    When the article states “Hampton would not cooperate with officers in giving information,” does that mean he exercised his Fifth Amendment rights? Be honest now.

    They should check on the welfare of every resident over there & make sure nobody was killed in their apartment. I’d hate to find out that the guy killed someone & was only injured in the leg while a potential victim lays dead & undiscovered because the guy chose to plead the 5th.
