Elijah Foster

Age 18

Omaha, Nebraska

Dope Boy Gang. One less member.

Dope Boy Gang: That was the name of his rap group. It was a start for the aspiring hip-hop artist. A photograph showed him in a recording studio with a microphone close to his lips.


He was a loving uncle to his young nephew and a “natural leader.” His twin sister remembers his troubled upbringing: “He did the best that he could.”

Elijah Foster, 18, was fatally shot on Feb 5, 2019, in Omaha, Nebraska. Bullets from the scene shattered windows and hit the side of a woman’s home. Foster was found dead at the corner of 47th and Redman Avenue.
