Justice for Zeb

This petition had 954 supporters

My grandson Zebulun E. Bacon was murdered on July 25th at 0630 at a townhouse at the intersection of West Jewell Ave. and 1700 block Coal

There were three people in the lower portion of the townhouse my 16 year old grandson another 16 year old and the person that shot my grandson a 23 year old John Martinez. 

All during the early morning hours the three of them were partying and talking back and forth and also it seems that there was some mouthing off back and forth, at around 0630 Martinez picked up a revolver and shot my grandson just above the heart killing him about instantly he was pronounced at the hospital around 0700.

Mr. Martinez is apparently claiming he didn't know that the revolver was loaded so he is being charged with murder in the second degree, I want and believe he should be charged with first degree murder due to the fact that it takes premeditation to pick up a firearm, point it at a child of 16 years of age and PULL THE TRIGGER!
