Musician killed in carjacking after performing at Detroit church on Christmas Eve

Criminal acts always seem a little worse in Detroit. Or maybe they are a lot worse.

From the Detroit Free Press:
On Christmas Eve, Anthony Tolson had finished playing bass guitar at a church service and was driving to see his three kids on Detroit's east side.

Yet Tolson never made it. He was shot and killed by multiple assailants who then stole his SUV that contained his bass and gifts for his kids: William, 7, Aaron, 12, and Amber, 13.

The tragedy has left his close friends struggling to understand how Tolson, 33, who friends say has toured with artists like Ne-Yo, Young Jeezy, Kelis and J. Moss, became the victim of violence.

"It's just a shock, that somebody would do something like this, especially on a night like that," said Tolson’s good friend, D.W. Bass.
Sad and tragic.

From my post at Da Tech Guy:

I walked its streets--the tragedy of Detroit.
