Shemar Coleman, owner of Seafood-Rama shot and killed in Plainfield
The owner of a Plainfield seafood restaurant was shot and killed Thursday.
The Union County Prosecutor's Office says Shemar Coleman, was found shot multiple times while working at the Seafood-Rama restaurant that he owned on the 1,000 block of East Second Street. The restaurant was opened at the time of the shooting.
Coleman's family say that he did not deserve to be gunned down.
"He was a good guy, for all that he did for the community," says Coleman's sister Sakisha Coleman.
This was the second deadly shooting in Plainfield this week, bringing the total number of homicides for 2016 to 12 so far. Manuel Berrios, 18, was shot and killed Monday on East Third Street.
A motive for Coleman's murder was not immediately known.
"The violence has to stop though because this makes no kind of sense. These kids are killing each other for nothing," says Will Johnson, the father of Coleman's fiancée.
The Union County Prosecutor's Office did not release a description of a suspect.
