GameStop murderer pleads guilty

June 17, 2008

We first reported on the murder in front of GameStop at Southern Shopping Center on December 31, 2007 and again on January 3, 2008.  Now the Virginian-Pilot reports that the murderer, Kristen Lavon Steen, has plead guilty to second degree murder and to the use of a firearm in commission of a felony.  The article implies that the murder may have been gang related.

A prosecutor’s summary of evidence says that Matthews and a girl were approached by Steen and another male in the shopping center.

“What’s cracking?” Steen asked Matthews.

“What’s popping?” he replied.

Steen then shot him, the summary states.

The greetings are used, though not exclusively, by members of rival Crips and Bloods street gangs, the summary says.
