Patrick Wayne Kemp, 18, is being accused of luring James Thotho to a park, and shooting him in the bathroom, then stealing his car and credit cards.
James, 37, was allegedly meeting the suspect after the two had communicated on Facebook.
In what is believed to be a defense tactic, Patrick, the suspect is now claiming that James made sexual advance towards him, hence the reason he lost it and shot him.
Police believe that James is not Patrick’s first victim.
The incident happened on May 5th. James unfortunately succumbed to his injuries two days ago.
At this point, whatever happened between the two, a life has been lost and it is only right to respect James’ family.
