v.— «Members of the community were mystified by the apparent randomness of the shooting—the first such incident in more than 20 years. Although Stahl said during testimony that it was learned from an interview with a man present during the shooting that Bradford later said he shot Stevens because the victim tried to “carry” him, a more specific motive remained unclear. To “carry” someone is a euphemism for disrespecting another person.» —“Shooting victim may have argued with suspect” by Kevin Litten in University of Maryland Diamondback (College Park, Md.) Aug. 31, 2005.
