Kanye West was sincerely touched by the news of a Chicago security officer killed by police officers after overpowering an armed man. Kanye is working hard to help his family.
Kanye West learned of the story of Yemelo Roberson – whom the police the shot after having been able to overpower a drunk man with a gun – and wanted to do everything in his power to ease the load on the family. West donated $ 150,000 to the deceased family on Friday. The initial GoFundMe account for Roberson’s family was $ 10,000.
Roberson was doing his job as a security man at Manny’s Blue Room Bar at about 4 am on Sunday when several drunk customers were asked to leave the bar. One of these clients soon returned to the bar with gun and opened fire.
According to reports, Roberson allegedly fired, stopped the killer and kept him under threat of a revolver until the police arrived. When the cop got to the scene, Roberson was shot and killed.
Kanye spent a lot of time in Chicago in recent months.
As far as Roberson is concerned, reports say that he was doing more shift at the bar to get additional cash to take care of his son need during Christmas.
His murder is still being investigated.
