BOSTON (CBS) – A friend of 19-year-old Antawani Wright Davis remembered him Saturday as a talented teen who was full of potential.

Those closest to Antawani are now heartbroken.

“It hurts. You could see, he is something special,” his friend, Suhayl Azan, cried.

Antawani was a singer, an actor and a model, and “he did many things very well,” said Azan, who last saw Antawani a few days before he was killed, when they had dinner together.

Azan, a photographer, captured images of his friend just a week before he was killed.

“I think his goals as far as modeling was where his sights were set,” he said.

A local bike shop has donated a bicycle in honor of Antawani. It now hangs right outside of Antawani’s house, where his mother is trying to come to terms with his loss.

“She broke down, a lot of tears. She’s pulling herself together. She’s very strong,” Azan said.
