  1. There was a lot of speeding through the neighborhood and hooping and hollering last night. You could just tell something stupid was going to happen.

    • Rez i noticed you said u heard a lot of commotion in your neighborhood that night. If you have any info that could be beneficial please help in finding my cousin’s killer or killers.

  2. This young man was a co-worker and a very kind person. This is obvisously a senseless act of murder. He was a great person that we all loved and will miss. My heart goes out to his family and mother he so dearly loved. Please if you know anything tell the police. He did not deserve this and his family needs answers

  3. My condolences to this young mans family. I do wonder what he was doing walking the neighborhood at 4 am on Saturday. This doesn’t seem random to me, more like a drug deal gone bad at that hour. I’m sure the details will emerge soon.

  4. The gentlemens name was Wil Plummer. If anyone has any information on this story please contact the Seattle PD. He was my cousin and he just moved to the city 6 months ago. We are deeply saddened by our lost, and we will not stop searching for answers.

  5. We are his friends from Tampa. We r very sorry to hear of this.. We nicknamed him nascar.. He loved driving. Wow we are so shocked, a nice young man:( I hope someone will come forward with info– do the right thing if u read this please for his family.. Do the right thing

  7. I didn’t know him know him, but def seen him and shook hands with em a few times. Dude seemed real cool. This is like super crazy. Much respect to the family and a sincere RIP to the homie WIl Plummer.

  8. wilbert was a great guy. sooooo many things could b said but list is too long. whoever did this is a coward

  9. Terrible to see another innocent man go down. Let’s find who did it and why did it happen. Are all these shootings and killing connected or do we just have alotcof random blood thirsty killers out there? Really folks. What the f is going on. I would think somebody could outline a pattern or two. Connect some of the dots. Instead it is like every case is brand new. Just another killing. Seriosly, does SPD not have any intel into this? Is there no member of the community with a tie into the scene that would be will8ng to enlighten us? How can we be so ignorant that murders in a small hood seem random and dealt with as a one time deal? Tom – how about finding a weekly comentator from within the street scene? Give them a pen name and just let be said what ever it is with no holds. Might be a way out for somebody and a good way to cure ignorence of us tighties. I think it would be very important to be topically un edited.

  10. He clearly left with someone after the club. So the idiot who got a ride with him. Prob did it.

    • Well that does sound dangerous! I wouldchave been afraid to leave the club with some dude anddrive to a park at night. He had mire guts fhan me. Good thing for the sake of others that they didn’t go home together.
