What happens on Facebook apparently ends at the muzzle of a gun.
Michael Stubbs was shot and killed in northwest Omaha on Wednesday morning. Stubb’s uncle, Charles Shrum, told KETV7 that “He’s got five kids that are going to grow up without a father over what sounds like a misunderstanding.”
According to the police, Stubbs was shot once in the abdomen by someone he knew, while outside of his home. Another uncle, Andrew Bachmann, said that he heard “a pop” but by the time he “got to the end of the fire place, there Michael was stumbling through the door.” Stubbs would later die at the hospital.
Kenneth R. Armour., Jr. 31, was arrested during a traffic stop hours after the killing and now faces the charge of first-degree murder.
The family believes that the misunderstanding started on Facebook, where all bad things happen, although they’re unsure what the misunderstanding was about or why it led to the shooting.
Stubbs had a protection order against him; a woman alleges that Stubbs had repeatedly threatened her and her family.
His family is aware of the allegations, but they say the dispute isn’t related to his murder. According to the woman, who had a two-year relationship with Stubbs, he harassed her and her parents, and threatened to “smash her face.” In September, he threatened to “break [her] jaw and end [her] world.”
Stubbs was set to have a hearing on the matter later this month, according to KETV7.
A fund has been set up for the family, and donations can be made at any Wells Fargo location.
Do you think Armour knew “unfriending” was an option? He sounds like a cheery fellow, but this was a rather extreme way to solve a problem best accomplished by blocking and unfriending.
