Dylan Hemphill

Age 18

Detroit, Michigan

Live stream between friends gone wrong

He wears a small grin and and blue hoodie in the photo. He was from Detroit's West Side and he enjoyed posting on Instagram.

He and his best friend were like brothers, according to his mother. They thought it would be a fun idea to live stream themselves showing off guns and money.

Dylan Hemphill, 18, was fatally shot in the back of his head minutes before midnight on April 3, 2018, in his friend’s Detroit living room. His best friend accidentally pulled the trigger of his rifle during the video.
