COVINGTON, KENTUCKY (FOX19) -
Desean Peterson was shot and killed near 17th and
Garrard Streets in Covington, the same place where more than 100 people
gathered Wednesday night to remember the 19-year old with an ambitious future.
"Everybody loved Sean.
Sean as a loveable guy. He would help anybody," said Birgitte Peterson,
He was a standout athlete at
Holmes High School. His teammates remember him as a leader on the field
willing to do anything for anyone.
"Just an all-around good
person, somebody who is just so full of life. If you needed something, he
would make sure he got that for you. He would help you get that," said
Orlando Dixon, a teammate of Peterson's.
"He was a great team
leader. He led us for 4 years from a freshman. He just led the
team," said another teammate, Jeremy Couch.
That's why, for Peterson's
mother, she can't understand why he was killed.
"He did everything. He
did for his team. He did for his friends, his family. That's why I
don't understand why he's gone," said Peterson.
Peterson was also an aspiring
rapper. After the vigil ended, his friends stuck around, listening to his
music blaring from a car stereo. It's a legacy his 3-year old son,
Marieon, will have to remember his father.
"You got to have no heart to
just jump in the car and decide to kill somebody for no reason," Peterson told
Peterson died at UC Medical
Center after being shot. He also played basketball at Holmes High
