James Brown’s Son-in-Law Murdered

Darren Lumar has been killed according to a report by Livesteez:

The son-in-law of the late soul singer James Brown was shot to death Wednesday (Nov. 5) night in the garage of his Buckhead home. Relatives of Darren “Chip” Lumar told the news station they believe the killing was a hit. Investigators said the shooter was waiting for Lumar.

“When he drove up to park his car in the garage, he was confronted. An altercation of some sort took place. That’s when the victim was shot multiple times,” said Atlanta police Officer Eric Schwartz.

The neighborhood where Lumar lived is a gated community. “I think it was somebody that knew him,” Schwartz said.

Witnesses said after the gunman shot Lumar, it appeared the perpetrator was side-stepping away, as if he was looking to see if anyone was watching him. The witnesses said he then rounded a corner, possibly jumping a fence, and got into a car that was waiting for him, reports CBS46.com.

This story reeks of foul play, and hopefully they bring closure to this matter very quickly so the family can start to grieve appropriately. It just seems like this family is plagued with excess drama and misfortune. SMH

    Just because it’s a gated community don’t mean its safer than any other neighborhood. I live in a gated community and believe me there are plenty of ways to get in. Security doesn’t get paid that much…

    I hope Yamma didnt have anything to do with this. She was cheating on him during their marriage. I mean she would pop up at NFL players houses and talk about how she hated her husband so much. Things that make you go hmmm

    I took photos of the Mercedes he drove himself to the hospital in. There’s blood stains all over the driver’s side door on the outside of the door. So sad. Out of respect for the family, I don’t think I will post the photos online. What I can’t believe is that that car is sitting outside in the elements (rain) instead of being protected so evidence isn’t lost from being exposed. The car is at an auto body shop right outside their front door.
