“People have to ask the question because you’ve had two brothers who passed away from gun violence. Your mother has been against it. Do you think you’re being targeted or was this just wrong place at the wrong time?”

Terry Felix
“I think I was at the wrong place at the wrong time. The person that came, the person that they hold, I saw him several times riding round on different days and time and he never approached me with nothing like that. I don’t have anything with him. So I think I was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
