Philadelphia Man Shot To Death Over $300 Headphones
This Black Friday violence is friggin ridiculous!
According to NBC Philadelphia:
The sounds of children playing on a Lebanon Avenue sidewalk Saturday afternoon didn’t curb a shooter. An armed man opened fire on Christian Massey, 21, in a nearby alley. The armed man first demanded Massey’s Dr. Dre Beats headphones. Massey did not comply and tried to run, witnesses say. The suspect shot five rounds, striking and killing Massey. The headphones lay near Massey’s lifeless body. He had purchased them for about $300 on Black Friday.
“To me, he was my child,” said Eula Hodge, his grandmother. “Why did they have to shoot him. They didn’t get what they shot him for so he was shot for nothing.” His goal was to play basketball and buy a house for himself and his sisters. Philadelphia Police have no leads and are seeking the public’s help with identifying a suspect.
And according to his grandmother, Chris Massey was a great kid who made good grades despite being in and out of foster homes during his childhood. SMH.
