Just two months ago, Darrius Deveal Frazier, 25-years-old was acquitted in January of capital murder in the 2019 slaying of the brother of an NFL football player.

According to AL.com, a Jefferson County jury, after two days of deliberation, decided Frazier fired in self-defense when he killed 27-year-old Gjamal Antonio Rodriguez and wounded Rodriguez’s girlfriend, Dedria Johnson, more than two years ago. Rodriguez was the brother of NFL lineman Mario Addison who played at Troy University and then for the Carolina Panthers. He now plays for the Buffalo Bills.


The shooting reportedly happened around 6:30 pm. Frazier arrived at the hospital and was transferred immediately to St. Vincent’s where he died at 9:23 pm.

Addison’s brother’s case was wild. According to documents, Rodriguez shot the house of Frazier six times and Frazier returned fire in a prior incident. On the day of the killing, Rodriguez was parked outside the house of Frazier and that is when Frazier ran to the trunk of his car, pulled out a rifle, and shot Rodriguez and his car 16 times, hitting Rodriguez 8 times killing him. 

Now both men are dead. How does this solve anything?
