    If you listen and watch the clip in one of these stories, you see that Eric Black Jr. is indeed black—but he says that another person named Larry W. is the guy who opened fire. He also says that they weren’t in a pick-up truck.

    This is a mess.

    Not surprised it was gang related. In part, social media took control of the narrative and misinformation spread from there. I'm sure the conspiracy theories are already in full swing.

    The shooter is 21 smh.

    Yeah both people are young black males.......I hate that the immediate reaction was racial and the sketch was completely off.

    Didn’t the victims say the suspect was a white man in a pickup truck? It wasn’t just social media that made it racial.

    If the shooter “Larry W” is not at least light skinned, I think I might call foul too.

    Apparently after the shooting there was a white guy also at the light who took off once he heard the gunshots. They assumed the white guy in the red truck shot at them because that's the face and who was in proximity and he peeled off, even another witness assumed he did and tried to catch him, but allegedly :look: he was just someone trying to get away from what popped off....the way some people would try to get away when bullets start flying.

    That said, I'm not surprised either way. I still want to know if dude in red truck has been found and talked to. No one has said whether he has.

    They killed a seven year old in Texas... they'll be getting the death penalty. Justice will be served!

    What I read on the news was that these two African Americans were after someone else they had dealt with (altercation?) earlier the same day in the same kind of vehicle that the mom and her daughter were in. They supposedly did not even know they had 'hit' the wrong car until they saw the news.

    My view is that cowardice requires you to perform a sneak ninja attack in the form of a drive by shooting--their veins are all yours Texas--enjoy.

    I don't want to hear a story about being raised without a father and associating with a bad crowd--you are the bad crowd. The driver is so dumb--admitting that the intent was to assassinate someone. I would have denied knowing what was going to go down.

    Which I’m sure delayed the apprehension of the true killers.

    Apparently Shaun King offered a reward for the killer. A tip was called in that led to these fools.

    I'm still tryna figure out how the people in the car misidentified who shot them and the shooters misidentified whose car they shot up. How did both sides get this so wrong?

    I'm also irritated that the black internets was all abuzz about this story when it was a white man murdering a black girl. Find out it's two ninja's and it's crickets.

    I don't think the mom saw who shot them, I thought she said that after the shots she looked and saw the red pickup truck speeding off. She assumed that was the shooter.

    Exactly it’s almost like we accept this scenario and not the other. They both are wrong!

    This is from Shaun King on Facebook. Screenshot_20190108-153445_Facebook.jpg This may explain some confusion

    ^That was helpful. I had also read somewhere that there were witness accounts. I guess I was taking "EYE"witness a little two literally since they didn't see it the shooting they just heard the shots.

    Crickets on a country summer night! smh

    I hate to say it but although I commend King for turning in the tip, I wonder if there would have been any interest in the case if the suspect wasn't a white male.

    Not exactly crickets, ladies. These dummies were very busy on Twitter calling Shaun King a snitch. Yes, you read that right. A little black girl dies and they are coming at him for snitching. And let's not forget them showing their butts on Twitter; black men and women at each other's throats to cape for R. Kelly and drag John Legend for being the lone voice supporting these women when everybody knew. I am about to be so done with a certain segment of black people. The nignorance! I love my people but ain't no saving happening with a good portion of them. Social media is so depressing. Rewind the world back to when you just suspected folks were stuck on stupid instead of digital proof of it every.single.day.

    Bystanders also said that it was the person in the red truck.

    The below is TRAGIC.

    I just remember someone on here saying about how people caped for R.K. and I could not believe it. Fast forward to recently at a party, someone says she still listens to his music, he's talented blah, blah:blah:, he's no different than most these entertainers, separate the music from the artist...:blah:. I tried to mention some of the worst dirt he's done and she's like :lala::ignore: :noevil:

    I wanted to be like:catfight: :hammer: :nuts: but it was like :deadhorse:

    I don't understand:brainy:
