Los campos deli needs to be looked at very closely even though the shooting didnt appear their but my son Michael was there all the time and yes I will admit that he was doing things there for wrong reasons. This place turned around and totally disrepected my son when people where trying to place flowers and candles. And I will put this out there too, he ran drugs for them and other things and I will have to guess the gun most likely came from their to due to someone from there owing my son some money for DRUGS. My son regardless of what he did was an awesome person very caring and giving. Just choose to not do so right. I am sure after this posting I would be judged about my son but you will all be wrong for judging. I never approved of his life style however he was a grown man that made his own choices and we are all accountable for our own mistakes.

I am very sorry for your loss, Mrs. Bolt. I can't imagine how painful it is. Thank you for sharing with us and reminding us there are real people behind the headlines. I hope your comments remind us all how we can help by letting the authorities know we expect more.

i know this "accidential" shooting is still under investigation. but i want to keep reminding everyone there that there needs to be a change in your communtiy. I do not live there but I have years ago, and it was starting to go down hill back then due to all the gang members and ilegal imigrants living there and taking over like roaches, my son was NOT in a gang but he did hang out with many MS13s, Latin Kings, etc. MS 13s are the main ones that are tearing that neighbor hood down and 70% dont belong there.It appears the MS 13 controls the LOS CAMPOS DELI. The police are very aware of this but yet nothing can be done. I really wish someone would close down that deli among the other little bars and and delis along NY AVE and Depot road. There is some much money in Huntington but yet no one wants to do anything. Sounds like you might have some corrupted people in office their or maybe the gangs are paying them off??? who knows. All I know is my son is dead and I cant blame anyone for it, but I do blame Huntington for not take a stand on cleaning up that area.
