Christian Jamir Miller

Age 3

Detroit, Michigan

An unused "Sesame Street Live" ticket

He loved to sing his ABCs, eat pizza and french fries and go to Chuck E. Cheese.

One of his favorite shows was “Sesame Street.” In fact, his godmother was taking him and her own 3-year-old son to see it live at the Fox Theatre.

While they were on their way to the theater, driving down the Southfield Freeway in Detroit, Christian Jamir Miller, 3, was fatally shot on Jan. 24, 2019 by someone who fired into their car. His godmother pulled up to the BP gas station right off the freeway, crying for help.
