    RIP - Jermaine - You were always one of the good ones to come up in Lorain and I'm sorry I never got back to you after you left your # at my mom's house in Lorain a few months back. Know that I valued your friendship and wish your family and children the best in life. When will senseless violence end? RIP

    THIS IS VERY SAD THAT SOMEONE CHOOSE DEATH FOR THE YOUNG MAN. HE DID NOT DESERVE THIS, AND NIETHER DID THE PEOPLE LIVING IN THE APARTMENTS. SOME OF THESE PEOPLE ARE SINGLE MOTHERS WHO COULD HAVE BEEN HOME AND HAD TO EXPLAIN WHAT HAPPEN TO THEIR YOUNG CHILD. ALSO I NOTICED IN ONE OF THE POST THIS MAN WAS A FATHER HIMSELF, THIS IS SAD AND GOD DOES NOT WANT US LIVING THIS WAY. BLESS ALL OF YOU WHO KNEW AND LOVED THIS MAN, AND REMEMEBER DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD DO UNTO YOURSELF. LOVE ONE OTHER, WE ARE ALL FAMILY. AND TO THE PERSON WHO DID THE HORRIBLE ACT MAY YOU FIND GOD, AND GET HELP MY CHILD.

    I bet this was either drug or gang related. It is sad that there have been so many shootings in Lexington in the past month. This is definitely a terrible tragedy. Nobody deserves to die like this. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family that has to survive through this devastating time on their lives. JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL!!!!
