaning judges.

  4. Punks with guns the best part of them ran down there moms legs !!! Sorry for the victim and his family …

  5. Probably was a repeat offender, that seems to be true with everyone of these cases.

    Baynet needs to include the names of every single involved judge in these cases.

    Baynet only posts judges names once in a while. No more. Post the name of the judge every single time.

    Killers who had prior convictions? Post the name of every single involved judge.

  6. Condolences to the family. To whomever did this your better turn yourself in asap. The streets are talking, and you will be caught soon. Very senseless wannabe gangsters. That man did not bother no one hard working and he probably would’ve given you the money instead of robbing him or gave your a damn job. This man lost his son last year, sister and dad. Please if anyone know anything please call the tip line do not let these dudes stay out there.

  7. I guarantee the perps are repeat offenders. The court commissioners and judges have a lot of blood on their hands. It’s “catch and release”. These guys get pulled over with stolen guns and do 60 days and are out to maim or murder someone.
