Angelo Crooms Memorial Fund

On November 13, 2020, I received the most heartbreaking news of my life. My sixteen-year-old son, Angelo Crooms, was shot and killed by a Florida Sheriff’s Deputy during an attempted traffic stop. The officer also shot and killed, Sincere Pierce, who was an 18 years old occupant of the vehicle.  My son Angelo was a loving and caring child, who leaves behind eight amazing siblings whom he loved dearly.  This fund is established to cover outstanding funeral and burial expenses, mental and grief counseling, lodging and travel for all court proceedings, and to assist our family in the days to come as we continue to seek justice for Angelo
