"Very heartwarming:" Peace garden dedicated to 16-year-old shooting victim Emani Robinson

“Very heartwarming: “ Peace garden dedicated to 16-year-old shooting victim Emani Robinson

NEXT:

They did not take down a memorial to a local shooting victim, instead, it was replaced with something beautiful and growing.

Family and friends helped installed a peace garden at 39th and Center in memory of 16-year-old Emani Robinson. 

He was shot and killed during a fight last month at a convenience store. Police say Robinson was an innocent bystander.

One of the organizers of tonight's event says memorials to crime victims, with their balloons and other mementos, can get faded and worn after a while. 

"That's often an issue for residents in the community and it's just saddening to see when you're driving through the city. So instead, I replaced the memorials with flowers. And then that respects the family and the community," said Camille Mays.

"This is very heartwarming and very overwhelming and I myself am loving it right now," said Emani's mother Latosha Davis.

Two men have been charged in the shooting death of Emani Robinson.
