Age 18

Pine Bluff, Arkansas

He had dreams with childhood friend

“Remember we was 5 we said we was gonna get a big house together,” Bryant Jordan reminisced in a Facebook post. “I said ima back all my cars in and you said you was gonna pull right in.”

People knew “Little Tony” as a “very respectful” person. The teen liked to spend time playing video games, talking on the phone or being with family.  

Tony La’Vonte White, 18, of Pine Bluff, Arkansas, attended Pine Bluff High School. He was fatally shot at an apartment complex and died at Jefferson Regional Medical Center the evening of Jan. 19, 2019.
