An 18-year-old was turned away from school for not wearing part of the uniform. He was then shot and killed while walking home with a friend and his friend’s mom.
The drive-by happened at 10:30 Wednesday morning in the middle of the street. His friends mother was there and saw the whole thing, and even tried saving the boy’s life.
Doss went to pick up her son and his 18-year-old friend from Excel Academy of South Shore. She says they were sent home for not wearing bowties, which is part of the school uniform.
Doss says she and the boys were about two blocks from school, crossing a street near 75th and Colfax when a black car pulled up and shots rang out.
