Popular athlete killed at Halloween party

PRINCE GEORGE'S CO., MD (WUSA9) - Brian Davis was one of two teens shot dead in Prince George's County Sunday. The 18-year old was a star athlete at Roosevelt Senior High School in NW DC.

"He just took his senior picture and I look at that often. He was graduating in June and it's going to be very difficult for us. We will miss him greatly," said Brian's aunt Velvet Snow. 

Fourteen-year-old Todd Webb was also murdered after that party. He was a Freshman at Suitland High School.

In all, police said six people were shot outside the Regency Lane apartments in Capitol Heights.

Brian's family said a Halloween party ended in gunfire and Brian was at the wrong place at the wrong time.

"I will miss him tremendously," said Brian's father Earl Davis. 

"My heart is real heavy right now. He always told me a good joke to keep me smiling when I was down," said Brian's grandfather Ervin Goodall. 

Four victims did survive the shooting. Three of them are doing better. One person remains in the hospital with life threatening injuries.

Brian's family is holding a vigil to remember his life. It will take place Wednesday at the Parkview recreation center at 7 p.m. A GoFundMe page has been set up in his honor to help pay for funeral expenses.
