Anthony Grant

Age 17

Baltimore, Maryland

Mom wasn’t able to save him

His mother worked for Safe Streets, hiring people with criminal histories to prevent shootings in the area. As a result, he was probably aware of the city’s status as one of America’s deadliest.

The driven student planned on attending Baltimore City Community College. He and his nephew were inseparable: The two wrote rap songs about life in the city and also played basketball together, playing on the same recreational team over the summer.

On Dec. 2, 2018, Anthony Grant, 17, was fatally shot in Southwest Baltimore, Maryland. He was one of four homicide victims in two days.
