Deandre Ballard, a HS classmate of mine, was shot & killed by a security guard at his apartment complex in Durham last week.
It was several days of worry and agony before ANY of this news was reported to his friends and family.
We need answers. https://t.co/PAZtDUpIuC
The agency this security guard (I repeat: SECURITY GUARD) works for is claiming self-defense.
I can't say I kept in touch with him since HS, but that sure as hell doesn't sound like the Deandre I knew. I'm not the only one that has trouble believing this story. pic.twitter.com/oRQz8xhOZK
Deandre was going to graduate from NC Central University next May. That opportunity was taken from him.
He was also an active member of the university's Bon Vivant Fashion Society. He had so much to offer this world and a lifetime to do it. That opportunity was taken from us. pic.twitter.com/nHRw2ZBIkT
