Noah Tremayne Bell

Age 16

University City, Missouri

He was helping his big brother

He was a sophomore football player who won’t get to play anymore. Who knows what his potential could have been?

He was with his brother and another man. The trio conspired to rob a woman’s estranged husband. As they confronted the man in his backyard, they learned the man had a gun.

He ran when shots rang out. Everyone got away unharmed, except him. Police discovered him wounded, lying near the edge of River Des Peres.

Noah Tremayne Bell died from a gunshot wound after an attempted home invasion in University City, Missouri, on November 4, 2018. He was 16 years old.
