A 20-year-old father was shot in Kentucky just hours after he had visited his two newborn twins. He is on life support but is not expected to survive, his family said, according to reports.
Police said he was the victim of a random shooting, the outlet reported.
Garvin had just witnessed the birth of his two babies earlier that day at University Hospital. But after he left and was walking between Roseland and Clay streets, he was hit by multiple shots from behind. His body and his head were hit, according to multiple reports.
Police have charged three teens between 14 and 17 years old in relation to the incident, according to WHAS11.
"He always left a memorable impression on you every time you were around him. He was one of the hardest working young man you would ever meet and had just landed a job at GE. Tyrese would always make sure others were taken care of before he took care of himself," the message continued.
"He was selfless, respectful, honest, and would look you in the eye with a firm handshake while calling you ma'am or sir. Tyrese was taken from us way too soon, as he was a victim of the ongoing gun and gang violence surrounding the Louisville area."
WHAS11 reported that within just three days, at least four people have died and five more people were injured in shootings in Louisville, Garvin among them.
“It has to stop,” McKinley said.
“We don’t want your car or your gun to be the next tool used in a homicide or a shooting,” she added. “I do not want to have to notify another parent of the murder of their son or their daughter."
According to WHAS11, police are advising residents of Louisville to lock their vehicles, secure their weapons, and be aware of their surroundings. Parents should also be aware of their children's activities on social media, especially taking note of any messages regarding guns, gangs, drugs, and any threats.
