Aneas David King

Age 16

Las Vegas, Nevada

Six siblings, raised by his grandmother

The sophomore at Cheyenne High School was approaching his 17th birthday. He grew up with his grandmother and six siblings. He was his older sister’s rock and provided everyone with countless moments of joy.

On Wednesday, he left his grandmother’s house with his friend. Gunshots rang out next. Not too far from his house, his grandmother, the same one who raised him, found him.

Aneas David King, 16, was shot and killed on Coleman Street and San Miguel Avenue in North Las Vegas, Nevada around 5 p.m. on Jan. 9, 2019 during a drug deal, police say.
