WASHINGTON — The father of one of two murdered Germantown teens railed against the notion that his son’s fatal shooting was in retaliation for a drug-related December robbery Sunday, calling the suggestion a “lie.”
“He is such a sweet person,” Adi Najjar, father of slain 17-year-old Shadi Adi Najjar, told WTOP. “Loving, lovable person. He would never try to harm anybody.”
Najjar said that he and his wife went to great pains to ensure that their son had everything he needed — which is why he doesn’t believe the idea that Shadi would have been involved in a robbery.
