Died while fixing a flat tire
He was a happy and occasionally silly teenager who liked to crack jokes.
He and a buddy were driving on West Seven Mile Road after leaving a nearby T-shirt embroidery shop. They suddenly had to stop their car. His last words to his father on the phone were, “Give me a second, I got a flat tire.” Seconds later, he and his friend were shot by two men. They were both rushed to the hospital. His buddy survived. He didn’t make it.
Amauri Green, 16, was shot and killed during a drive-by shooting on August 24, 2018, in Detroit, Michigan.
