I love how folks tell me that St. Albans is one of the better neighborhoods. I have been there and there is a lot of crap over there, garbage, abandoned cars and a deteriorating St. Albans Little League Field which is nothing but high weeds (and not the good kind). And of course shootings and killings, which several have taken place there, including this one.
It seems some punk-ass thug, 32 year old Nakia Garnett got into a verbal argument with Phillip Harris, 32, and as typical with punk-ass thugs, pulled a gun and killed Harris. The argument took place a little before 6:00am, always not a good sign.
More young black lives that do no matter to other young black men.
Houston, will have a major problem.
