17-Year-Old Wisconsin Boy Killed in Drive-By Shooting Outside Party


Police in Madison, Wis., are investigating the fatal drive-by shooting of a 17-year-old father-to-be who was killed Saturday outside a party.

The shooting of Jovan Freeny, who would’ve started his junior year of high school next month, occurred just before midnight near Camp Randall Stadium, where the University of Wisconsin football team plays.

While the shooting remains under investigation, Madison Police have yet to make an arrest.

The victim’s family spoke to the Wisconsin State Journal about the teen, who was involved in athletics at his school.

“I want justice for my son; he definitely didn’t deserve this,” Jovan’s mother, Tehesha Williams, told the paper. “They took a piece of me away and I’ll probably never be the same.”

Williams said her son attended the party with friends.

After Jovan was shot, his friends drove him to a nearby hospital, where Williams said they left the wounded teen in the parking lot before fleeing.
