Law enforcement officers will fan out in Cherokee Heights Thursday night where a Central High School student was killed before school last week.
Bibb County Sheriff David Davis hosts the department’s Walk for Safety in multiple neighborhoods each year, but the latest walk covers the street where Jayvon Sherman was shot to death.
Sherman, 16, was fatally wounded outside the old Winship Elementary School at 2560 Beech Avenue on Oct. 19.
Before 7:30 a.m. that morning, a passerby noticed the teen lying on the sidewalk in front of the school just off Pio Nono Avenue.
Davis described Jayvon as a “good kid” at Sunday’s candlelight vigil for Sherman.
A contingent of officers from the sheriff’s office will comb the neighborhood and address people’s concerns in an effort to strengthen a community partnership.
The safety walk begins at 5:30 p.m. at the old school.
