Terrell Fountain was an 18-year old from Queens, NY who was on his way to college. He dreamed of being a teacher and found himself murdered by a random assailant on Friday night. The man opened fire suddenly as Fountain and his friends were walking home from a party.
All four teens were taken to Jamaica Hospital, where Fountain was later pronounced dead by hospital officials. The gunman fled from the scene.
“You want to retaliate, but you know that is wrong, these senseless killings have to stop,” said Fountain’s aunt, Shanell Cherry-Mitchell.
