Sounds more like a hit than NAM violence
But Rich’s father has said the 4 a.m. murder, in which Rich was shot several times from behind, did not appear to be a robbery, as his son’s wallet and watch were not taken.
This sounds more like a deliberate hit than NAM violence.
NAMs wouldn’t be afraid of a lone white guy, and they would enjoy physically beating him up. When NAMs shoot guns, it’s usually because they are pissed at someone they know (and those types of NAMs are extremely unlikely to know and have a personal beef with a SWPL DNC staffer) or involves gang warfare. I haven’t heard of NAMs randomly shooting strangers. So this is either a hit, or a new and deadly escalation of the “knockout game.”
The shooter wanted to kill the victim and get out of there ASAP without getting caught, thus nothing was stolen. Getting out of there fast was more important to the shooter than taking the time to remove the victim’s possessions to make the hit more realistically look like a robbery.
