Los Angeles police report that a store employee was shot and killed outside the Shoe Palace in the Fairfax district Wednesday. The shooting happened just before 12:30 p.m. outside the store located at Melrose Avenue.

The 26-year-old victim, Jayren Bradford, was taken to a nearby hospital where he died.

Mr. Bradford, was shot Wednesday afternoon as he tried to break up a fight that was happening outside the Shoe Palace, colleagues tell FOX 11. According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the fight stemmed from an argument involving a shoe raffle.

According to detectives, the victim was not working at the time but was on his way to the store when he was gunned down. Bradford was alleged to have been trying to break up the argument when the thugs turned their rage toward him.

An investigator working on the case told ABC7, “There was some sort of dispute over that raffle. The victim arrived and a male Hispanic pulled a gun and fired a shot at the victim, causing this injury.”

The suspect fled the scene in a dark colored sedan and has yet to be aprehended.

The senseless shooting was caught on video from multiple angles, where you can see the victim being approached by a group of a dozen or so, mostly men.

[VIDEO] Actress Jurnee Smollett Plays Race Card in Call to ‘Free Jussie’ — ‘Stop Locking Up Our People’

Published

on

Jussie Smollett’s sister, actress Jurnee Smollett, is calling for Cook County to “#FreeJussie” following her brother’s sentencing Thursday, telling her followers they should advocate for his release — because of disparate incarceration between black and white Americans — even if they believe he is guilty.

Jurnee Smollett’s call for Cook County to “#FreeJussie” comes after her brother was sentenced to 150 days in jail for staging a fake hate crime against himself in January 2019.

“Black Americans are incarcerated in state prisons at nearly five times the rate of White Americans,” she wrote in her Instagram caption. “Jussie is innocent. And… you don’t have to believe in his innocence to believe he should be free.”

The actress included the hashtags “Free Jussie” and “Stop Locking Up Our People.”

In January 2019, Smollett had claimed he was physically attacked by two men wearing red hats who put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him, and shouted racial and homophobic slurs at him, before eventually yelling, “This is MAGA country!” in reference to former President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan.

On Thursday, Judge James Linn sentenced Smollett to 150 days in jail, 30 months of probation, restitution of $120,106, and a fine of $25,000.

“You’re just a charlatan, pretending to be a victim of a hate crime,” Judge Linn told Smollett during Thursday’s sentencing, adding that the actor’s “very name has become an adverb for ‘lying.’”

“Your performance on the witness stand, this can only be described as pure perjury,” the judge added. “You committed hour upon hour upon hour of pure perjury.”

Smollett is now a convicted felon.

The actor repeatedly shouted, “I am not suicidal, and I am innocent” as he was being hauled off to jail on Thursday.

On Saturday, Smollett’s brother Jocqui Smollett reported that the actor has been placed in a psych ward at the Cook County jail.

Wisconsin Waiter Shot in the Face by Two Women After Forgetting Their Hamburger

Two women in Wisconsin have been charged with first-degree intentional homicide after shooting a restaurant server in the face after he forgot to bring one of the hamburgers they ordered.

Bryanna Johnson and Breanta Johnson, both 20 years old, were in a group of four at a George Webb restaurant in Wauwatosa. This group was being “impatient and rude”, according to one of the restaurant staff members.

One of the women in the group was even asked to leave, which she did but only for a brief period of time before returning to the establishment. Later, while the group of women was up by the register, one of them punched their 26-year-old server in the face, then proceeded to pull out a handgun and shot the victim in the face while he was lying on the ground.

The victim, who was, fortunately, able to survive the gunshot wound, told the police that the altercation was a result of the women’s order missing a hamburger. Apparently, that’s what this man’s life was worth to these women. A single hamburger.

Bryanna and Breanta Johnson’s bond is set at $100,000 and are scheduled to appear in court for preliminary hearings on February 15.
