Former star basketball player, 18 year-old Desmond Myles Jenkins was found with a gunshot wound in the 9400 block of Prince George Lane. He was taken to Wake-Med where he was later pronounced dead.
Jenkins was remembered at a vigil in Raleigh last night, friends and former classmates were in total disbelief and “devastated” by the loss. He was weeks away from his freshman year, and continuing his career at Vance-Granville Community College.
