Warren homicide victim told dad he was killed in retaliation for Walker’s death


Richard Rollison III, 55, of Warren says his son, Richard Rollison IV, 24, told him and Warren police that the man who shot him six times early Saturday was doing in it in retaliation for the death of Taemarr Walker a week ago.

His son named the person who shot him at the Sunoco gas station at 805 W. Market St. early Saturday, but the elder Rollison declined to publicly name the person.

Walker, 24, died after being shot by a Warren police officer on Risher Road Southwest at 1:50 a.m. Oct. 19. Police said Patrolman Mike Krafcik was attending to an abandoned car in the ditch when Walker’s car came east on Risher and went in the opposite ditch.

Rollison III and others were conducting a vigil for the victim at Rollison’s home in Warren tonight.

Is this article poorly written or am I missing something? Why was Rollison shot in retaliation to Walkers death, when the police are the ones who shot walker. Someone explain.

Because tangling with the police is deadly. An easy target was chosen to get back at the society that supports the police.

Yeah, that doesn't make sense. He didn't have anything to do with the police shooting Walker. It wasn't like he snitched on him that led to him being shot. STILL CONFUSED!
