Herring and Joseph have have a baby by the same woman. Herring and Joseph had a history of altercations in the past over their this woman, Keisha. It’s always sad to see a loss in someone’s life. Herring was a brother, son, grandson, cousin, friend, and most of all, a father to two beautiful children. Herring’s mother arrived at the scene screaming for her child. He was not able to respond. Herring passed away and Joseph was released from custody that Monday night, according to the police. Crowds told the couple to run so Keisha did, but not Joseph.
