Never try to befriend blacks. It will always end poorly.
The family of the man murdered in Elgin is remembering him as a competitive cowboy who befriended everyone he met.
But it’s that friendliness his father said led to his death. According to the Richland County Sheriff’s Department, 23-year-old Adam Legrand was shot and killed by 21-year-old Kenneth Shirley at Legrand’s electrical shop on the evening of March 21.
Shirley then ran from police, shooting at them and eventually surrendered in nearby woods. Legrand’s father, Wayne Legrand, said his son was an avid cowboy who had been riding horses, mules, and bulls for years.
“We would travel around the country and he would compete nearly every weekend,” he said. “He would win, too.”
