This was a boy not a man he was just 17, shot dead in front of his twin brother and his father. Get your facts straight. From what the neighbors saw no effort was made by the police to do CPR and the ambulance was held around the corner till the neighbors intervened and demanded to know where the ambulance was. From what everyone saw this young man was left to bleed to death.

It just breaks my heart to read about this 17 year old being shot in front of his twin brother and father followed by failure to render aid. Why did APD ail to render life saving assistance and hold the ambulance? Upsetting!
