    Man shot to death on south side bus stop was my 18 yr. old cousin. He will be missed dearly. He was on this earth a short time. How could someone be so cruel to do something like this. Do murderers know when they take a life, they take more then one. Our family loved this young man dearly. He was on hisway to school. What’s with teens and guns? I pray someone come forward and help us find this person. If not God will. RIP lil cuz. Ray- Ray, the family will miss u dearly. You’re with your grandmother now, we miss the both of you. We will always love you guys.
