I am not 100% sure but most likely sounds like something the "bloods" of South Jamaica Houses or Baisley Houses would do. So cowardly to shoot someone in the back. So cowardly to carry a gun that most likely isint suppossed to be in the hands of a killer. I hope they find this person.

My cousin didn't deserve to get shot in the back because people don't know how to.handle things in a civilized manner. I hope the police find my cousin's killer and I hope they rot in jail.
