    He is a known drug dealer in the area. People have complained about the activity on Lizzie Road, but nothing has changed.

    I wonder if this was drug related?

    First, he killed his own mother and got off. Now, he shoots someone else. He should NOT get off this time. All of the poor dead woman's male kids have been to jail except one. Such a mess.
