The 23 year veteran law enforcement officer had seen much violence over the years but, for some reason, that particular shooting death struck a chord. McKinney, 29, had been lured to a home in the Huffman area by a 15 year old girl to be robbed. It ended in his death. Rucker was one of many officers working that scene.
"I was thinking, Lord, let it be in the arm, or the leg, but don't let my child die,'' Rucker said. "And then I was hoping even if it came to that, can I get there to talk to him, to say I love you, would I be able to say goodbye? "
Rucker made it to the scene, but was she was too late. "It makes me so angry because Kennis didn't bother anybody,'' she said. "He was always happy, always hugging Black High Top Converse Womens 7

More importantly, she said, Kennis knew to steer clear of Hall. "Even before he got involved with her, he always avoided him because he was always into something,'' she said.

Her mother told her that 30 year old Kennis Rucker, Rucker's only son, had been shot and that she was on her way to see if it was true. Kennis had been staying with his grandmother in Docena since he and his wife had separated more than a year ago.
"He shot my son with his child in his hands,'' Rucker said. "He didn't care about Kennis, He didn't care about his daughter. That's going to be traumatic for her. Everybody loses."
