The "bored shooter" Malo D. Gomez, 18, who fired a pistol at some police in a squad car on the streets of North Minneapolis because, he claimed, he was trying to keep himself entertained, goes by "Malo Locco Gomez" on Facebook where his profile has (at the moment) the most public of settings.
As I suspect the Minneapolis police have already been doing, I have downloaded as much information as I can about Malo and his motley crew of contacts, including his brother Dashaunta Gomez. I will be parcelling out that info to Johnny Northside readers when I have free time, which I don't always have in Afghanistan. So feel free to explore Malo Locco Gomez on Facebook on your own.
One interesting piece of news: Ray'Jon Gomez, a 13-year-old killed in August, appears to be related to Malo Gomez.
Due to a bit of a technical glitch that I'm experiencing, it will be necessary to publish one photo with each blog post, which is going to make for a whole lot of blog posts.
This photo, above, of Malo D. Gomez, a/k/a Malo Locco Gomez, has "S.G.C. Shit" superimposed on the photo. I suspect "SGC" stands for "Shot Gun Crip." Note hand sign.
Speculation: Was Ray'Jon shot because of Malo's gang affiliation? Does this shooting finally reveal some kind of motive in the senseless killing of 13-year-old Ray'Jon Gomez?
