When he was 5 years old, he learned how to fish; ever since, he could talk endlessly about a variety of species.
Pierce Edward Schwartz, 15, was shot by his friend, also 15, on Nov. 8, 2018. The friend then took his own life. Both of the boys were found in one of their mothers’ apartment at The Park at River Oaks, a luxury apartment complex in Houston, Texas.
