Man slain outside tents set up to end violence
A 20-year-old Richmond man was sprayed with gunfire early Friday as he sat in a car across the street from a "tent city" occupied by people campaigning to end gun violence. But residents of the encampment said the killing had only strengthened their resolve.

Travante James was shot multiple times shortly after 4 a.m. across the street from John F. Kennedy Park, home of one of four tent cities that have sprung up recently around Richmond's Iron Triangle and other crime-plagued areas.

The victim was taken by paramedics to Kaiser Medical Center in Richmond and pronounced dead, making him the city's 35th homicide of the year.

Police said Friday they had made no arrests and had no motive in the slaying, which happened nearly two weeks after eight peace tents were pitched on a field at the park. James lived in the area but had not been a visitor to the campsite.

1. Wonder if the motive was to teach that pacifism doesn't pay.
Who knows. Some people are very petty and evil.
