Tuesday evening, hundreds of Rolland “Rocky” Miller’s friends paid tribute to him in front of the family home where he was killed. Last Friday Miller, 44, was shot and killed by an unknown acquaintance in what appears to be a robbery. Although Miller was from the neighborhood, Miller was not active gang member and his shooting had nothing to do with gangs.
The motive appears to be a personal dispute that escalated to a robbery, and there is absolutely no evidence that gang identity play a role in the shooting. Miller was known throughout Southern California by people from all segments of society including Crips, Bloods and Mexicans. He was the co-founder of Hogg Life, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle club, and has been instrumental in several gang intervention organizations including UnityOne, and 2nd Call.
