That is an old picture of him (from 2009). He does not look like that anymore. Maybe you should get his most recent photograph so the community knows what to look for.

No family structure and TV as a role model.

Todays television anyways. I see so much violence now then before that I just don't watch unless it is a BBC broadcast. American television needs to tone it down.

Just as Charlie Sheen says...."WINNing".

Not trying to start an argument here but seems like there have been some murders and suspected murders in some the wealthier communities too lately. The woman who was murdered from the Gross Pointe area and her body found in Detroit, husband a person of interest, just to name one.

Why does it seems that people who live in poorer neighborhoods can't seem to control their temper and the only way to settle a dispute is with a gun?

I blame the president and everyone on down for the problems this man is having. Government is to blame. Pure and simple.

There is HUGE family structure but no positive role models for several generations. The youth are never taught positive coping methods and they repeat what they see. Some are able to break free from the cycle and blossom because there was at least one person who cared. Others have no one and no reason to be different than their older brothers/sister, mother/father, aunt/uncle and so on. The look on his face speaks a thousand words "I don't look angry because I'm mad at myself for my actions. I look angry because I got caught"

How is it that when you read an article about shootings/murder/attempted murder, the chances are pretty good that it will be in West Willow or in this case--Macarthur Blvd?

There are 2 Stevens drives. One off Congress and one between Ypsi Twp and Superior Twp. That one might actually be spelled Stephens.


Fri, Feb 3, 2012 : 11:46 p.m.

Stevens Drive is off of Congress, near Hewitt, not even close to Macarthur.

24 years old, what a waste of life. I guess he is really armed and dangerous, and using drugs to boot. Hoping he is caught soon, but all need to be very careful as they approach him. Does this thug have a permit to carry? I trust WCSD will find him.

This is not the proper way to end an argument but it is becoming the norm nowadays.


Fri, Feb 3, 2012 : 9:51 p.m.

@The Black Stallion3, it does seem that way doesn't it? What ever happened to if an argument escalated if may have just result in a fist fight and a few bruises?


Fri, Feb 3, 2012 : 7:14 p.m.

5'6"? That explains the mug shot angle.
