[Calvin loved birthdays, it was a no real secret, he loved anything that celebrated someone he loved be it friend or otherwise, and Delilah was one of the best friends Calvin had, she indulged him in his dorkiness, and even though they didn’t have deep meaningful conversations she was still someone he considered himself close to. He’d gotten her a gift of course, it was nothing major but something he was sure she’d like, but what he was really looking forward to was the food crawl. Delilah was a lot like Cal in a few ways, and one of them was enjoying free food. He waited outside of his car for= Delilah to meet up with him and when she did turn up and was close enough he threw up the two fistfuls of confetti he had in his hands] Happy birthday, Donna. [He opened his car door and took out the crown he had sitting on the seat and put it on her head] Ok now you’re birthday ready. Hop in, I hope you’re hungry
Tyre was shot and killed by Columbus Police Officer Bryan Mason last Wednesday, September 14, 2016. Officers alleged they saw three individuals matching the description from a reported robbery and followed them into an alley. Although the version of events has yet to be confirmed by independent witnesses, the officers shot 13-year-old Tyre after he allegedly “reached for a gun.” He was pronounced dead at Nationwide Children’s Hospital at 8:22pm.
Tyre’s family was denied the opportunity to see Tyre at the hospital on the night of his death. The Franklin County Coroner’s Office has since completed its autopsy, but has told the family that those results will not be available for about six to eight weeks.
In search of answers, the family retained Francisco J. Diaz, MD, FCAP, who serves as a practicing medical examiner in the County of Wayne, Michigan, as a Consultant Forensic Pathologist. Dr. Diaz examined Tyre’s body in Columbus, Ohio on September 18, 2016 . Dr. Diaz was asked to evaluate the number, the physical characteristics and the location of any gunshot wounds Tyre suffered in his death.
Dr. Diaz determined that Tyre King suffered three gunshot wounds with entrance paths on the left side of his body, any of which could be determined to have been the cause of death. Tyre suffered a gunshot wound of entrance on the left temple that passed left to right and slightly downward and exited through the right temple. The entrance wound was above the left ear and the exit wound was in front of the right ear. Tyre also suffered a gunshot wound to the left collarbone area. Lastly, he suffered a gunshot wound to the left flank. There is an exit wound on the right flank.
Dr. Diaz notes: “Based on the location and the direction of the wound paths it is more likely than not that Tyre King was in the process of running away from the shooter or shooters when he suffered all three gunshot wounds.“ Dr. Diaz describes Tyre as a "small-framed adolescent boy, standing 5’0” and weighing less than 100 lbs.”
