dfs cousin was murdered today

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
2 others in his family were shot also. They are in the hospital, they don't think the little boy that was shot in the head is going to make it.

Df grew up with his cousin in coney island new York. They Hung out every day and were best friends. Df is real upset. We live in Texas. I asked him if he wanted to fly out to new York and he said no. He won't talk to me. He's barely said 2 words all night. The last time I seen him like this is when his grandmother passed.

Is there anything I should be doing? I don't know what to do.

The article says the gunman knew the people he shot. Was the shooter a neighbor or how did he know them? That guy that did it looks baked.

I would just give him some space right now. Check out plane ticket prices he will probally want to go after his initial shock wears off. So sorry hang in there and just be a rock for your df.

The guy in the picture is his cousin. Idk why they used that pic. He has lots of pics on his fb and he is a good looking guy. Be also has kids. Idk how many. And I don't know much as to who it was. I only met his family in new York twice over the last 10 years. The info I've gotten has come from dfs mom who lives here in Texas. Her info is coming from family in new York.

Yea that could get confusing going through so many people. So the guy in the picture is your df cousin not the shooter?

From what I saw on the news earlier, 4 people were shot. One had died at the scene, one was thought that they wouldn't make it, and two were in stable condition. :-(

Give him space and just be there when he needs you. My best friends family was murdered last year, and when she wants to talk I just listen and don't say a word. Losing someone by homicide is horrible.
