Tarren M. Gibson (My Patience)

My baby son, Tarren, was violently murdered November 23, 2022, at 6:20 p.m. He was a YouTuber and a blogger. He never played with guns. This is such a hard thing because I never thought it would touch my doorstep. He is the youngest out of my five children, which I call T-UNIT.

My baby was only 20 years old. I just believe he trusted the wrong people, and this has affected us so deeply that it’s unbelievable. He was his father’s only child, and he had no children. This gun violence in Lake County, Illinois, has to stop. I want to be a voice for my baby. The perpetrator has not been caught, and I don’t know how to take this.
