Daily, it seems as if there is some story like this. But, unlike the other stories, this one hits very close to Hip Hop Vibe’s North Carolina home, as another murder has taken place. Kouren-Rodney Bernard Thomas, photoed above, was murdered by Chad Copley.
Chad Copley is a 39-year-old Raleigh male who saw Thomas among other African-American men. According to Copley, the men were in front of his house and in possession of weapons. He claimed he fired a warning shot, first, but in the end Thomas was dead.
The law enforcement has taken swift action, taking Chad Copley into custody. Apparently, the “crowd” of African-American men in front of Copley’s home was a group of young men entering a house party. Unfortunately, Kouren-Rodney Bernard Thomas didn’t party or survive the shots and Twitter has expressed their disdain.
