According to police, Christopher Walton-Jones, 19, and another person were driving south on North Broadway (above) when a pickup truck heading east on Wall Street entered North Broadway and nearly hit their car.

The other passenger with Walton-Jones then began arguing with the driver of the pickup. Police say that as Walton-Jones and his passenger drove off, the suspect in the pickup fired a shot. The bullet entered Walton-Jones under his armpit, and he was pronounced dead a short time later at an area hospital. Walton-Jones, of the 8500 block of Concord, lived just a couple blocks from the shooting.

Walton-Jones is the city's 93rd homicide this year. An investigation is ongoing.

Sorry your nephew was killed, but it's incidents like this one that show why it's not worth it to get pissed off for a close call. I said nothing wrong.
