Greensboro mother frustrated, angry after 14-year-old son killed; ‘I feel like I was robbed’
By Madison Forsey,
GREENSBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — “Where do these 13 and 14-year-old kids get guns from?”
That’s the question that Stephanie Scott wants answers to. She is frustrated and angry after her son, Tron Davis Jr., was shot and killed earlier this year.
Every morning, Stephanie Scott stands in her son’s room staring at the urn that holds his ashes. Sometimes she talks to her son, but other times she says this is where she comes to cry. This room is no longer a place where Scott will find her son playing video games or watching sports.
“My heart, my whole world, everything was just in shock. I couldn’t cry, I couldn’t…nothing, I was in shock. I couldn’t believe they were telling me my son had been shot and he wasn’t going to make it and there was nothing more they could do,” she said. “It does give me comfort to know he didn’t suffer, that it was quick, but…it still hurts, because he’s not here anymore and it’s just not fair.”
Scott is using her loss as a call to action, she knows there needs to be more help for young people in the community and to keep other families from experiencing the same heartbreak.
“My son is dead and gone. He’ll never be able to get married, he’ll never be able to have kids, first car, first prom, none of that.”
Scott plans to work with local groups to share Tron’s story and help teach kids the dangers of guns. She has also reached out to the judge who made the decision to electronically monitor the suspect in Tron’s death to understand why he isn’t facing harsher punishment.
