Kobe Bryant has obviously been following the story of 15-year-old Jordan Edwards, who was shot and killed while sitting in a car that was leaving a party last month.
Bryant saw that Jordan’s brother, Kevon Edwards, who had been in the car when Jordan was killed, had just celebrated his 17th birthday, so he reached out to offer his birthday wishes as well as some gifts.
Bryant sent two pairs of his signature shoes as well as a signed jersey that said, “To Kevon, Do epic things! God bless. Much love!”
Jordan’s shooting has once again put the spotlight on police shootings, as the officer involved, Roy Oliver, has been fired and is facing murder charges for the shooting.
