Westbrook Teen Killed in Portland Shooting
Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Treyjon Arsenault today. In what appears to be a case of 'the wrong place, at the wrong time', Arsenault was with a group of people at Da Block Records Inc. in Portlands Old Port when he was shot and killed.
The 19 year old graduate of Westbrook High School was a bystander to a fight that didn't involve him yet cost him his life. Studio owner Ron Hargrove emphasized that, "...Treyjon was a victim. (The shooting) was not at him. Trey was just hanging.”
On Tuesday night, more than 100 people attended a candlelight vigil in memory of Arsenault in downtown Westbrook. Trey was a star athlete adn was remembered by friends as a "bright, intelligent kid, always smiling." Many were shocked by the news saying Arsenault was not someone who attracted that kind of violence.
In the wake of his tragedy, friends have set up a go-fund-me account to raise money to rebuild the Westbrook Basketball Courts and rename them in Trey's memory.
