While details are still developing, it’s reported that 20-year-old DeAndre Joshua was shot and killed during the Ferguson riots in the St. Louis suburb Monday. Ferguson, MO made headlines after the August shooting of Michael Brown. With a ‘no indictment’ grand jury decision, chaos ensued, leading massive protests across major cities in America. It appears that he was allegedly shot by a stray bullet while sitting in his Pontiac Grand Prix. With over 150 gunshots reported, and over 25 businesses having been destroyed, Joshua’s car was parked less than a mile from where Michael Brown was fatally gunned down on August 9th.

According to Richard Taylor, a Ferguson resident who lives near the location where Joshua was killed, recalls hearing a group of men outside his home plotting to kill someone:

There was a lot going on last night, but I thought at least someone would show up to arrest these guys.

Brian Joshua, the victim’s family, stated:

He was a good kid, he’s gone to high school, he’s got a job, he’s not into drugs or any of that stuff. I only saw him yesterday morning. He was a smart guy, he spoke cleanly, he was positive.

Police are still investigating the circumstances behind DeAndre Joshua’s death.
