    I was there and the suspect they have is the wrong man. It's sad that a young lost his life, but it's worse when an innocent man is charged for something he did not do. While this man has been charged with this murder, police is giving the real killer time to run. SAD!!!

      People that know this man is innocent why not come forward. At least call the police and give a name or tell what you saw.

    OK you can take the picture down, he's not going anywhere. What will you do when it's proven that he didn't do it?

    Typical Rocky Mount! Not surprised there! Give him the death penalty if he is found guilty. Guess his street cred is more important than anything else!

    I really don't know what to say about any of this. However, it is not my place to judge but what I will do is pray for the children and family of Jakwan. He is missed and was loved by many including myself. R.I.P Kwan

      I didn't realize they were selling tickets. Was the fight advertized on the radio?
