Wright’s mother, Simone Brooks, spoke about the tragedy to the New York Post on Sunday, January 22. She demanded justice from the “little punks” who were responsible for the death of her son. “I want justice for him. These days, they all want to take out weapons. They don’t want to fight because they’re just little punks. We want justice for my son Nyheem because he didn’t deserve it and we’re not okay,” she said.

Brooks said Wright’s twin, Raheem, told him what happened. “They were fighting with the children, and he said there were six of them. One of them pulled out a knife,” she said, adding that Raheem “stayed with his twin brother the whole time.” “I was on the phone with him … and when the ambulance came, they kept saying, ‘He’s losing a lot of blood, he’s losing a lot of blood!'” she said.

Stating that a major artery was severed in the attack, Brooks said: “There was nothing anybody could have done because the blood just drained away. The platelets, the plasma, just didn’t clot. And after a while, they were monitoring her blood pressure, and it just goes so low, and they said no one can live like this, and her heart is going to stop,” adding, “They told me, ‘Call your family, you can bring them all here.'”

According to Brooks, he was not involved in any gangs and he was a bright student in his class and everyone liked him. The mother of nine said: “Raheem, he is trying to be strong for me. But I’m looking at his Snapchat posts and he’s like, ‘I’m not okay.’ It’s like, ‘I’ll never be okay.'”Read More….
