The victim’s sister told KWCH, “My brother was a good man who didn’t deserve to be chased down and killed.”

“I’m just hoping they get him justice because he didn’t deserve to die like that. Or die at all,” she continued, adding, “It was a savage and unnecessary attack.”

WHSV reported that a witness claimed Gale allegedly used racial slurs before the deadly attack and police are investigating the murder as a possible hate crime.
