“Yes, I need some answers. That’s it. I need some,” said a grieving Tiffany Davis in an exclusive interview with CBS4’s Peter D’Oench.
Her son, Paul Royal, was shot and killed Tuesday afternoon while sitting in a car outside a home on N.W. 28th Court at N.W. 201st St. in Miami Gardens, according to Miami Gardens Police.
“He meant so much to me,” said Tiffany Davis. “He meant the world to me. He was my first born.”
“It’s like he was snatched away from us,” said Royal’s father, Damion Davis. “He didn’t deserve this. Words can not express our loss. I mean we are still asking ourselves why.”
Royal, who was known as “P.J.,” had played outside and middle linebacker for Carol City High School.
He was packing to leave on Saturday for Edward Waters College in Jacksonville, where he had a full scholarship.
