DECATUR — A 12-year-old from Decatur is part of a project by student journalists who sought to memorialize the 1,200 children killed by gun violence since the Feb. 14, 2018, mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida.  

Marqueius N. Gray was shot to death Nov. 12. Police said the shooting was an accident as a 20-year-old family friend was playing with a gun. 

The project at sinceparkland.org includes short obituaries for all 1,200 American child victims of gun violence in the past year. The stories were written by student journalists across the country who worked with The Miami Herald, McClatchy and The Trace, an online nonprofit news organization that covers firearms issues.
