A smart young man was killed outside of his home on the 7600 block of South Ada. This young man, a Gregory Ward, was an honors student and he was going to go off for college this fall. Police believe he was the intended target since he was on his own porch and he was not robbed. His sister believe someone was jealous of him. While his grandmother would disagree with that because this smart man had neither a girlfriend, money, or a big mouth. It still wouldn't surprise me that it was his dreams that someone was jealous of. There are those who'll murder to keep someone from leaving them behind.
