Authorities have released the name of the teenager shot last week near a gas station in the Jordan neighborhood of north Minneapolis.
Da’vontae Rayvion Wallace, 16, who went by the nickname “Day Day,” was shot around 4 p.m. on Oct. 7 near the intersection of N. Lowry and Logan avenues and died of “multiple gunshot wounds,” according to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office.
A dispute between two groups of people escalated into the shooting near the Full Stop Gas and Food station, police said at the time.
“This is truly a heartbreaking time for me,” the teen’s father, Issaclerome Watson, wrote on a fundraising web page to help cover funeral expenses. “All around bright young man. That’s gone way too soon.”
Police were continuing to investigate the homicide, one of 68 this year in Minneapolis.
