Kendrick D. Davis

Age 15

Macon, Georgia

Not quite clear on his dreams

“Bam” is what family and friends called him, after “Bam Bam,” the cartoon character from The Flintstones, because he was “so strong.”

He loved to play basketball and grew up in a middle-class neighborhood with a single mother. In an interview, neighbor Vanessa Middlebrooks wrote that “Bam” had a gentle side, but was also a rebel without cause. Like many teenagers, he was “not quite clear on his dreams,” she said.

At 11 p.m. on the night before Halloween, Kendrick D. Davis, 16, was found at the corner of Warpath and Manson roads in Macon, Georgia, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He died early the next morning.
