During a bike ride in Pittsburgh’s Homewood area on Wednesday, a 15-year-old kid was shot and killed as a result of his injuries.
The incident occurred in the 800 block of North Homewood Avenue just after 6 p.m., according to police. According to police, the victim had been shot in the head.
Following his transfer to the hospital, Dayvon Vickers, 15, of Pittsburgh, passed away, according to the medical examiner’s office.
Amber Sloan, who served as his mentor, is devastated.
She expressed herself as follows: “So when I went down to the street and saw the cop working on him, I parked my scooter on the opposite side of the street and walked over to where he was. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing and looked down. I couldn’t believe what I had witnessed.”
Besides riding his bike and selling bottled water throughout town, Vickers enjoyed spending time with his family.
She claimed that his other mentor had been slain, that his friend had been murdered, and that his mother had recently passed away.
“When I was a teenager and on my way to college, I lost contact with my mother. So I understand what it’s like to lose your mother and become disoriented in these streets. We’ve become disoriented and are attempting to locate ourselves. He was attempting to figure out who he was as a young guy “Sloan expressed himself.
As soon as she learned of Vickers’ death, Sloan said she immediately began thinking about how she might best assist White’s mother, Theresa, in dealing with her grief.
I was at a childhood friend’s house with her and her daughter when I received the phone call, and we were trying to figure out how we could best support Teresa, who had just lost another son, Sloan recalled. “We were literally sitting there thinking about how we were going to try to support Teresa,” Sloan said.
