try reading the arrest records of the victim and of the accused murderer! I knew the victim and having a drug problem does not excuse someone killing him. I hope the killer gets what he deserves !

Dumb question. Your article says the suspect was attacked by the victim with a sword during a fight. He responded by shooting the attacker. How is this "murder"? Are we missing "the rest of the story"?
