    NY - Medina Knowles, 17, fatally shot, Schenectady, 15 Sept 2016 *Arrest*

    Albany Times Union:

    Teen mother slain Schenectady, leaves child, 2

    Keya Bibbs and her husband, DeShun Lewis, were in bed when they heard two gunshots, followed by wailing Thursday night.

    "I heard her say, 'Mommy! Mommy!' Then her mother started screaming," Bibbs said. Amid her cries, the mother screamed, "He killed my daughter!" Lewis said.

    In the second-story apartment next door, 17-year-old Medina Knowles died from a gunshot to the head.

    Schenectady police make arrest in fatal shooting; murder charge for 19-year-old ReaQwan U. Stover

    ReaQwan Stover had only recently started dating Medina Knowles, so police do not believe he was the father of Knowles' son.

    Neighbors say that part of Schenectady Street has a reputation for violence, and the sound of gunshots is not uncommon. A little more than a year ago, in July of 2015, another teen, 18-year-old Kusaan Tolliver, was shot and died in the street on the same block.

    A memorial to Tolliver made up of bottles of cognac and prayer candles still remains on the sidewalk just three doors down from the apartment where Knowles lived. Tolliver's death came just four days after another man was shot, but survived, on that same block as well.

    This guy was screaming out for help two years ago,vand nobody listened. Now he's killed somebody, so counseling will probably be mandatory. Too little, too late. That seems to be the court system's only defense.
    Love and prayers to Medina's family and friends. With each passing day, may you be blessed with love, sympathy, hope and sunshine in your hearts.
