    My GOD! I can’t belive such a thing.
    I’m a father of two and I would looz my mine if this were to happen to one of my babies.
    I would like to send my deepest condolences to the family and freinds of Tykeem.
    Poor child!!( I’m really sad right now)!

    It’s a sad day when a young man can’t just ride a bike in the road without being iether killed by a car running them over or being shot or beatup.

    I would also like to sey to every person that reads this!
    Please have mercy on one another.
