A mother is shocked because her 19-year-old son is killed 19-year-old son while talking to him on a video call.
Teenager Jadun Byrd was found shot in a parking lot. He was immediately taken to hospital but did not survive. Leslie Byrd’s mother says she was on video with him when the incident happened.
She seemed to hear boys say “That boy was shot”. Her son was hanged by mistake because she says he had not had any conflict with anyone. They just shot him and left.
Byrd works for Urban League and Better Family Life and says the poor son was waiting to follow in his mother’s footsteps. He wanted to help others. He had studied engineering.
The mother wanted to share a message with the other parents saying “GAIN CONTROL AND LOVE YOUR CHILDREN UNCONDITIONALLY. ALLOW THEM TO BE WHO THEY NEED TO BE WITH JUST THE APPROPRIATE GUIDANCE, ”
Police say anyone with information about the person who was shot should call the Homicide Division or Crimestoppers at 866-371-TIPS while maintaining anonymity.
