Prior to the Ceremony, >News 4 spoke to Trayvon’s grandmother, Colene Garcia. ‘It's been heartbreaking, devastating. We couldn't believe someone would want to do that to him because of the child he was. He was so humble and nice and sweet. I don't understand why a 12-year-old would have a gun. I helped raised my grandson and we didn't raise him around guns. We wouldn't even let him play with toy guns,’ said Colene.
A school parent named Lakaya Pitts told News 4 she believes the 12-year-old's parents are somewhat responsible.
Jack Logan, the president of The Put Down The Guns Young People organization said, “That child should not have had any way of getting to that gun. If they would have had that gun locked, Trayvon Dodd would still be living today.’
The lights stayed on Thursday night following the game to honor Trayvon's memory.
