Every day in the U.S. about 89 people are shot dead in one way or another. At GunMemorial.org we try to post pages for all of these people even though the circumstances of their deaths can be drastically different.

Robert Dentmond, age 16

Fatally shot on March 20, 2016 in Gainesville, Florida.

Dentmond called 911 saying that he was going to kill himself. Police eventually shot him after he refused to drop the realistic-looking toy gun he was carrying.
