Teen Basketball Star Killed Defending Sister From Her Ex

Jalen Merriweather was a star basketball player who had so much to live for. The 18-year old’s life was cut short as he did what any brother would do for their sister.

Jalen was shot and killed last weekend when his older sister’s ex-boyfriend pistol whipped her at Broadmore Gardens Apartments on James I. Harrison Jr. Parkwayin Tuscaloosa Alabama according to AL.com. Donald Robertson, 48, also took shots at his ex-girlfriend after he shot her brother. He is still on the run.

Holt Ironmen won the AHSA Class 4A championship the night before his death. He was also scheduled to take the ACT that weekend.
