Lawana Hughes: Charged in Murder Following Female Gunfight Outside Club

Two women were injured and another killed following a bar fight early Saturday morning in north St. Louis. According to police and prosecutors, the disruption began around 3:30 a.m. outside a nightclub in the 3100 block of N. Grand (below).

Police arrived on the scene to find Adell Jones, 29, shot in the torso and 42-year-old Lawana Hughes shot in the arm and her friend, an unidentified 40-year-old female, shot in the leg. 

According to prosecutors, Jones got into a fight with the 40-year-old and Hughes went to her car and returned with a gun to assist her friend. She then shot Jones. It's unclear, at this point, how Hughes and her friend were shot. 

This past weekend Hughes was charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action. Police say she has priors for both drug possession and prostitution. A mugshot was not immediately available with Hughes transferred to the hospital following the shootings.

Open up any newspaper and tell me what the skin color is.What happens every time a large group of blacks get together?

The race card is old and really worn out.Aspire to be something other than a rapper or basketball player or a baby momma.Before you try to blame everyone else, look in the mirror.

The colored people on the board:(colored people/person of color...... whatever, don't flatter your big lipped, fat assed selves anymore with lofty titles) 

Keep in mind the ghettos slums you live in used to be OUR neighborhoods until you fucking ruined them. Then you drove all the jobs out of the country with your crime, immorality and laziness.

If you ask a White child what they want to be when they grow up they will respond with societal benefitting aspirations such as cop, firefighter, mechanic, doctor, lawyer, veternarian.......

If you ask a Colored child what they want to be when they grow up they will respond with typical "black cultural" aspirations "Ize wantz ta bee N-O-T-O-R-I-U-S"

I anyone here is suffering from "White Guilt" - You are sick and need to get help. White Guilt is a destructive illness that makes you feel guilty for absolutely no reason whatsoever, Blacks, jews and others that infect you with White Guilt are shysters and scam artists. They are using you like a drug dealer uses an addict. Break free of your illness.

We hear you.  Some of you like to use your comments to reveal that black on black crime is indeed legendary.  Despite the fact that everyone knows the reality about crime north of I-40, it seems like some of you take a little too much pleasure in it.

North St. Louis is fucked up.  Black people kill other black people....a lot.  Playing the race card is alive and well.  We get it and lots of people wouldn't disagree with you.

But let's remember that these are still humans and they're still dying violently.  No one should be happy that's happening.  It's bad enough that it's a reality without you wishing it.

I think a lot of the jealousy whites have stems from the fact that whites have tiny dicks. whites have always been jealous of the Black man's superior cocksmanship. You see it all the time the way white women will gather around the Black man and leave the little white boyz in the dust. Maybe yall white people should get bigger dicks and then you'll stop being such racists. Nothing! I mean nothing is as important to Black folk as BIG Black Snake!
