“He didn’t want to listen, he got his [expletive] shot,” the teen said, according to video of his exchange with reporters. Richardson told police that he felt the driver was intentionally running up the meter.

He is accused of firing two shots into the back of Darbenzio’s head and then fleeing with about $500 from Darbenzio’s pocket.

“I feel my homies die, everybody got to die,” Richardson said.

Additionally, Richardson said he is originally from Newark, NJ and told police he is suspect in a triple homicide there.
