“We have several individuals who were engaged in high-risk activities and sometimes those activities turn tragic.”
I guess that’s badgefag-speak for “a pack of niggers were sniping at random white people, and one of them actually managed to land a hit.”
An arrest has been made in the deadly shooting of a 20-year-old UAB student on the top floor of the Riverchase Galleria parking deck.
Michael Jabari Akamune, 20, is charged with murder in the Wednesday killing of 20-year-old Zachariah Taylor Music, the son of a former Birmingham police officer and stepson of a current Birmingham fire lieutenant. Alabama court records do not list prior criminal arrests for either Akamune or Music, however Jefferson County Jail records show Akamune was jailed last year on drug charges.
Hoover police and firefighters responded about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday to the fifth floor of the North Parking Deck. When they arrived, they found Music inside a vehicle suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead on the scene at 1:39 p.m.
“This was not a random shooting and we were aware of that within the first 10 minutes of arriving on the scene,’’ said Hoover police Capt. Gregg Rector. “We have several individuals who were engaged in high-risk activities and sometimes those activities turn tragic.”
Detectives obtained the warrant against Akamune on Saturday. He was booked into the Jefferson County Jail just before 2 p.m. and will be held on $60,000 bond.
