BLM: Children’s Lives Don’t Matter



  • Jayden Ugwuh (9) and Montell Ross (8) were gunned down in their home in Kansas City, Missouri early Saturday morning.
  • The two boys, cousins, were apparently at Jayden's mother's house when the attack happened.
  • After Jayden was shot he walked into his brother's bedroom, curled up next to him, and died.
  • Jayson Ugwuh, Jayden's father, is now speaking out against violence in the neighborhood.

Jayden Ugwuh (9) was sleeping at his home in Kansas City, Missouri when stray bullets ripped through the walls killing him and his cousin Montell Ross (8). Now Jayden's father, Jayson Ugwuh, is speaking out against violence in the neighborhood.

Mr. Ugwuh said, “I do not get it. I swear. We have to protect the future. He's the future.”

Police are beginning to believe that whoever was responsible for the deaths of the two boys were inside the house at one point or another. It seemed to be that someone inside the home was the intended target. Six children were sleeping inside the house when, early Saturday morning, a gunman sprayed bullets into the home.

Mr. Ugwuh said that Jayden woke up around 1:30 early that Saturday morning to bullets ripping through the walls of the house. He quickly ran out of the room but when he found that his cousin, Montell Ross, wasn't behind him he turned back to get him. That is when the boys were shot.

Mr. Ugwuh said, “Didn't even cry, just got hit and ran and laid up under his big brother, you know. Like he knew exactly where to go for comfort, you know what I'm saying.”

Jayson Jr. (12) Jayden's older brother was asleep in another room. Apparently, after the attack, Jayden went into his brother's room, curled up next to him and died. Jayson Jr. told reporters that when he looked down at his brother he saw that his eyes were open but it was clear that he was no longer there.

“I got to deal with that and still raise them but what can I say to him, cause he actually held him, he held his cold body, you know what I am saying? How do I teach my son to cope with that when I can barely cope with it,” Mr. Ugwuh said.

The children were apparently at their mother's house, the one place Jayson Ugwuh wasn't worried about their safety. Mr. Ugwuh said, “He was in his safe spot, his home. This came to his home. So where else are you safe at if you are not safe where you sleep and wake up and eat. What can you do?”

Jayden was just a boy. A boy who loved to rap, who believed in superheroes and wanted to fly, who loved to draw, and now he is gone. Mr. Ugwuh said, “He can draw. He can draw you right now and it would look just like you, at 9 years old.”
