Dixon asked Hughes if he had a gun, and Hughes smiled and took a sip from a beer he was holding, prosecutors said. Ross said to Dixon that Hughes had disrespected the gang they belong to, and Dixon punched Hughes in the head, causing him to hit his head on the wall and fall down the stairs. Ross kicked Hughes in the head, and Hughes became unresponsive, causings witnesses to think he already had been killed, prosecutors said.
Ross and Dixon dragged Hughes outside into an alley between Central and Parkside avenues, and shot Hughes four times, killing him, prosecutors said.

Passivity is no gateway to safety.
Logged as another “child gun death”?

“Therefore, it is the judgment of this court that the Sheriff or other designated law enforcement officer shall take these condemned to a place of execution where they shall be hung by the neck until dead. This hearing is adjourned.”
Not a problem, they got special permission from their gang to carry, that supersedes something as silly as the law.
......The audience is dismissed.
