Tragedy of the teen killed by CHOP security revealed: Homeless 16-year-old's friend reveals he drove the stolen Jeep into the 'cop-free' zone for safety and then told her on the phone: 'I don't want to die'
The 16-year-old boy who was shot dead by CHOP security in Seattle was homeless and had just carjacked a Jeep when he was told by a friend to drive to the cop-free zone 'for safety', DailyMail.com can reveal.
Antonio Mays Jr died in a hail of bullets in the early hours of Monday morning and his passenger, a 14-year-old, was critically injured after armed security guards fired on their white Jeep Cherokee, which crashed into the barriers of the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) security zone.
Ciara Walker, 25, described the two boys as her 'street brothers' and said Mays Jr and the other teen had been living with her and her husband in a tent at the nearby Cal Anderson Park, located just outside the CHOP zone.
Walker revealed she was on the phone with the boys when they were shot, saying: 'The last thing I heard was a crash and pop pop pop, I’m not sure who said what, but one of them said, '''Ah s**t I’m hit, I don’t wanna die.'' Then the phone went dead.'
Black Trans Woman Merci Mack Shot to Death in Dallas
Merci Mack, a 22-year-old Black transgender woman, was found shot to death Tuesday in Dallas.
A passerby called police and emergency personnel after noticing Mack lying unresponsive in the parking lot of an apartment complex about 6:15 a.m., TV station KXAS reports. Dallas Fire-Rescue workers pronounced her dead at the scene. Neighbors had heard gunshots in the area about 5 a.m.
Dozens of Mack’s friends posted messages of sorrow and remembrance on her Facebook page. “My heart is very heavy, Merci you will be truly missed, I am going miss arguing with you, laughing, singing dancing and mostly watching them fine Men!” one wrote.

Nationwide, Mack’s death is at least the 19th homicide of a trans person this year, with most of the victims being Black or Latinx.

Brayla Stone, Black Trans Teen, Killed in Apparent Hit
Local police in Arkansas are treating the death of a 17-year-old transgender Black woman as a homicide. The body of Brayla Stone was found in a car on a walking path in the Little Rock suburb of Sherwood last Thursday, and a person on social media later claimed he was paid five thousand dollars to kill her. Stone is the eighth trans person violently killed in the last seven days.
“Brayla Stone is the 8th transgender person killed in the last seven days,” David Johns, Executive Director of the National Black Justice Coalition, said in a statement. “Brayla Stone was seventeen years young when someone murdered her because we live in a society where it is not yet explicit that when we say BlackLivesMatter we mean all Black lives, which includes Black trans women and girls.”
