If he was in a gang. He was that type of person. I'm sorry, but your friend had a choice and he chose poorly. Use this tragedy as an example and find better friends that will build you and your neighborhood up instead of tearing a neighborhood down. There are good, upstanding families that work and raise their kids that live less than two blocks from there. They have to deal with the junk that your friend brings into an area. All that ignornace and stupidity on S.9th street is because of people like your friend. They are what makes Wilmington downtown a terrible place to live.
