My condolences to his family and friends. I hope the killer is caught quickly. How sad that someone could be capable of killing anyone, must less an elderly person minding their own business. RIP Sir.

I reside near this neighborhood and hear gunshots quite often. Stonehenge is a poverty stricken neighborhood notorious for its criminal activity. I feel bad for the people who are forced to live in this neighborhood JUST because they can't, or don't know how to, break the poverty cycle. It's a Slum Lord's haven as many of the homes in that neighborhood are rented from lazy landlords who never make repairs but are quick to get that rent money. Terrible neighborhood, hands down.

To the family of Mr. Scott: I pray that justice, peace, and answers come quickly.
