It’s so weird how much skin color effects most of your lives ..on both sides it’s all you see

Ya mama August 2, 2022 - 12:08 AM

What's sad and unheard of is this lady thinking she was around good people. This is why the real history of this country is important.

Sherry Islam August 2, 2022 - 12:08 AM

He is a criminal not a good guy. Killed a young girl for what.

Dan Tanna August 2, 2022 - 12:09 AM

This happens everyday in Chicago

Orchestrated event by Satan. Guns have bad juju then add alcohol ("spirits") on top of that, you become easy prey to do something stupid. Be sober minded in these times.

D V August 2, 2022 - 12:10 AM

Was he trying to shoot her or was he shooting at someone he thought was harming him or was he just freaking out. So many questions?

SpaceAce100 August 2, 2022 - 12:10 AM

OMG! Another Beautiful Girl is dead. The Beautiful Baby Girl hasn't even lived yet.😢
At the very least, Life wo Parole. As a Christian, I'm expected to oppose the death penalty,
but this guy had no problem robbing this Girl of her young life.😡

Americana Dreaming 🇺🇲 August 2, 2022 - 12:11 AM

So he was a 'good guy with a gun' folks keep talking about? This is just awful.

Sky Sutton August 2, 2022 - 12:11 AM

Testosterone is toxic.

BBR Cummins August 2, 2022 - 12:11 AM

Senseless

HTPC August 2, 2022 - 12:12 AM

I wonder if the family of the girl support gun 🔫laws now🤨 I wonder if they pro gun 😏 now you know how much safer is Europe with no guns. If that psycho didn’t
had a gun that girl will be alive right now

J T August 2, 2022 - 12:13 AM

No trial just death sentence, don't care why, 100 % sure he did it, come on system let's start doing right for the victim and families

Vegas Victor August 2, 2022 - 12:13 AM

This is horrible. Bless her and her family. RIP.

John Haney August 2, 2022 - 12:13 AM

This EXACT scenario happened last month in Philadelphia where another young girl got shot and killed by some clown angry he was thrown out of the bar and randomly shot into it smfh

Tom Nohmy August 2, 2022 - 12:14 AM

I think he was triggered, lol. It's not funny but I had to. Rip young lady, my thoughts to family and friends.

mrmink August 2, 2022 - 12:15 AM

This is the epitome of Georgia and every other gun-nut state, and every angry White male.

Gerrit Peacock August 2, 2022 - 12:15 AM

No mention of his professional situation? It's almost as if the lead is being buried.

Bertha Bridges August 2, 2022 - 12:15 AM

What a tragedy. 😢 Condolences to her family. 🙏🏼 May she rest in peace. 🕊

osas uvhnvxtgbvddheds August 2, 2022 - 12:15 AM

V I August 2, 2022 - 12:16 AM

RIP to the victim but I almost lost my temper during the first 5 seconds.

theendorsement August 2, 2022 - 12:17 AM

Days have gone by since this happened, so no info on what he was arguing about with the pizza place, did he know her? Were he friends in the car with her? Eyc eyc.etc.. they gloss over so much. But man, my condolences to the young girl and her family. Smh

Gato 008 August 2, 2022 - 12:17 AM

bacardi mgtow August 2, 2022 - 12:18 AM

well, life goes on

Charles Santee August 2, 2022 - 12:18 AM

Sadly, another One bites the dust (no pun intended)

Daniel romero sol August 2, 2022 - 12:18 AM

Another “law abiding citizens” that shouldn't have access to a Gun.

Phreak August 2, 2022 - 12:20 AM

There is more to this story, significantly more, has to be.

sheabaum20 August 2, 2022 - 12:20 AM

So weird

Edgerton A Hightower August 2, 2022 - 12:21 AM

Too much "head in a book". Balance is key. 🙏 for the teen's family.

None August 2, 2022 - 12:21 AM

Why on Earth would a professor need a gun? This really baffles me why Americans feel the need to own a gun. Simple solution; ban all guns. We get along just fine here in the UK without them.

Devin August 2, 2022 - 12:22 AM

So was it intentional?

Richard Cogbill August 2, 2022 - 12:22 AM

We have to believe it certainly can happen just about anywhere. This is America. Hello.

Lizard King August 2, 2022 - 12:24 AM

Yeah that lady clearly doesn't know what conversation is and how to properly describe a situation…un heard of?… lady that's half od what the news is….unheard of? Like it just never has happend or doesn't…pfft…she must be livin under a rock.

Deez Nuts August 2, 2022 - 12:24 AM

So sad. Rip angel

Saul Teanuts August 2, 2022 - 12:25 AM

What an awful, gun clutching pooner filled country.

N/A August 2, 2022 - 12:26 AM

huh? A professor lost his temper and just shot a random girl in a car? This story seems likes it’s missing a few details. It just doesn’t make any sense. Professors are on the more
Intelligent side of society. They don’t just snap that easily.

M.T.R. August 2, 2022 - 12:27 AM

What if we stopped debating guns since everyone is so entrenched in their own beliefs and values about them, and just focused on kindness and empathy and teaching everyone how to separate negative emotions from devastating actions that can’t be taken back?

Red Top Racer August 2, 2022 - 12:28 AM

Incredible amount of missing information here! Great reporting!

Mabel Pup August 2, 2022 - 12:28 AM

These folks wouldn’t believe if this happened in South Central LA..oblivious to everything

Kenny T August 2, 2022 - 12:28 AM

One less woke fake professor

ihswap August 2, 2022 - 12:29 AM

If only the victim who was clueless in her car had a gun, a license to carry and awareness LV. 100 all this would've been prevented. Smh Thoughts and prayers 🙏 #MoGunz

Scott Mac-Cheese Rae August 2, 2022 - 12:29 AM

The gun nuts armed yet another "law abiding citizen" who swore up and down that he would always be responsible with his gun. Oh well…the dead girl should be happy that guns make us all so free and so safe!
