Alexander Calloway, 21, and his two cousins were trying to enter the gas station on Martin Luther King and Belarbor around 3:30 a.m., but the store was locked.

The young men got into an argument with the clerk, who unlocked his door and came outside, police said.

Someone punched the clerk in the face and the clerk pulled out his gun and shot Calloway in the stomach, according to HPD.

This is the same video at that link...

Looks to me like the clerk should be charged with some form of murder.

Yes, he got punched, but then to straight up shoot the guy... no.

He shouldn't have opened the door.

That said.

He was assaulted.

Out numbered.

So he defended himself.

Wonder who the guys were in quasi military grab walking with the protesters.

Agree that he shouldn't have opened the door... stupid.

He was attacked... after the punch, pointing the gun and telling them to go away would have been appropriate... pulling it out and shooting the guy just for the one punch was too far imo.

If both guys were punching him, it's different. One punch, from one guy, shooting is too much.

It's easy to say what is "too much" when you aren't involved.

The more that I think about it, he might have become an accessory by opening the door.

Hard to draw a weapon when two people are pounding your face.

I would like to see the entire video.

Agree with that... but from what I can see on the video, the shooting looks excessive.

Would also like to see the rest.

Doubt anyone else punched him.

We've heard of the knock out games where the intent is to find unsuspecting people and knock them out and beat them. That dude took quite a shot to the jaw. That being said...I think he went overboard. As far as the dude shot, in no way is he innocent.

Did he die?

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
