Payton Robert Antonio Velarde
Hanahan, South Carolina
Berkeley boy with the rose tattoo
The boy with loose curls and a tattoo of three roses across his forearm was the kind of person you could tell everything to. He stood by his friends even when they were facing dire circumstances, and they did the same for him.
On April 27, 2018, at 1:17 a.m. Payton Robert Antonio Velarde, 15, was gunned down in the middle of Belvedere and Sedgefield drives in Hanahan, South Carolina.
