LeDajrick Cox Shot & Killed After Graduation For Protecting Female Friend Who Was Being Harassed (Video)
Homecoming king, prom king, ran track, and the wide receiver on the football team. And it was all taken away with senseless gun violence after shooters opened fire on a car with 18-year-old LeDajrick Cox in it and his friends.
“Irving Police said 18-year-old LeDajrick Cox was out with a group of friends, three guys and one girl, early Sunday morning. Cox had graduated from Carter High School Saturday, just a few hours before the shooting, and wanted to celebrate.
According to Fox 4, authorities said Cox and his pals pulled into the parking lot of a 7-Eleven in Irving around 1:45 a.m. when three men in white Kia Optima started cat-calling Cox’s female friend.
The recent graduate, who was voted most popular and set to play college football, tried to come to the girl’s defense. Dallas News reported that an argument ensued and the group Cox was with decided to leave.
As their car drove away, the suspects in the Kia Optima followed and opened fire on the vehicle.
Cox was hit in the head and his side, and died hours later at Parkland Hospital. The other two males in the car were also struck during the shooting, but survived their injuries.”
