LaMadre TeCory Harris

Age 16

North Las Vegas, Nevada

Will never put together another outfit

He was the “cut-up jean king,” known for altering denim pants to make new clothes.

To his mother he was “the goofball of the family,” a boy who loved to dance and make others laugh. “Man Man,” as his childhood friends knew him, spent his junior year at Legacy High School playing basketball, his favorite sport.

On Nov. 13, 2018, LaMadre TeCory Harris, 16, walked with his sister to Bob’s Market in North Las Vegas, Nevada, for an afterschool snack. Ten minutes later, he was shot twice at close range. After hours in surgery, he died from his wounds at University Medical Center.
