Wilson, North Carolina
Hardworking father, planning for the future
It was summertime. He had gotten off work at his new job at 4 p.m., then he ate dinner with his family and caught up with his mother on their porch.
At 16, he was looking forward; he wanted to provide for his 1-year-old daughter, Melody, and had plans to join the military.
At 9:30 p.m. on July 20, 2018, police responded to a report of a robbery at a Speedway convenience store on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Wilson, North Carolina. They found Luis Flores-Bravo suffering from a gunshot wound. He died at the scene.
