A 21-year-old man was gunned down in broad daylight after refusing to give an armed man his expensive headphones on Sunday.
Christian Massey was shot in a Philadelphia alley where children were playing nearby.
According to NBC:
The armed man first demanded Massey’s Dr. Dre Beats headphones. Massey did not comply and tried to run, witnesses say. The suspect shot five rounds, striking and killing Massey.
Police found the headphones, which Massey purchased for about $300 on Black Friday, next to his lifeless body.
Authorities are investigating the shooting and are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect.
“To me, he was my child,” said Eula Hodge, his grandmother. “Why did they have to shoot him. They didn’t get what they shot him for so he was shot for nothing.”
Our condolences to his family.
