Black Teen Shot At For Asking Directions, Now Graduating From High School Early, Going To College

It was a little more than three years ago that Brennan Walker was nearly killed asking for directions to high school. Brennan will walk Saturday as a graduate he enters young adulthood – and he admitted he’s a little nervous about it.

He went to the prom in May, graduated a semester early, and is headed to Florida Memorial University in Miami – one of the historically Black colleges and universities.

“I kind of think I picked it just because I kind of wanted to be around more people of color and I kind of wanted to also leave Michigan because I feel like I know a lot of people here – and I want to be surrounded by new people.”
