DaShawn Keandre Bradford
Playing collegiate baseball was his goal
Raised by his grandparents, he was described as a smart, kind, sensitive, and loyal kid. However, his loyalty was not always a strength — it often meant he followed those he was loyal to.
His coach at Heights High School saw him as a potential leader on the baseball team. Every summer since he was 6, he played on competitive All-Star baseball teams as a pitcher, catcher, and shortstop. “He was the most talented kid that I'd coached," his coach told KAKE News.
DaShawn “Shawnie” Keandre Bradford, 16, was shot in the head after allegedly trying to rob a gas station in Wichita, Kansas with three others on December 28, 2018.
