Both men were released from jail on drug charges just three days before the deadly mass shooting.

Family members of the Wilson began yelling at the family members of the accused. It got so emotional that the judge had to evacuate the courtroom. No one was hurt and it did not get physical. Police do not believe the 10 year old was the intended target.

Today marks the 55th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior’s “I Have A Dream” speech. The civil right leader delivered the famous speech before a crowd of over 200,000 people on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
