Last time I saw him was at a child's birthday party. His mother is a wonderful, generous, caring person and a friend of mine. Great family. May he rest in peace. Please pray for his family.

This young man was raised by a mother with the kindest and most pure heart. I’m heartbroken for her.

I doubt it will be a hot summer isnt this the first male even killed by gun this year? The police have taken out all the shooters with how low gun violence is over the last 18 months theres no way it gets to worrying levels. I predict Boston ends the year with 27 homicides. What other cities get in a month….
