    There is no way he could've been in the house when the shot went off I live right across from where it happened at and there was only one shot that went off and the shot was so clear for u to hear it this happened at 8pm.

      Tyshaun went to thornwood a while back. he was never in trouble. there is no way he shot his self. i think the friends he was with left him to die on his own. who ever gun it was knew there was a bullet left. they shouldve put this on safety. Now Tyshaun is gone. didnt even make it to 18
