What About Your Friends: Behind Shawty Redd's Murder Charge (Pg. 4)

“They were at Strokers and Damon was shooting pool and he got into it with some guy name Blue or something,” Squeak claims. “And Damon was yelling at him and Shawty went over to the pool table telling Damon to chill out and Damon was like, ‘How you gon’ tell me to chill out? I’m your man!’”

Also, tensions allegedly began to rise between the two over Martin’s financial situation. “It wasn’t really arguing but [money] was like an issue … just how [Damon] always helped him out in the beginning and in the end, he really didn’t have anything. He was calling on me and his mom to send him money out there, just to eat.”

It’s been widely reported in the media that Martin attended a New Year’s Eve party at Stewart’s mansion the night prior to his death, but according to Squeak, this is false.

“It wasn’t a party,” he says. “[Some of] the people who live with Shawty were at the house at midnight and they did a New Year’s Eve toast together. And then they all went out and Damon wanted to stay home. [A female friend of Damon] texted him close to 4 a.m. on New Year’s and he said that he was by himself in the house and everybody else had went out. The next day I got a call that Shawty Redd shot him.”

According to the Henry County Assistant District Attorney Trea Pipkin, five shots were fired, one hitting Martin in the back as he fled the house. Police recovered three guns and five shell casings at the scene.

Squeak says a mutual friend who was at the home shortly after the shooting called him the following day and relayed details of Martin’s final minutes.

“Damon was outside saying, ‘Help me! I’m getting cold, I’m dying! Please help me!’ And Shawty was supposedly just sitting on the porch smoking,” Squeak says, adding that Martin wound up dying in that friend’s arms.

According to ADA Pipkin, Stewart called police approximately 43 minutes after the shooting. “That in itself should be enough to show the court that this was a malicious act,” said Pipkin.

Squeak says that everyone who knew Martin and Stewart’s relationship remains frozen with shock and confusion. ––Linda Hobbs

Charlottesville Killer Receives Life Sentence Plus 419 Years

James Alex Fields Jr will spend the rest of his life behind bars for driving his car into a crowd of counter-protestors in Charlottesville, Va., which injured many and killed 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

According to reports, Judge Richard Moore sentenced the 22-year-old white supremacist to life in prison plus 419 years. Fields, who reportedly had a picture of Adolf Hitler framed by his bed, drove from Ohio to attend the 2017 Unite The Right Rally with fellow racists and neo-Nazi's to protest the removal of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee statue.

The event also drew Heyer and other counter-protestors who marched against white nationalism. The violence forced local authorities to declare an unlawful assembly and begin the process of demobilizing everyone. Later on the same day, Fields drove his car into a crowd killing Heyer and hurting others.

The event caused already bubbling racial tensions in America to spill over when during a press conference Donald Trump blamed "both sides" for the turmoil.

DMX Is Cleared In The Case Of A 'Stolen' Corvette

Rapper DMX will reportedly not face any charges after it was believed his was driving a “stolen” vehicle back in May.

The rapper reportedly left a Los Angeles restaurant in another person’s car, after the valet accidentally gave him and his entourage the wrong set of keys. The valet mix-up created a potential issue for X, as authorities believed that driving a stolen vehicle was grounds for a probation violation as it pertained to his tax evasion case. Police reportedly were able to retrieve the vehicle, and no one was arrested.

“DMX met with his probation officer and everything is fine,” the MC’s attorney, Murray Richman, told TMZ. “We're told the rapper's in the clear as far as a potential probation violation goes.”

As far as his professional life goes, DMX reportedly joined the cast of Chronicle Of A Serial Killer back in April. He also gave a rousing sermon at Kanye West’s Sunday Service performance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in the spring.

“Doors that were once closed are now open for me,” he said. “I am God’s favorite child…I have supernatural increases and promotion. Like the restoration of everything the devil has stolen from me. This is the day, time, and moment for me to experience the free grace of God.”
