Detroit, Michigan (WXYZ - The search continues for the person or people who killed a Detroit Prep Football star. On the 2 year anniversary of Allantae Powell’s death his family is looking for justice.
“It’s just senseless. This young man had a great opportunity ahead of him. He was graduating school and his life was taken so soon,” said Allantae’s father Deon Rushin.
Standing on Saturday where her only son was gunned down on Detroit’s west side his mom Kimberly Powell said, “We’re just here today to bring back awareness to the community that we haven’t forgotten that this crime is unsolved.”
The Osborn High School senior would have been a college sophomore this fall. In fact, his achievements in football garnered interest from universities around the country.
The family went door to door reminding people that the investigation into who killed him isn’t solved. The hope with every flier, every door hanger is that someone speaks up. But even if they don’t, loved ones know every stop along this block brings them one step closer to peace.
“This is the way I continue to heal by helping in the community and reaching out to the community,” said Powell
