BALTIMORE — The gas station at the 3300 block of Garrison Boulevard in Baltimore now has a new garden. Family and friends of 22-year-old Cody Young planted flowers to remember where Young was shot and killed two years ago.

Officers were called to the BP gas station just after 1 a.m. on July 1, 2017 to find Young with gunshot wounds to his body. He was taken to the hospital where he later died.

A year after Young’s death, family and friends created a memorial foundation in his honor called the Cody Young Empowerment Youth Charities to spread justice, love and education.

The place where their loved one was killed is now a place they can go to remember Young. Family and friends even spelled ‘Cody’ in planted flowers. The BP owner came to the planting to support the family.
