SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - "He was an innocent bystander, he wasn't feuding with nobody," says Tracie Jackson.

Family and friends say 15 year old Terrell Savore was simply a casualty of a gun battle that erupted late Monday evening at the Cannan Village Apartments.

Shreveport Police say Savore was shot numerous times with different weapons including an assault rifle.

Police say the shooting was the result of an ongoing dispute between two groups of teens, but family members say Terrell wasn't involved.

" He was running from the bullet and got hit because people are dumb, and do dumb things." Tracie Jackson, Terrell's aunt says the loss of her 15 year old nephew was senseless.

"It's too close to the school They have children and go to school right next door. My nephew died for nothing." Jackson says Terrell was an 8th grade student at J.S. Clark Middle School in Shreveport.

Jackson says, when those fatal shots rang out Terrell was doing what he loved doing most. That was, riding his bike. "He liked to ride bicycles, make people laugh, joke with people. Having people chase him on the bike."

"He liked to go fishing with us everyday. We went fishing everyday Everybody loved him. He was a child, a baby, an innocent bystander."  Memories of Terrell family and friends say, they will miss.
