Another senseless killing, a young life taken too soon. I knew the person who was killed. May he rest in peace. He was a sweet young man. Many thought of him as a big teddy bear. He was loved by those who knew him and will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

My dearest friend. You will be missed. I still can't believe this.
