Your daily dose of bittersweetness comes from the St. Paul Pioneer Press, which has the story of Marcus Williams’ graduation from City Academy High School in St. Paul yesterday.
He had no family to attend the graduation and his friend Keyira Nunn, 17, a junior at the school, was shot and killed in a shooting late last Friday afternoon. She died at the scene.
So yesterday afternoon, a day after arresting a suspect in the killing, the two investigators for the the St. Paul Police Department attended the commencement, accompanied St. Paul Police Senior Cmdr. Tina McNamara, who heads the homicide unit.
Nunn’s grandmother also showed up and gave young Marcus his friend’s Minnesota Wild jersey.
