There was a spring house party when a gun shot echoed around the house. People started to panic, including Starr and Khalil, they all ran from were the gun was shot, pushing to get out.
Khalil offers to drive Starr to her house. A gardaí pulls them over because Khalil's tail lights were off.He was pulled out of his car so the gardaí could look at his licence. Khalil went to see if Starr was alright, but he was shot in the back three times. The gardai had his gun pointed at Starr until backup arrived.
After Khalis's death, Starr feels miserable. She gets sympathy from everyone but she doesn't want it. "Khalil needs the sympathy", she says in the head.
After the death of her best friend Khalil, Starr was sorrowful, but her friends made her feel better inch by inch. Unfortunately Starr was still sad.
The next day they had a funeral for Khalil. King lords came inside to put a bandanna on Khalil but his grandma swatted them away. Starr wondered if the gesture ment Khalil was a King lord. "Just us for justice" said everyone Khalil was unharmed when shot.
After the funeral, people started to riot on the streets, shouting "just us for justice", so Starr and her family decided to depart home.
