Kenjay Gilmore Brown

Age 14

Allendale, South Carolina

They had just talked about guns

He was just hanging with three of his friends in a backyard on a Saturday afternoon. Then came a “bang,” a sound so loud that it brought a neighbor out to see what was happening. Soon, there were sirens and flashing lights as the authorities came on the scene.

His aunt said she just talked with her nephew, whom they called “Gilmore,” about gun violence. Who knows what life had in store for him?

Kenjay Gilmore Brown died Jan. 20, 2019, after a possible accidental shooting in Allendale, South Carolina. He was 14 years old.
