Michael Paul Adams, 27, was accused of slashing the throat of 17-year-old Elijah Al-Amin at a convenience store in Peoria just before 2 a.m.

Adams claimed it was a music genre that made him feel "unsafe" because he had been attacked in the past by people who listen to rap: specifically, "blacks, Hispanics and Native Americans".

Friends say 17-year-old Elijah Alamin had big plans to own his own business one day.

Al-Amin then ran out of the convenience store to escape his attacker. Al-Amin spoke to him on the phone, teasingly asking him to bring back some cookies or a sandwich, but Elijah said he wanted to see his girlfriend after work. "Adams further stated, people who listen to rap music are a threat to him and the community", the document said. Michael Adams was booked on a first-degree murder charge.

Outcry erupted on social media following the death of Al-Amin.

"You took a helluva kid", he said.

The killing has ignited a national outcry, including comments from a Democratic presidential candidate who is calling for a federal investigation. "I don't understand it".

The killing has sparked outrage nationwide, with people taking to Twitter with the hashtag: #JusticeForElijah.

According to AZ Central, Al-Amin was listening to rap music while parked in his vehicle at a convenience store parking lot in Peoria, Arizona.

USA president lauds his administration's environmental record
Deere had added yesterday (July 8th) that the US President Donald Trump would speak in the event. "Environmental improvement and economic growth has gone hand in hand for decades".

"Another one of our children has been murdered in a heinous and unprovoked way-the DOJ must investigate this hate crime immediately. RIP Elijah. #JusticeForElijah", he tweeted.

Amanda Steele, a spokeswoman for the Maricopa County Attorney's Office, said that state law did not allow for separate hate crimes charges, but that they could be used after conviction to argue for a more severe sentence. "It's not completely off the table", Sheffert said.

In video obtained by KPNX, Adams' attorney Jacie Cotterell argued in court that the attack was "a failing on the part of the Department of Corrections", and said that despite symptoms of mental illness, "multiple prior felonies and a history of potentially unprovoked unsafe behavior", Adams was released into the community without medication or support.

"They released him to the streets with no holdover meds, no way to care for himself", Jacie Cotterell, an attorney who previously represented Adams, told AZ Family.

"My client is a very unfortunate young man". However, being disabled or mentally ill does not make you a white supremacist.

According to Adams' lawyer, he suffers from a mental illness and was recently released from prison for an unrelated but similar crime with no medication.

"Prior to his release, inmate Adams was provided contact information for services in the community such as continuing care, housing, welfare as well as other community resources...."

"The tragic death is bad, and Mr. Adams will have to answer for his alleged actions", Wilder continued.

Adams is being held on a $1 million bond and is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing in court July 15.
