“We have to be strong because Travis has other siblings. My mom took Travis from he was born he lived with my mom. After his mother passes in 2000 from illness, my mom adopted him. So Travis is like my nephew and my brother. My mom also has his other siblings there with her. The family is holding up, being strong for them. We just recently had a loss with my Granduncle, Smokey Joe, whom we buried on Monday. It’s a tragedy to the family to have to do this within a week, you understand.”

Inspector Julio Valdez
“Travis Westby of number eighteen Cumberbatch street was seen with five apparent gunshot wounds to the abdomen area, one to the left eye, one to the chin, one on the right arm and two on his leg. Investigation into the matter has revealed that on the same date at eight-thirty p.m., Westby was sitting at his girlfriend’s house located at Lavender Street when suddenly several shots were heard, those shots causing the injuries to Westby. That matter is still undergoing investigation.”
