I express sorrow to his friends. It sounds like he was very fortunate in his friends, and they in him.

When they catch the shooter,he should be brought to the top of the Bank of America Building and thrown off!! Make sure it is shown on all the T.V. stations that way only those who think they can fly will be murders!! That will stop all the cowards who think they are tough guys.

This is such a trajedy. Just 10 months ago Phil attended another friends service who also lost his life to gun violence. When will we as a community come together to try to stop this from happening. Young men should not be losing their lives this way. RIP Phil. You were too young to die. I'm sure Londell is waiting at the gates for you.

This is such a horrible tragedy. I didn't know Phil, but my husband was good friends w/ him when they were younger. It just really saddens me, because life is so precious, and we take advantage of all the wonderful things we have.His life was cut so short,but I'm sure God needed him for some important reason. It's just hard because he went in such a horrible way! :( My prayers are w/ you Phil, your family and your friends that I'm sure loved you very much and will greatly miss you!RIP.
