Horrible story.
Mention of SJU. Likely confusion over scholarship and preferred walk on but still tragic. I believe he was close with Posh.

A young man who I have mentioned for many year (he now plays basketball at Fisk) knew Brandon very well.

I spoke with him this morning and he was crying throughout our conversation

Said Brandon was an only child and a great young man with a very bright future

Also said his mother was very strict

He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time

A tragic, senseless and devastating loss

R.I.P.

The Daily News and NY Post wrote articles in the last hour that he was still deciding on college and the News said he was considering a JUCO in California. Seems like he wanted to continue playing basketball. Again really sad.

Horrible. Am I the only one concerned that New York City has regressed back to the late 70's and 80's with the scum and how that can turn off recruits? Where have you gone, Rudy Giuliani?

It hasn’t regressed to anything like the 70’s, 80’s and early 90’s. But it is sliding backwards and if not careful and diligent, it definitely can and in a relatively short time.

Murders are up year over year but it's still a fraction of the rate in the 70s, 80s, 90s when you were averaging 2K to 2.5K.

All are senseless, but this one hammers the gut--given the comments about this kid's character.
