Quincy Reese jr Wiki – Quincy Reese jr biography

A star basketball player was shot over the weekend while attending a party with some teammates in South Los Angeles. Quincy Reese Jr., 16, gathered with some of his Crenshaw High School teammates Saturday night for a birthday party at 77 Lounge, a local nightclub, before he was fatally shot.

It’s unclear what led to the shooting, but it has been suggested that the organizers of the high school party were charging a cover to get in and that the teenager was walking away when he was shot dead, with his cousin Eric Johnson telling ABC 7 how the armed men ‘chased him like a dog and shot him in the head’.

Police were notified of the shooting around 11:45 p.m. m., and when officers arrived at the scene they found Reese dead on the sidewalk in front of several houses, according to KTLA. Authorities have not released a description of the suspects. Recounting the fateful night to FOX Los Angeles, a friend named Chris described how the gunmen went on a rampage.

“I was right next to him,” he said. “I told him, ‘Brother, if they start shooting, go west and fight on 74.’ Chris said the gunman was not aiming at Reese and was “just trigger happy” when they started shooting from a passing car. But Johnson said: “They attacked him and chased him like a dog and shot him in the head.”

It’s unclear what led to the shooting, but Reese’s father, Quincy Reese Sr., told CBS News that he was comfortable having his son attend the party because he knew many of the other guests. “I feel like my world has been torn apart,” the grieving father said. “I felt comfortable with the people that I know will protect him.” Reese Sr. and other family and friends described the 16-year-old as having a bright future.


“He had an outstanding personality and [his] grades on him were A-1,” Reese said at a vigil for his slain son Sunday. “He already did what he was supposed to do: make sure grades came first.” Reese Jr was set to captain his high school senior team next year and planned to play basketball in college.

The teen also played baseball in his spare time and planned to try out for the high school football team while maintaining his 3.4 GPA in school, according to the Los Angeles Times. He was already being recruited by 58 different colleges, his father said, and was nicknamed “Batman” for his array of talents on the court.

‘This boy was a promising student athlete; the world was his oyster,’ added Reese’s friend Derrick Cooper. ‘He had everything to look forward to and a coward takes his life… who does that?’ Friends and family are now demanding justice for the murdered teen. “Go ahead, you know who did it, you know what happened,” Johnson said. ‘Open your mouth, open your mouth.’Read More……..
