“He was the father of five amazing kids and was only in town to visit with me and his younger brother Gionni Matthews,” Lawson said. “They killed my brother for three pairs of shoes and a YSL handbag.”
Lawson said she and her brothers were at Matthews’ apartment and that Morgan had gone outside to change his shoes. She said three men targeted Morgan as he opened his trunk and that they shot him after they had already taken several items. In another tragic twist, she noted that their mother died on the same day 15 years ago.
Police did not specify if anything was taken from Morgan. No arrests have been made in the incident.
An investigation is ongoing.
