30 rounds sounds like. a lot and pretty personal

Investigators are trying to figure out what might have made the teenager a target, as he had never been arrested before.

It is beleived that someone does know what is going on but has never came forward.

Even tho it was the middle of the day no other bystandards or witnesses were hit and no one has ever been arrested.

The police beleive he was not part of a gang so the question of motive is still a mystery his case is assigned to the detective who is still on the zodiac killers case. Detective Chaplin.

DNA evidence in this case is very slim there is no clothing, no fingerprints or anything besides bullets left behind.

It is told by witnesses that this vehicle came speeding down the road and Aubrey’s last words were “RUN!”

Rumors circulate around saying that he said something to a gang member either sticking up for himself or a friend who was a gang member and he was sticking up for him and got threatened and that threat was taken out.

The victim’s mother, Paulette Brown, said her son was going to summer school at Mission High and was going to be a senior this fall at Raoul Wallenberg Traditional High School. She said her son was a guard on the high school basketball team and worked at the recreation center two to four hours a day.

“He didn’t have time to be involved in any gang — he didn’t have any idle time,” Brown said. “He was a good kid — everyone says he was never in any trouble, he never went to jail, everybody liked him.” Either she or his father took him to school and to work, the mother added. “We always drove him places. He just started doing things on his own.”

The area known as the Northern Panhandle is a calm neighborhood, she said. “That is why I was never worried. Whoever these people were came here. I never experienced any shooting or trouble over here.”

Thomas Mayfield, director of the city’s Bernal Heights Park, said Abrakasa was supposed to accompany a youth group from the park on a trip on Tuesday to Marine World in Vallejo.

Abrakasa had worked at the park since September of last year, helping coach junior leagues in basketball and baseball, Mayfield said.

“He was getting ready for his senior year,” Mayfield said. “He was an excellent player — he was my assistant coach. He was a real good kid, doing positive things; his mother and father supported him. It’s a tragedy.”

Police are investigating whether the shooting was related to an incident a week before at the Bernal Heights gym where Abrakasa worked.

Mayfield confirmed the incident, but said that Abrakasa’s role was to intervene. “The guys were playing basketball. He broke up a little scuffle in the gym.”

Mayfield said he has worked with youth for years to resolve the city’s violence. “Somebody has to do something about this — I don’t know if people in society are numb to this. Something has to be done to stop more of these senseless shootings.”

Just last week, he said, Abrakasa was gathered with other summer youth program participants and talked about his future.

“I asked them, ‘What are you doing? What is your focus?’ ” Mayfield said, adding that the only answers he ruled out were becoming pro athletes or rap performers. Some wanted to go to college, one wanted to be a gynecologist. Aubrey, he said, wanted to work with kids.

“I want to do what you are doing — working with kids,” Aubrey told Mayfield. “I said, ‘right on.’ It really touched me.”Top Picks In Shopping
