Jonathon Schmedding, age 15

Lost to gun violence on August 28, 2016 in Tucson, Arizona.

Jonathan was caught in the line of fire when he and a group of four others tried to rob another group.

Jonathon's brother has been charged with murder although he did not actually shoot Jonathan. Arizona's felony murder rule blames the accomplices when someone dies while committing a crime.

Jonathon was also known as "Bumper."
