Have the authorities given any reason given for the shooting?... Was it a targeted 'hit' on him, or just a random act of senseless violence?..

Why does it always seem to be the good people who get hurt by these acts?...

His friend had a couple bags of cocaine on him. I think that kinda speaks for itself.

I just recently learned that Puerto Rico can be a dangerous place. Before, I had just heard what a beautiful place it was to visit.

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

Puerto Rico is beautiful ,as is the Dominican republic. It's safe as long as you aren't dealing drugs .

I hope they found the person responsible and lock him up for life.

He was flashy and cocky... but won fights.  He was the new kid on the block during the ending careers of the middle weight greats roberto duran,  tommy hearns, marvin hagler and sugar ray leonard.  And now he's dead over some sour drug deal.  Seems pointless to achieve something so awesome earlier in life to let it all blow away so easily prevented.  Oh well... later Macho.
