KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As Robert West flipped though photo albums, he remembered the good times when West said his friend and former roommate, Mohammed Whitaker, looked happy.
“To me, you know, I’m his family, the closest thing he has here,” West said.
The smiling picture, West said, is a far cry from the look he saw on Whitaker’s face as police arrested him Thursday night outside his home.
“To me he looked, I don’t know, looked bewildered. I don’t know what to say, he just did not look like the Mohammed I know. He looked differed. He looked odd,” said West.
What’s even more odd according to West is that the man who he lived with for the past year, and someone he loved like a nephew, is now charged as the shooter causing terror in “The Triangle.”
