Devon Malik Harris played for the Virginia Beach Rhinos for five years. He was a great player on the field and a class act off the field. The 25-year-old was shot and killed on Granby Street this past weekend. He was not the only person shot and killed in that incident. Virginian Pilot reporter and CNN news assistant Sierra Jenkins was also shot and killed.
According to the police report, Jenkins was leaving a downtown Norfolk restaurant, Chicho’s Pizza Backstage, when an argument started outside the establishment, followed by gunfire.
Officers responded to the scene around 2 a.m. and found Jenkins and two men with life-threatening gunshot wounds. One of the men, 25-year-old Devon M. Harris, was pronounced dead on scene, and the second was transported to the hospital, police said in a news release.
Both Jenkins and Harris were innocent bystanders of the incident. Both of them were just 25 years old.
Jenkins had a bright future in television and Harris wanted to change the world off the field. Both of them were taken way too early. Please keep their families in your prayers.
