Shaun M. Hankins II

My firstborn, my amazing son, Shaun, was murdered in April 2023. It still doesn’t seem real. I keep waiting for him to come home any minute. My unarmed son was set up by someone he trusted, and was shot in the head in a church parking lot. He left our home at 11 p.m. on April 23 to go stay with a girl he was dating, and he was found a few hours later. Now every day I wake up praying it was a nightmare, only to lose him all over again when reality hits. No family deserves this hell!
