A young student’s college dream trip to New York City ended in ruins after a stray bullet killed him.
According to his father, the young Indiana traveler received a stray bullet and died on the spot in Brooklyn. The rather tragic incident took place on Saturday. Moreover, his father revealed some more heartbreaking details of the case. And that’s where he confirmed how his son would want his shooter to know that he already forgave him.
20-year-old Ethan Williams was a hardworking college student that came from Indianapolis. Meanwhile, the traveling enthusiast was on a dream trip to New York. He was peacefully seated amongst his group of friends, right outside an Airbnb. Ethan Williams received a bullet to his chest, sometime around 2:30 AM.
On the other hand, the police confirmed how he was actually not the target for the bullets. In other words, it was an unintended gunfire target. It hit the group from a distance of around 200 feet. As soon as the incident took place, the shooter couldn’t believe the end result.
He simply dropped his gun down on the floor and fled the scene.This news was confirmed by law enforcement authorities.
His father reiterated the fact of how Ethan would always want the shooter to realize that he forgave him.At the same time, his father confirmed how Ethan was such a friendly and humble person. He would actually turn him into his friend.
The teen was a very giving person in general. He spent most of his life doing plenty of missionary work. From helping various charity organizations to orphanages in Rwanda, this young man did it all. And at such a young age, you’d probably never see such a selfless man ever.
At the same time, he also started an LGBTQ club during his high school years. However, it’s interesting to note that this man wasn’t gay. Still, he chose to stand up for the minorities.
“It’s hard to express how he loved everybody.” Hence, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that he didn’t know any strangers.
