  2. i hope they catch who did this…you didnt deserve this! and to evanston cops…every student knows who did it so why dont you?!?!?! i love you so much and will never forget you!

  3. R.I.P SHANNON LUV U

  4. If every student knows who did it, why don’t you TELL THE POLICE?

  5. A loved one,

    Sonya is right.. If every student knows who this, they need to contact the police. If anyone keeps quiet about this, then they are no better than the person who pulled the trigger.

  6. SHANNON,
    WE LOVE YOU BRU AND MISS U VERY MUCH I CANT BELIEVE THIS HAD TO HAPPEN TO YOU DA TOWN WONT BE THE SAME WIT OUT YO SMILE DAT LIT EVERY ROOM U WALKED IN EVERYBODY GONNA MISS UR WALK…MR.TIP TOE I CANT STOP CRYING MAN N THIS IS NOT A DREAM ITS REAL, AND DA PERSON WHO DID IT U KNO WHO U ARE SO THEREFORE…………..CARMICHAEL TURN YO SELF IN CUZ ITS NOT RIGHT U TOOK A LOVED ONE FROM US BUT WAT GOES AROUND COME RIGHT BACK AROUND N WILL BITE U IN DA ASS BUT I LOVE YOU SHANNON KEEP LOOKIN OVA US…..KEEP SMILIN BABY!!!………..LOVE DOMO

  7. r.i.p shannon,,, we love u n will always remember.. i jus hope dis make everyone realize it’s time to stop all the beefin and fightin wit eachother. love u n i hope there is justice in dis situation

  8. i can’t believe shannon lost his life the way he did.
    he never deserved to die like that. But of course everything happens for a reason and i may have not known him all that good but at least i know that he was someone who wanted to make it and do something with his life. he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, and the person who did this to him u know who u are and i hope shannon stays on ur conscience forever n ever until u finaly get tired of it.but i till cant believe someone would really be so cruel enough to do something to an innocent boy like shannon who never did anything wrong at all.i couldnt imagine what his family is going threw right know.i hope their ok.i keep thinkin this is a dream n when i wake up shannon will be alive and none of this happened,but then again this is not a dream its rali guess god needed another angel,and it happened to be shannon!
    we’ll always miss u
    R.I.P shannon

  9. i did not know shannon but i feel really bad about what happened and i think that if everyone knows who did it someone needs to tell because it is not a small issue it is a big deal and he did not deserve to lose his life so these people who did it need to come forward because there is a family in pain and friends missing him i just feel really bad but everyone is remembering you even me and i didn’t know you
    r.i.p

  10. hey, man its sad that your gone man i hope they do find this guy and give him a life sentence. you always be in my heart and always be remember love you man. Rest in peace

  11. i did call the police and told them

  12. Shannon wasn´t a gangster but he sure as hell wasn´t no bitch

  13. i didnt know shannon that well but i would always recognize him in the halls at school because he had a smile on his face all the time.
    i hope that the person who did this to you will be found and that you will get justice for your death
    e-town not gone be the same without you and i hope you rest in peace and watch over all of us here and well all c u when we get there
    R.I.P Darryl Shannon Pickett

  16. Shannon…i cant believe u r gone!!!u Were like a lil bro 2 me!!!!Everytime I saw u u always had that big bright beautiul smile on your face nd always spoke….even though u were the quiet type you still knew how to bright someone’s day!!!Shannon u were a true angel 4rm above nd God needed u bak n Heaven to help him out up there….Shannon u got n da flesh but your family friends and associates have many wonderful memories of you to last us forever!!!And even though that coward Theo took away our angel we know u will be watching us from above!!!We love u Darell Shannon Pickett!!!Forever you live in our hearts!!!

  17. It’s sad that another young person had to loose their life over petty drama, that should have and could have been avoided!! I met Shannon last year and he was such a quiet, yet kind hearted person. His big smile lightened the life of many. We take life for granted sometimes, but it’s time to really wake up and as a community work together to end all this “beefin” between one another!! It’s a shame that this young, gifted, black, child’s life was ended by another child, a child who went to school with him at that!! It’s crazy and not real to me! We should take the life of Shannon and reflect on our own life’s and see that this could have been you, or your brother, or loved one. I’m praying for his family and loved one’s. Shed tears of joy, not sorrow, because he’s in a far better palce than any of us! He’s looking down on all of us and smiling right now! god only lended him to us for a short while, Shannon took his hand when he heard him call, gave his hand and left it all, tasks left undone must stay that way, not another moment to laugh or even play, we all ask why or even how…GOD WANTED HIS ANGEL/SON NOW!!!

  18. Darryl was our “big man on campus.” He will be missed more than words can ever express. I was so proud of him and the life he led. My prayers and thoughts are ever towards his wonderful family. I pray for comfort and peace.

  19. Does anyone have the details of when the funeral will be held?

  20. and also where?

  21. I’d been going to school with u since i was 10 and in the 5th grade up until i moved in the summer of 10th grade. Ever since we were young u never said to much and wen u spoke we had no choice but to listen. You always seemed shy like u had ur guard up all the time but by high school u slowly but surely crept out ur shell only to end up in heaven now. If i could rewind time i would but i can’t! u meant SOOOOOO much to so many people and u still do! I remember always having a crush on u wen we were younger…. I was too afraid to speak to u and now i never will… It really sucks how life plays out.. I only pray ur family can get through this i wish this fate to no one i know that the people who did this will never wash ur blood clean from there hands but there punishment isn’t up to me or any human on this earth they will answer to God as we all will… It is a shame how people just don’t valu human life GOD HAVE MERCY ON US ALL….. LOVE U SHANNON!!! FA REAL

  22. A concerned person,
    MY heart goes out to all of you who have been affected by Shannon’s death. I pray for the comfort you all seek and pray that the person responsible will get the time he deserves. This country has lost out on yet another young soul, whom from hearing you all say up here, will not be apart of our wonderful part of our future. The future of this country rest on our younger generation. American will feel this lose for ever. May god bless you and be with you all during this tragic time in your life and my he shine down on each of you.

  23. Hey everybody, if yall don’t know, the funeral for Darryl “Shannon” Pickett, is Saturday July 7th at First Church of God on Simpson. The Times are 9-10 and then 10-11. Make sure you stop by to show some love even if its just to view the body.

  24. DAMN MY NIGGA I CANT BELIEVE U GON IT WAS LIKE YESTADAY WHEN WE WAS PLAYIN BALL AT MASON AND SHYT BUT U IN A BETTER PLACE NOW THE HOOD WILL MISS U SHANNON REST IN PEACE UNTIL NEXT TIME

  25. well,now it don’t matter if some of us knew you or not.
    keep wondering if we should turn towards violence as a means of protection too. neither 50 cent nor 2pac.
    Shannon,you watching over us now;maybe you were the our tears are the dew you see every early morning. the tears we’ve all cried and still cry won’t bring you back,but they’ll remain a symbol for all we’ve lost,and someday it won’t really matter who did it much,but when it all ended.
    Rest In Peace..

    it’s just goodnight not goodbye..♥

  40. I didn’t know Darryl all that well, but its a shame that people lose their lives over BS. Look at Chicago, 34 Chicago students lost their lives to gun violence and none of them were involved in gangs. We as students need to stand up against gun violence. Darryl didn’t deserve to die like this. Only if President Bush would have voted yes on gun control we wouldn’t have this problem. Rest in peace man, may God bless your soul.

  41. shannon i know dis isnt the end i WILL SEE U AGAIN..i know even tho u not here physically u r mentality walkin me 2 every class and sittin next to me in lunch like old times..ill miss u love u babii

  42. hey shannon
    the night i seen your face on the news the only thing i could say was this got to be a nightmare this can’t be happening and when i relized it wasn’t a dream i broke out in tears. i want you to know that no matter who i ever be with nobody could never love me better. dont be mad at me if i dont come to the funeral im about to have a baby in less than a month and im on bed rest.i will never forget you. i remember the day that we met you were so scared to give me your number and you had the most beautiful smile. my heart goes out to your mother and doe doe. i know that your daddy (butch) is very happy because i got one of his angels up in haven with him. shannon i loved you very much and you will never be forgotten in my mind and heart. i will always love you
