This is Desiree Davis. She was shot and killed in Oakland, California in broad daylight at a BBQ on Labor Day. She was 17. She is also the niece of one of my co-workers. Police have no idea who killer her or why. Sadly, she is on record as the 77th homicide in Oakland in 2009. Desiree was also a victim of Hurricane Katrina, where her and her family lost their home to the natural disaster. Its always hard when some you know is faced with a tragedy. Even though I didn't know this person, it still seems unreal that something like this can happen.
