A community is devastated by the loss of their family and friend whose life was taken when shot by a stranger in Temple Hills.
20-year-old Dorian Hurd was gunned down in front of a tattoo parlor last Thursday around 6 p.m. on the 4300 block of Saint Barnabas Road.
Hurd’s father reflected on the person his son was, “A student-athlete, he was about his family, about becoming great in life,” the victim’s father said.
Based on PGPD reports the 29-year-old suspect, Tevin Ream had no relationship with the victim.
After the shooting, the suspect fled in an attempt to dump the weapon. Ream has later apprehended nearby the crime scene and charged with first- and second-degree murder, among additional charges.
Ream appeared in court on Monday and is being held on no-bond.
“This man should never have shared the same air space as anybody, let alone my child,” Tara Faunteroy, Hurd’s mother, said.
Parents of Dorian Hurd are furious by the suspect’s criminal past and ability to walk the streets as a free man, which led to the death of their child.
“For the life of me, I can’t understand how somebody with the rap sheet and the life this person was living — how he would be able to even be around not just my son, but in the community,” Hurd’s father, also named Dorian Hurd said.
Hurd II was getting a tattoo but was attending a Zoom online class when he stepped outside the shop where the shooting took place.
Dorian Hurd’s family described him as a 6-foot-7 young man with a big heart who’d been attending the University of the District of Columbia on a sports scholarship.
The Hurd family started a GoFundMe, which has now exceeded its goal, to manage the memorial celebration and funeral for their beloved child.
