Who Killed 17 Year Old Marley Lion?



Such a sad story...really caught my attention today. The shooter is described as a black man. In surveillance video, another black guy walks by before the shooting occurs. There are two suspects seen in the video. One who walks across the parking lot and the other that comes up to try and break into the truck...Police say Lion was shot in the head and died when he got to the operating room at MUSC.He lived long enough to tell them he pulled over to sleep,&give a description of the shooter,&was shot at five times in an attempted robbery. Sadly, two suspects matching the surveillance video were questioned that night,but later let go,despite one saying he was on crack&appearing dangerous to the officers!!

“There is clearly one gunman. That’s all that we have seen,” Burkhardt said.
There is a second man seen in the video, but he’s not thought to have been a participant in the robbery and shooting, Mullen said. He called the unidentified man who walks through the scene several minutes prior to the shooting, a “person of interest.”

“We would like to interview this man. He is not a suspect,” Mullen said.

Based on scrutiny of the video, the shooter is thought to be a black male, 5 feet, 8 inches to 6 feet tall, with a medium to stocky build. He appears to be wearing a pattern shirt, police said.

Police said the man who walks through the parking lot prior to the shooting appears to be black and wearing a long white tee shirt, white socks and black flip flops. Both men appear to be in their late teens to later 20s. There is a second man seen in the video, but he’s not thought to have been a participant in the robbery and shooting, Mullen said.
