On January 29, in broad daylight Tyler was walking to his grandmother’s neighborhood when he was gunned down. Police officer Hayeden said in an interview “There is still a lot that we do not know about this terrible crime, But we do know that a 13-year-old was gunned down on a city street on an early Sunday afternoon. And we know that a monstrous event has shaken our city to its core.”

She further added “Today is about a measure of accountability and a measure of justice that we hope will begin to continue solidifying the healing process,”
According to the police record Skerritt was previously convicted in some other firearm offences in 2011 and 2014. He was also suspect in a murder in 2015 but later the jury found Skerritt not guilty in a trial in 2017.
