Daquavoan Lavar Brown
Charlotte, North Carolina
To know him, to love him
His dreadlocks were neatly parted, except for one over his face.
On Oct. 10, 2018, Daquavoan Lavar Brown was shot at a Motel 6 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Charlotte-Mecklenberg medical examiner’s office ruled the shooting accidental; a teen “friend or acquaintance” is believed to have shot him. At a Nov. 3 march against gun violence, his mother said: “End the violence, put the guns down.”
