  • For 1, He wasn’t even wearing red that day he was killed. He’s walked those streets all his life,and never once has ANYTHING ever happened to him.. Even when he was alone…
    And plus, the situation goes deeper then that. I know from what he told me before this bs happened to him. He ws NOT a trouble maker.. Never once has been in ANY fights nor has he been locked up..
    He was a good kid. Working and taking care of his sister’s and family. What they did to him was uncalled for and disrespectful. He was on his way to buy shoes,and they approached him for no reason at all.
    One girl, I found out who she was and the stuff she was saying about my cousin. People shouldn’t speak on a situation they know nothing about. What the news says is completely different then what our family knows about. It was a set-up, and they will suffer the consequence for ending my kid cousin’s life.

  • From what ive heard, the kid kept riding through the neighborhood on a scooter wearing red, a place where there are blue guys always standing around. His presence and repeated passing caught the attention of the blue guys which at some point caught up with the kid whom they beat up and shot him while he lay on the ground. There were girls present along with the guys who did it.

    It was said that the paramedics who showed up t the scene found a knife on the kid who was shot, idk if he had it to defend himself or for troublemaking– simple thing couldve been to stay off that street (for self defense) and NOT to tempt fate by antagonizing dumb kids.

    Its sad to hear that kids get killed for stupid stuff, a damn color or number which in the end is absolutely not worth their lives.

    I also hope ALL of the kids involved get picked up, including the girls who were allegedly instigating violence on the kid, which mightve ultimately led to his death.

    Smh….RIP kid

  • I hope detectives are looking at these comments!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • We love you cousin rip, may God be with you my son Dangelo urzua will miss you so much XoXo

  • My cousin, Manuel Urzua, didn’t deserve to die… Apparently he’s been having problems with an X girlfriend of his for a few mths.. Calling him and threatening him.. Manuel was a strong person. He tried to avoid dangerous situations. His X girlfriends recent boyfriend threatened to kill him not that long ago… Told him he wasn’t going to live to see his birthday, which is 2mths away.. There’s supposably footage of my cousins death, so they need be caught so my cousin can rest in peace… If it’s over his x, she needs to be charged with his death also since shes the cause of it.My cousin told me about this girl… They better catch her before i do!
