Fausto Sosa

Age 18

Boston, Massachusetts

Era un hermano de buen corazón

He was originally from Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic, and spoke Spanish at home. His TV preferences ranged from “SpongeBob” to “The Walking Dead,”  and he listened to Bulin 47 and Nicky Jam. He posted videos of himself freestyling on Instagram.

The Boston Community Leadership Academy student was described as a kind-hearted brother, a great teammate, and an even better person.

Fausto Sosa, 18, was fatally shot on Aug. 22, 2018, down the street from the National Center for Afro-American Artists in Boston, Massachusetts. Que en paz descanse.
