Alex graduated as the best in his department from the University of Birmingham, with a First Class Honours and was set to begin with his Master’s Degree when the unfortunate incident struck.
Earlier that day, Alex’s best friend, Jake, came over to pay him a surprise visit and after a few hours of catching up, they decided to go out for a drink at a bar close by. Alex’s neighbourhood was a quiet one and crime had never been committed in the area.
Before they left the house, Alex had admired the new shirt Jake was putting on and asked if Jake could sell it to him for a token or better still exchange for one of his. Jake agreed to the deal and they both exchanged shirts.
While at the bar, they had a couple of drinks and talked a lot about their collage days and it was all fun for the duo but few hours into their conversation the police siren was heard from a distance and Jake being very cleaver, excused himself to make use of the rest room and Alex unsuspectingly permitted him.
Put your hands behind your head; The SWAT team leader screamed.
But Alex, not knowing what was going on and in shock, tried to take his cell phone from his pocket to call his mum, and “boom’’, a shot to his chest from a sniper.
Jake was involved in a drug deal gone wrong the previous night and had murdered a man in cold blood. The police came looking for him but thought they had him when they saw Alex with Jake’s shirt. The police realised they had shot the wrong person but by then, Jake was already long gone from the scene.
