There was a murder in Unitedville on Friday October 10th.
Kevin Andrew Taylor Jr was stabbed twice; once to the heart and once to the back.
According to eye witnesses, Andrew Taylor and two other men were socializing outside a shop owned by Thomas Mendoza, when the three of them had a brief exchange of words. One of those men left and went to another group of guys in the neighboring yard. They called for Kevin to come over and witnesses said he went over running and soon after that he came back walking slowly saying he got stabbed in his heart. He fell between the two yards and people from the shop went over and took him to the hospital.
