Posted June 25, 2014
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Authorities say a teenager who spoke about gun violence at a Fayetteville City Council meeting was killed in a gunfight between two gangs.
Police told The Fayetteville Observer that 19-year-old Ravon Jordan was shot in the head Sunday during a gang gunfight at a house party attended by more than 70 teens. Police Chief Howard Medlock says the gang members fired at least 70 shots.
Authorities said Jordan died Monday.
On May 12, Jordan told council members that violence in Fayetteville needed to stop. He advocated for closing an apartment complex where he said at least four murders had occurred. Jordan speaks at the 52 minute mark.
Fayetteville police spokesman Lt. Todd Joyce said authorities are looking for clues in surveillance footage taken from a convenience store near the house where the party occurred.
