North Carolina Teen Fatally Shot Weeks After Protesting Gun Violence

Ravon Jordan, 19, was killed outside a house party in Fayetteville, North Carolina early Sunday morning. Just last month, he spoke out against gun violence at a city council meeting, pressuring officials to close the Cambridge Arms Apartments after four murders occurred there.

The Fayetteville Observer reports that Jordan was killed "after he was shot in the head during a gunfight between two rival gangs" outside the house party. According to The New York Daily News, police are still looking for the gang members who fired at least 70 shots outside the party.
