Seventeen year old Trevon Johnson was shot by a homeowner who came home to check on an alarm at her home. She saw Johnson leaving the home and altercation ensued. During the altercation, Johnson was shot once. He died of his wounds.
“I don’t care if she have her gun license or any of that. That is way beyond the law – way beyond,” said Johnson’s cousin Nautika Harris to local media outlet WFOR.
“You have to look at it from every child’s point of view that was raised in the hood,” she said. “You have to understand… how he going to get his money to have clothes to go to school? You have to look at it from his point-of-view.”
“He was not supposed to die like this. He had a future ahead of him. Trevon had goals… he was a funny guy, very big on education, loved learning.”
“What’s wrong with her,” asked Johnson’s sister Nisha Johnson when discussing the homeowner. “She did not have to shoot him.”
