Yeah, but this isn’t big enough of a deal to make national headlines. Neither of these guys were famous black “musicians” like this chap, so they don’t matter.
Two men face capital murder charges following fatal shootings last week in Mesquite that police believe were drug related.
Cassius Shakembe Williams, 20, and Rozman Rah-saan Shannon Jr., 21, each face two counts of capital murder, police said. The bonds for all four charges were set at $500,000 for each charge.
Police responded to reports of gunfire about 4 p.m. on June 12 in the area of Gus Thomasson Road and Whitson Way. Police found two gunshot victims who were later identified as Jacob Bradley Hollett, 19, of Mesquite and Dalton James Prater, 18, of Fate, police said.
Hollett was found in the driver’s seat of a gray Nissan with several gunshot wounds, police said. He was hospitalized and died of his injuries.
Prater was found shot to death in the driver’s seat of a red Dodge pickup truck, police said.
