Gun violence activists protest teen's killing

'Another killing; another outcry'

MIAMI – Gun violence activist Tangela Sears was out Thursday afternoon protesting the killing of a 17-year-old in Miami's Liberty City neighborhood. 

About 5 p.m., Sears lead a protest at The Sugar Hill Apartments, 1425 NW 71 St., where David T. Goulbourne was killed.

Sears said she had a warning for gunmen spraying bullets: "Every time you kill someone, we are going to rally the area until they catch you." 

The pain of losing a son hits home for Sears. Last weekend, Sears was celebrating her son's birthday. David G. Queen Jr., Sears' son, would have turned 30, but he was gunned down last year in Tallahassee, after an argument in a parking lot. 

Police were asking anyone with information about Goulbourne's murder to call Miami-Dade Police Homicide Detective R. Raphael at 305-471-2400 or Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
