A young life was cut short in the most horrific manner when 13-year-old Noah Inman collapsed in front of his friends while playing basketball.
The day which was meant to be full of fun ended with a tragedy and left Noah’s parents and family inconsolable.
The moment the young boy fell on the ground, no one was aware what happened. They just saw him experiencing what looked like a seizure, although it was obvious something more serious was going on.
He was quickly rushed to the hospital where he spent seven long days fighting for his life, but there was nothing that could be done.
It was later revealed that Noah was killed by a bullet someone fired at the area where he played with his friends.
A tear-jerking update to the GoFundMe page established after the incident read:
“We are saddened to say our sweet Noah passed away this afternoon after fighting his injuries for the last 7 days. He was surrounded by family who love him dearly. He fought hard and we know he is finally at peace. Thank you all for your contributions as they will be used to help his parents pay for medical expenses and memorial services. Please continue to keep Noah and your family in your prayers.“
Hammond Police Department conducted an investigation and it was concluded that the bullet that killed Noah was fired during a celebration. Mayor Tom McDermott Jr. asked the person who fired the bullet to come forward, labeling Noah’s dead as tragic and senseless.
Noah was described as a dedicated young man who loved basketball. His coach, Juan Maldonado, spoke of Noah as of a “dream kid.”
Rest in peace, Noah.
