A North Carolina teenager who was just a month removed from speaking about gun violence during a city council meeting was killed after being shot in the head outside of a house party.
According to the Fayetteville Observer, 19-year-old Ravon Jordan was fatally shot during a gunfight between rival gangs in Fayetteville, N.C. on Sunday morning. At least 70 gunshots were reportedly fired outside of the party, and police are still said to be looking for the suspects.
In May, Jordan passionately shared his anxiety about the string of shootings in the community:
You shouldn't be paying to be killed or murdered in your own house. When you move into a home, you don't expect to die.
