UPDATE (10:55 p.m.): WKRG News 5 spoke with the mother, Shernita Mauldin, who identified her son, Howard Anderson, 27, as the victim of the shooting Tuesday night.

“People are evil,” said Mauldin. “People are very evil. This is a childhood friend. I tell him you don’t have friends. You can’t trust nobody.”

She says Anderson is her only son.

“It’s sad,” said Mauldin. “And when it hit you close to my home, it’s sad. My son didn’t deserve it. All he trying to is work and take care of his kids and for this man come shoot my child like that?!”
