I live in Chicago but the step-father that died was my uncle and I'm pissed off right now. I just lost my uncle over a dumb 17 year old tryna be a gangster. I hope he pay in prison for this. My uncle didn't deserve none of this.

It is a crying shame. This guy pulled the trigger without one thought that this man had feelings and was a human being and living, breathing person. He was somebodies husband,father, friend, uncle, cousin etc. No regard for the people that loved him. This kid should get the same respect he gave his step father. Doesn't matter if he is black, white, latin or whatever. HE KILLED SOME ONE.

Do we know if it was in self-defense? Was the step father abusing the kid? Was the kid on drugs? Was there an arguement that precipitated the event?

I think we need a bit more information.

Jane I have to agree with you on this one. Something obviously set this kid off to do something this violent. Lets get some more information before we judge.

Same crime, same young thug faces, same mug shots with head turned to the side like rappers. Young thugs getting more time in prison than their age.

I agree to a point but not just this case but several others,where do kids get the idea a gun and death will solve anything..I believe video games and maybe something else, I don't know what, has taken the sting out of death..Way to many teen suicides and prison terms..

My uncle did nothing to the boy. The boy was hanging with the wrong crowd and doing drugs. My uncle did nothing but try to help him but he always got into it with my uncle. My uncle is not an abusive person.

My uncle did nuthin wrong. He never abused him or nuthin. His wife kids were all doin somethin bad. They was doin drugs and in gangs and stuff. My uncle tried to tell him to leave that stuff alone. he ended up killin my uncle over dumb stuff. There's better ways in solving stuff but killin my uncle isn't one of em. I hope he gets a lot of time in jail.

According to article, man was laying down when shot....doesn't look like self defense to me.

Drugs? I did drugs for over 10 yrs. and never killed anyone.

And even if there was an argument, that didn't give this asshat the right to kill the man.

String him up!

Unfortunately, crimes like this will keep occurring because young people today are not taught to resolve issues with words, but with weapons.

I dont think "Ricky" is real. Just someone who came to start something. You are in Chicago... how old are you? And its odd that you find time to call out people on 11Alive message boards instead of being with your family over the lose of your "uncle". But that's my opinion. Bye Ricky.

"Ricky" nowhere in my post did I accuse your "Uncle" of anything, in fact I didn't accuse anyone. I stated that we should wait and see what happens in the investigation. To Tiffany and Greg, my condolences to the family, hopefully evrything will work itself out.

TO THE PPL THAT ARE POSTING THINGS ABOUT SOMETHING THEY DO NOT KNOW ABOUT, YOU DO NOT KNOW THE THINGS JAMAL GOES THROUGH IN HIS OWN HOUSEHOLD. JAMAL IS A VERY GOOD KID AND DOESNT JUST GOES AROUND SHOOTING PPL THERE HAD TO BE A MOTIVE. NOW IM NOT SAYING HE WAS RIGHT IN THE DECISION HE MADE BUT ITS ONLY SO MUCH ONE PERSON CAN TAKE AND FOR PPL THAT DONT KNOW HIM GOING AROUND JUDGING HIM MAKES IT NO BETTER. ANIMOSITY TAKES UGLY TURNS AS YOU CAN SEE WE ALL KNOW THAT. JAMAL WE ALL &#9829; YOU AND YOU WILL BE OKAY.

JAMAL WAS ONE OF THE MOST SWEETEST PEOPLE I HAVE EVER MET. I WOULD HAVE NEVER PICTURED HIM DOING SOMETHING LIKE THIS! I AM NOT TAKIN SIDES BUT I WILL SAY THAT A PERSON CAN ONLY TAKE SO MUCH. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT SOMEONE IS GOING THROUGH IF YOU ARENT IN THAT HOUSEHOLD. IT WAS A DEEPER REASON THAN JAMAL JUST NOT LIKING HIS STEPFATHER! AND UNTIL YOU TAKE A WALK THROUGH HIS SHOES YOU WONT KNOW!
