“Teen Accused of Shooting & Killing Pregnant Girlfriend in ‘Freak Accident'”

By | July 19, 2023



The tragic shooting of a 16-year-old pregnant girl has shocked the community, as the accused teenage boy claims it was a “freak accident.” Lorenzo Larry, 17, told investigators that he believed the safety was on when he pointed the gun at De’Shayla Ferguson, but it slipped, resulting in her being shot in the head.

This is not the first time Lorenzo has been accused of shooting and killing someone. Months before De’Shayla’s death, Jemile Pittman, 23, was killed, and Lorenzo claimed it was in self-defense. However, charges have not been filed in that case.

After the tragic incident with De’Shayla, Lorenzo admitted to fleeing the scene out of fear and confusion. He explained that he had just had a gender reveal party for their unborn baby and that they had argued about the paternity the day before. Moments before the shooting, they had another disagreement.

What makes this case even more disturbing is that there were multiple people present when Lorenzo shot De’Shayla, and one of them allegedly hid the gun after the incident. It raises questions about the environment in which these young individuals were living and the potential for further harm.

The loss of a young life and an unborn baby is a devastating tragedy. It is a stark reminder of the importance of responsible gun ownership and the need for stricter measures to prevent such incidents from occurring. The community must come together to support the families affected by this senseless act of violence and work towards preventing similar incidents in the future.

This case also highlights the need for comprehensive programs that address conflict resolution and anger management among teenagers. By providing them with the necessary tools to navigate difficult situations, we can hope to prevent future tragedies like this from happening..
