Cross-dresser Joseph Sanchez was but one of three murders which happened over the weekend. 38 year-old Emerson “Ras Emo” McDonald and 25 year-old Derrick “Beng” Parham were gunned down in two separate shootings over the weekend.

 McDonald, a father of 3, was walking with a friend on Central American Boulevard on Sunday, January 12, at around 5 p.m. He was a short distance away from his home when a masked gunman pulled up on bicycle and shot him in the back when he tried to run. An innocent bystander, Joseline Maximo, was shot in the leg by the spray of bullets. Both of them were rushed to the KHMH, but McDonald succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment 2 hours later.

 Two and a half hours after McDonald passed away, (at around 9:30 p.m.) Parham was walking home from a party at his aunt’s house. His aunt was with him, and he was a block away from his house, but that didn’t matter at all when a red car drove up suddenly. A gunman, who was described as being “dark-skinned with dreadlocks” jumped out of the car and shot him in the back. He died half hour later at the KHMH while undergoing treatment.

 Both families don’t understand what motivated the attacks on the men. They were both described as family men. Parham’s family told the media, however, that he had enemies because he stood up to anyone who tried to take advantage of his family members.
