Basketball Hopeful Killed For His Beats by Dre Headphones in Front of a Group of Children
What is wrong with people??? Really? It’s worth taking a man’s life over some headphones??? SMH. This story makes me feel so bad for our society. A 21-year-old Philadelphia man, Christian Massey, was shot 5 times and killed for his ‘Beats by Dre’ headphones. The shooter then ran off without the headphones. We have to do better people. So senseless. Our thoughts & prayers are with Christian’s family. Details after the jump…
An armed man opened fire on Christian Massey, 21, in a nearby alley.
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. The headphones lay near Massey’s lifeless body. He had purchased them for about $300 on Black Friday.
“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.”
His goal was to play basketball and buy a house for himself and his sisters. Philadelphia Police have no leads and are seeking the public’s help with identifying a suspect
