Vice Lords Gang Member Guns Down 72 Year Old With AK-47

Sheaurice Major, 42, and Dontaye D. Singletary, 20

Police in Portage, IN say 72 -year-old Carl Griffith Sr. was going outside to get his mail at 8:30 PM when he was gunned down in his front yard.

His adult son, who ran outside after hearing shots from what he believed to be an AK-47,  found his father in the front yard with multiple gunshot wounds.

Neighbors who were interviewed reported seeing a suspicious car parked in the quiet neighborhood for about two hours prior to the shooting.

Police say they have picked up suspects, Sheaurice Major, 42, and Dontaye D. Singletary, 20, and both face murder and solicitation of murder charges.

The police have not commented on the motive, but Major and the victim were connected through a towing company.

The Post Tribune reports:

Griffith worked at Affordable Towing of Gary, which Major co-owns with her estranged husband Ronnie Major. Ronnie Major served 10 months in prison before being released to Lake County Community Corrections in February..

Also, the victim reported a suspicious incident earlier this month which links Singletary to the crime:

 Earlier on Nov. 1, Griffith reported to Gary Police that he and another driver were shot at in the Glen Park neighborhood when they were called by a woman to pick up a Lexus. Police discovered that Singletary told the woman to call Affordable Towing about towing a Lexus on Kentucky Street.

The woman who called the tow company on behalf of Singletary identified him as a member of the Vice Lords gang.

The police also used cell phone towers to determine that Singletary made cell phone calls in the area near the time of the murder.

  1. This is when you throw away the key, absolutely pathetic, killing people over towing a car.

  2. Its a damn shame. We must speak out against this reckless behavior.

  3. Time and time again I hear Black people whinning abouut the number of Blacks in the prison system never taking into consideration that 98% of them are there for committing crimes they actually did. These Nigger animals who gunned this man down in cold blood are an example of just what I’m talking about. And they aren’t an exception quite frankly they’re the norm. When are we going to tell the truth about this Black Scum running around with no regard for human life and terrorizing our communities? When is what I ask? When are we going to stop making excuses for these Degenerate Nigger Animals and call it like it is. Put me in charge of cleaning up our communities and I will wipe this Nigger Filth from the face of God’s earth so that our people can live in peace. Including executing the 95% of these Nigger Animals in the prisons. People it needs to be done or we will parish if we keep letting these Animals destroy our communties. I can clean it up for you people you just have to decide whether you want to live or parish. it’s your decision.

  4. They should burn these two animals alive, along with all gang members.
