He had enrolled in a Georgia college, preparing to become an electrician, just like his uncles. But first, he decided to take a break.

To help keep his head clear, he ran just about every day. On Feb. 23, 2020, he was shot during his run by a father and son who told police they believed he was responsible for break-ins in their neighborhood — a Black man, killed by two white men.
