Saint Louis, Missouri
Always prayed to see another day
Things were looking up for him. He had just graduated from high school and attended his senior prom.
He worked at Foot Locker, according to his Facebook page, which featured rap lyrics and posts about prayers and God. Loved ones call him “Mr. Bill.”
The nickname would be etched into his tombstone. On May 18, 2018, Tahōn D. Williams, 18, was shot and killed in St. Louis, Missouri, after police say he had purchased a gun, and the seller returned to retrieve it. He leaves behind a little sister, cousins, and friends who loved him.
