This is absolutely tragic.
Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice took to social media over the weekend and shared the heartbreaking news that his 3-year-old cousin, Raydn, who had been fighting for his life after taking a gunshot to the head, ultimately lost his life because of it.
“I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and continued support throughout the past few days not even knowing what was going on with my little cousin raydn! After long awaited hours and tests and family coming from all over to be with us. After a battle with a gunshot wound to the head raydn is now pronounced brain dead. I know god has a plan and he works in mysterious ways but still gets all the glory! Life is too short! I remember when he was born three years ago and I was the only relative there outside of immediate family! My little man fought so hard. I wish I could take your place and be the one and not you. You will be missed buddy! I love you so much. Watch over me and I’ll see you soon.”
It was just on June 22nd when Guice took to Twitter and asked for people to pray for Raydn.
Guice would soon change his profile picture to Raydn wearing his uncle’s No. 29 Redskins jersey.
