James Patrick Stuhlman was out walking his dog when three teens playing basketball decided to rob him. 15-year-old Brandon Smith, Tyfine Hamilton and another unnamed 14-year-old teen thought it would be fun to rob someone at random. They had their eye on another individual but changed their mind when they saw Stuhlman because he seemed more vulnerable. Stuhlman was out walking his dog at the time when the boys came over and threatened him.
Captain James Clark said that Stuhlman begged for his life, but shooter Tyfine Hamilton gunned him down in cold blood without hesitation. Smith and the 14-year-old are currently in custody while Hamilton is still at large. He is considered armed and dangerous. A $20,000 reward is offered to anyone who knows Hamilton’s whereabouts.
Thankfully, Stuhlman, who usually walked with his daughter told her to stay home that night because it was getting too late for her to be walking the streets. His decision probably saved her life.
