The Dallas police department acted fast and have already made an arrest in connection of the murder of 17-year-old Leroy Hawkins, III. Hawkins III was expected to join Jackson State University on a full ride for football.
According to reports, homicide detectives arrested 18-year-old Kenaijae Keon Anderson.
Anderson was arrest and transported to Dallas Police Headquarters where detectives interview him. It was during the interview he confessed to killing Hawkins, a recent DeSoto High School grad.
Anderson is facing a charge of murder in the first degree. He is being held on a $200,000 bond.
This is horrible, I please ask that you pray for Mr. Hawkins family as well as the family of Mr. Anderson. It is never fair to watch a young child lose their lives to a senseless killing, but both families are likely going through a ton right now. Please keep them in your prayers.
