I happen to be good friends with this victim's aunt. When I visited this site, one of his relatives pointed: "That's where he tried to run out of. That's his shirt right there"...

I heard this murder, I work nearby. When it was obvious that someone had been shot, I was surprised how long it took for any sirens to come. The next day, I heard it was a young man, over a basketball game; and I thought, dear God, his poor mother...EVERYONE who gets killed has a mother, sisters, children, wife, best friend, brothers & father -- somebody who will cry for them, someone whose heart will break. I wish people would think of that before something goes down.

I read about this and it was so sad & disgusting! I hope they catch the suspect before he kills again, which he will.

Willie wasn a real close friend of mines. I considered him to be an older brother. People dont realize that when they kill someone they are taking away a person who meant alot to somebody. I feel like a piece of me is now missing now that he is gone. May my brother rest in peace and continue to watch over me. I love you bruh and I will always and forever miss you and be thinking of you...I love you Willie, Love your lil sis Savannah

I grew up with willie in dogtown and he was never the one to start any trouble, I play on that same court every day. Willie will always be a winner.

Hey this is your cousin,
How do you ever get over loosing someone the way we all lost you?
You don't you just have to know that they are in a much better place.
I love you Willie you were not just family you were my friend and you will always be in my heart.
I can't wait to see you again.
People need to take life more seriously it's a shame people feel they have to kill over something so senseless and cold.
