  1. The man was not outside eating ice cream when he was shot ? My girlfriend and I literally witnessed the entire event unfold before our eyes.. due to the fact my girlfriend left her phone at baskin and robins we went back & witnessed this crazy event never will I forget this .. the man’s last moments are on a video I have in my phone , it was an argument went bad but the victim was th e aggressor attempted to provoke a fight and ended up being shot and killed r.i.p.. so this news article is a perfect example of the lies and fear the media attempts to distill in the public to push their further unknown agendas to problems they’ve created . This was truly tragic I witnessed the man get shit and I saw the life leave his eyes.. iam done we will be moving from here soon

  2. Unbelievable. Can’t even have an ice cream in this sh$t section 8 town. Doesn’t sound like they caught anyone. They say Section I is for elderly and disabled but all I see is section 8 is for people running around shooting other people and dealing drugs.

  3. You stupid lady dont blame housing.people like you need your ass beat for opening there mouth to soon.people do what they want to do because they are sick mineded not because there on sec 8.lol stupid lady.crime is every were you go no matter were you move

    • Whether right or wrong, she is entitled to her opinion but you’re dead wrong to say that her ass needs to be beaten for opening her mouth to soon. What you will on others eventually will come back at you twice as hard.

  5. I was born and raised in the city of Pittsburgh said city is the one of the best cities in the Bay Area how dare you call it a Section 8 City they’re working class people and their low-income people but that’s it is still a great City this is one incident with two different individuals with a situation it doesn’t Shadow who the city is and what that tree has become how dare you call it a Section 8 City

    • I was born and raised in Pittsburg too and no longer live there. My relatives have been living there for 70 years. As of late, I hate it and don’t care for it. Its not the Pittsburg I used to know. If the mention of ” Sec 8 city” offends you, then like the French are so fond of saying , “c’est la vi”.

  6. Everyone seems to be missing a bigger problem. Why did a person need to be armed while at Century Plaza? How many cons are armed around us and we walk right passed them?

  7. I just found out the person shot is Bobby, a friend of mine from church. he was a combat Veteran. And a really nice guy.
