With such street names

When she got to the apartment at about 11 p.m., Brishitue Glass said, there were "a lot of boys there," about 15 of them, many affiliated with the Hit Squad, an area gang. Many were known just by street names, according to Glass and Valerie Robinson, the woman who lived in the apartment and dated the man accused of killing an 18-year-old "for no reason." That night, there were men and boys with such street names as "Red," "Psycho Rick," "Frog," "John-John," "Don P.," "Cannon," "K.K.," and "Mokey."

"We were just sitting there and talking, listening to the radio," Glass said. "We were drinking and playing cards and listening to the music."

Glass said she drove people to get beer, and then, about 45 minutes later, drove them to get more beer. After about another 45 minutes of drinking, Glass said, they "left to go get some green."

"Some what?" asked Dawn Belisel-Skinner, the assistant district attorney.

"Some 'green.'"

"What's that?"

"That's marijuana," Glass said.

The rest of the night, according to the 20-year-old female, was spent smoking marijuana, listening to music, "popping pills" and playing cards.
