A woman who saw Scott on the ground told CBS4 he went by the name Loose. She said he was homeless and she’d given him 10 dollars to buy food earlier in the day after he confided in her about a dilemma.

“He asked me like what should he do if someone was following him,” she said.

“He doesn’t do anything to anybody from since the days that I’ve seen him he’s always to himself talking to himself walking, he always take the back way he doesn’t take the main road,” she added.

Anyone with information on the shooting is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS (8477).
