From my Sister Anne
This is David Mc Cormick's brother's child's new husband. David & Jimmy were Langdon & Marguerite's sons, Cornelia Anne their daughter. Langdon was such a nice man--was at State College when I was at St Mary's. He committed suicide --shot himself.
Marguerite's grandaughter, Lauren (Jimmy's daughter) was married in June. Last Sat. night, her husband was shot and killed in a West Nashville shopping center parking lot. He and his brother-in-law were meeting people they had contacted through Craigslist to sell them handguns. I just happened to see that David's wife, Marcie, and Cornelia Anne had posted on Facebook.
I confirmed last night by email with Marcie. She and David were leaving early this morning to go to Nashville for the funeral. His name is John McLean and you can find his obituary online this morning by just Googling his name and TN. Handsome guy. Funeral tomorrow.
Something doesn't add up in this story. If anyone finds more information, please let me know.
The suspects, described only as two black men, fled in a car.
NASHVILLE – A Tennessee man was shot and killed Saturday during a meeting to sell guns to two men who answered an ad on Craigslist.
Joshua McLean, 30, of Nashville, and his brother met the two men at a Nashville shopping center Saturday night, according to a WTVF-TV report.
Joshua McLean's brother told police he heard two gunshots when Joshua got out of his car in the parking lot. Then he found his brother lying between two cars, bleeding. Officials believe Joshua was shot twice in the chest.
The men jumped into a vehicle and drove away. Joshua was taken to Vanderbilt Medical Center, where he later died from his wounds.
Police said Joshua and his brother were planning to sell guns, but they were recovered at the scene. The gun used to kill Joshua was not one of his own.
Officers are working with Craigslist to obtain any information on the people who were taking part in the transaction.
Craigslist.org has a list on its website of items users cannot advertise to sell. The list includes weapons, including "firearms, ammunition, silencers, pellet/BB guns, tear gas or stun guns."
