Kamren Remembered

An 11-year-old boy, shot to death a week ago, was remember Friday as his family said farewell.

Kamren Shannon was shot and killed in what his family calls a tragic accident. Kamren's uncle, David Davis, is accused of Second-Degree Murder. Davis allegedly fired three shots when Kamren knocked on his door.

During Kamren's funeral Friday, his father, Joseph Shannon Jr. told the packed church that if they want to honor is son, they should use his death as inspiration.

"Every situation is an opportunity for God to work a miracle," he said.

With an emphasis on their faith, family and friends celebrated Kamren Shannon's life. His principal at Jesuit Middle School, Tony Connelly, told a story about the first time he meet him.

"I didn't realize at the time I was among an angel that evening," Connelly said. "What an instrument of God."

Kamren's classmates, teachers, and friends were all in attendance.

A memorial fund has been set-up in honor of Kamren Shannon. Proceeds will help fund tuition to Jesuit Middle School for children who would not otherwise be able to afford it.
