A bullet intended for someone else hit and killed 17-year-old Jamahri Syndor on August 10 in Washington D.C. while she was driving. Syndor was described as a wonderful young lady by all of her teachers. A recent graduate of Woodrow Wilson High School in Northwest D.C., she was captain of her high school's cheerleading squad and sang in the choir. She was headed to Florida A&M University to start her freshman year of college within days of her death.
Truly a tragic and heartbreaking story, NBC Washington reports that her killers are still on the loose. Despite the need for justice for this beautiful young lady, her family also told the news outlet that her organs have been able to save six lives.
A vigil was held for Syndor this past Thursday near the area of the shooting, where hundreds gathered to honor her unexpected passing. Two officers from the Upper Darby Police Department in Pennsylvania were among those who came to honor her. Jamahri's donated liver saved the life of an Upper Darby officer. Five other lives were saved thanks to the teen's donated organs.
Even in death, this beautiful young lady can be a blessing to the lives of others. Our deepest condolences to the family of Jamahri, and we hope that her killer is found and justice is served. She would have been an amazing Rattler.
