Prosecutors claim slaying fueled by gang argumentAnd the moral of the story is ... don't make Jay Bullock mad!
A gang disagreement sparked the 2007 slaying of a Rocky Creek man, state prosecutors said Tuesday, the opening day of Jeremy Pitts' murder trial.
Pitts, who was 27 at the time, is accused of fatally shooting 21-year-old Matthew Rogers, who was a fellow member of the newly formed Simon City Royals gang, District Attorney Tony Lawrence said.
Rogers was found dead in an upstairs bedroom at an Old Mobile Highway residence about 3 p.m. on April 2, 2007. He had bled out from a gunshot wound to his left shoulder, Lawrence said.
An internal disagreement between Rogers and the gang's leader, Jay Bullock, led Pitts, who was second in command, to shoot and kill Rogers, prosecutors argued.
