Kerry Lathan, the 56-year-old man who allegedly helped dress during the shooting in the parking lot of his marathon store, was arrested shortly after the shooting for violating his probation by associating with “Nipsey,” a known gang member, even though he had also been murdered. While this contradicts earlier reports that Nipsey went to the uninsured store to help his friend with new clothes after he finished serving a 20-year sentence for murder, it appeared in both cases that the charge against he was weak from the outset and that the sentence was too harsh and unjust to criminalize a man who had just been murdered. Lathan told VladTV in an interview that he had not met Nipsey in the store, as mentioned earlier, but that Nipsey was in the parking lot, and Lathan thought the store owner “might be able to help” him with a stock market problem.
