“You know when your children live out on their own and pay their own bills and they have a good job, it just don’t cross your mind that they would be doing anything to get themselves into trouble,” she explained.

“But we’ve been told that the detectives think that marijuana was being dealed and my son was meeting there and either they tried robbing or did rob him, but he was shot.”

She shared that while Randon was struggling to deal with the death of his father, he was seemingly “doing so good.”
