Glad he did this. Now, maybe they will get the other suspect. This was a senseless tragedy.

I bet he wishes now that he had that moment back when he pulled the trigger and took another human being life for nothing. To pull a trigger is the easy part, but to spend the rest of your life in jail is the dumb part.
