West Seattle memorial pays tribute to local man shot to death on Queen Anne

A reader asked us this afternoon about the candles, flowers, and balloons at 24th SW/SW Kenyon. We’ve learned that they are in memory of 21-year-old Trevon McKoy, identified by the King County Medical Examiner this afternoon as the man shot and killed on lower Queen Anne Hill early Sunday. A community member who asked for anonymity tells WSB that the memorial is near where Mr. McKoy lived with his grandmother, just blocks from Denny International Middle School, which he attended before going to high school outside West Seattle, at Franklin HS; mourners gathered at the corner for a vigil last night. Citywide-media reports say McKoy had a rising rap career as JuiceTheGod, profiled last summer by Seattle Weekly, which also noted his college-basketball career. No arrest reported so far.

      I know Doree. All these kids that once came to school to learn and make friends and go through your lunch line… Sorry for your loss and for the loss of these families and community.

    Terrible. Practically outside of Key Arena and this poor guy is shot in the head? 

    This kind of thing happens nightly in Chicago, but it angers me this kind of wanton violence is happening in our fine city. Track down these thugs and lock them up for good.

    I didn’t even know that was him though.

    My deepest condolences to Trevon’s family and friends.

    RIP Trevon

    I remember Trevon as an energetic bright student at Gatewood Elementary. What an incredible loss of a talented, smart, beautiful young man. Prayers for his loved ones amidst this tragedy.

Sorry, comment time is over.
