Family and friends gather on Friday to honor Chavan Scruggs | Mobile County Alabama News
Mobile, Alabama. (WALA) – Family members paid tribute to 16-year-old Chavan Scruggs on Friday night. This after Scruggs was shot on Monday night on Allison Street.
It was heartbreaking for all involved. And now, as they keep trying to pick up the pieces, the police are looking for the culprit.
His mother Nija Hill still can’t believe he’s gone.
“Chavan was a funny and loving person. He had pictures and banners all around the floor. He had a lot of friends who really and honestly loved him. I’m just glad it had that effect, ”Hill said.
This vigil took place a few meters from where Scruggs played football in Leflore. It was one of the many things he enjoyed. And one of the things that was taken away too soon.
“I honestly think he’s smiling. Chavan was a loving child. He was funny. He was stupid. He just brought the room to life. He is irreplaceable. I am happy for the 16 years that the Lord has allowed me to share with him “.
And for anyone who has seen anything, this family needs your help.
“Every clue matters. If you don’t say anything, it could be you. You would like someone to say something if it was you. We need to think about our own lives when we lose others. I’m just saying if you know something, say something, ”Hill said.
Police have not named a suspect or person of interest. Anyone with information is asked to call the mobile police.
