WORCESTER, Mass. (WHDH) – Heartbroken friends are remembering 16-year-old Sidney Krow Jr., who was shot and killed Saturday night in Worcester.
“Everybody loved him, he was just someone that was always around,” Krow’s friend, William Everson said. “If you wanted to talk to someone, he was that kid that if you were sad, he’ll go put a smile on your face.”
Krow’s death marks the first homicide in the city this year and the first fatal shooting since 2016.
Krow and some friends were walking back to a nearby house around 11:30 p.m. Saturday when shots rang out on Holland Road, according to police.
When officers arrived on the scene, they said they found four teens trying to help their friend.
A man was seen getting into a vehicle and driving off after the shooting, police said. Krow’s friends told 7News they believe the shooting was random.
No arrests have been made. The shooting is under investigation.
