Cleveland Police say 12-year-old Davia Garth and her mother, Sonya Garth-Gray, were shot on Clement Avenue Thursday evening. Both were taken to MetroHealth Medical Center where Davia died from her injuries. The shooting happened around 7:00 p.m. in the 6900 block of Clement Avenue.
According to investigators, Garth-Gray was arguing with her husband, Rufus Gray, when he pulled out a gun and started shooting, hitting her and Davia.
Gray, 59, was arrested at the scene, but has yet to be charged. He recently got off probation in another domestic case this week. He has other felony domestic cases and a manslaughter conviction that began as a murder case. Garth-Gray had recently filed for divorce from Gray, for the fifth time-she dropped the first four cases
Garth-Gary was initially listed in critical condition following the incident but has since been released. According to sources the mother was shot three times and Davia was shot trying to get out of the way. 
The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner is still working on the final cause of death.
Our Scott Taylor noticed Davia's 7th grade class at Hope Academy North Coast School was holding a memorial march for Davia. Garth-Gray talked with her daughter's school that morning. 
"Her message is she didn't want Davia forgotten. We are committed to making sure that doesn't happen so we are going to recognize Davia today and the weeks to come," said Principal Willie Banks. 
"Our class was saying she always had a smile on her face. Always made us laugh. Always had goofy faces she would give everybody. That's what we are thinking about today," said Davia's teacher, Laura Moherek. 
Peace in the Hood will hold a vigil for Davia and her mother on Sunday, Nov. 2, at 5:30 p.m. at the home on 6909 Clement Ave.

Air Jordan 1 “30th Anniversary”

Jordan Brand will be celebrating their 30 year anniversary in 2015 and there is some pretty big things planned for the huge milestone. Many colorways, old and new, of classic silhouettes will be releasing in “remastered” versions next year. One that has been quietly flying under the radar is this Air Jordan 1 “Laser” that celebrates 30 years since the Air Jordan 1 was first introduced back in 1985.

The Air Jordan 1 “30th Anniversary” features a white leather base upper with Nike Air branding on the tongue. The stand-out characteristic of the shoe is the laser print that takes over lots of the upper as well as the blue translucent sole. Take a look at the pictures above. Do you plan on picking these up when they release in 2015. Did Jordan Brand commemorate the Air Jordan 1 correctly with this sneaker?

The Nike KD 7 ‘Bad Apple’ Proves That There’s One In Every Bunch

Kevin Durant continues to pay off for Nike and we are on the cusp of yet another dope Nike KD 7 release. This time the signature sneaker is given a colorway dubbed the ‘Bad Apple’ and it certainly has a familiar feel thanks to Kanye.
It’s hard not to draw a comparison between the Nike KD 7 ‘Bad Apple’ and the Nike Air Yeezy 2 ‘Solar Red’ but while similar the colorways are definitely not the same. The biggest difference is that Kevin’s kick employs Action Red which reads darker than Solar Red and also features Medium Mint as well.
The Nike KD 7 will be at select retailers this weekend for $150 bucks which is a small price to pay for such an ill colorway.

This Summer has housed plenty Nike Lebron 11 Low releases, all of which featured the perfect colorway for Summer.

The sneaker gets dressed in a Mystic Green base and receives help from Medium Mint along the mudguard and laces. Bits of Crimson pop up along the outsole and eyelets which wraps up the desing. Check for these kicks at your local Nike retailer if you’re interested.
