Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

He always put his family first

He was baptized at the age of 11 at the Greater First Deliverance Temple. He was homeschooled and on track to graduate in the upcoming school year.

Born and raised in Oklahoma City, he learned from his grandmother to protect his family and be a good role model for others. He “had a heart of gold and always helped when needed.”

Traviontie Davion Johnson, 18, was shot and killed in Oklahoma City on August 24, 2018. He was outside of an under-21 party at a nightclub when he got into an altercation with another teen.
