Friends Dispute Buquet’s Portrayal

Friends of Christian Buquet, the Hayden 19YO shot by police after he shot another man Saturday, say he's being portrayed wrongly by media:

“He is not a bad person. He has people out there who loved him, friends and family just like anyone else,” Chris Martinez said. Martinez, who was friends with Buquet for five years, remembers him as a young boy who was nice and loved to draw. Martinez saw Buquet two days before the shooting. “We didn't see it coming. No one did,” he said. Investigators say Buquet, 19, shot 29-year old Frank James in the chest at 11th and Lakeside Saturday. He then randomly started firing his weapon, something his friends have a hard time believing. “Starting shooting randomly … that's not what happened,” Martinez claimed. More here.
