An innocent Texas man was gunned down at a balloon-release ceremony of a shooting victim, and the gunman is no other than the decedent’s brother.
22-year-old Norman Christopher Collier IV read erroneous Facebook posts incriminating Kolby Marquise Graham as the killer of his brother.
Collier’s younger brother Camran was shot and killed on April 22 while sitting in his car. The grieving suspect mistakenly believed Graham was his sibling’s shooter.
“Collier mistakenly believed the internet rumors about his brother’s killer,” DeSoto Police said. “He then took revenge against the wrong man at his brother’s balloon release ceremony by shooting Kolby Graham.”
“In response to the senseless killing of a person wrongly identified as a murder suspect, we are URGING citizens to use caution & common sense when posting information to social media.”
