This article is well-sourced, sticks to the known facts at-hand, and doesn't sensationalize or add the author's personal opinion to the story. The article is made up entirely of one individual's take on the killing, but the context is well reported.

This is very similar to the Travon Martin case where these men saw a black man jogging and just assumed he was doing something wrong just because he was in their neighborhood.
