“I want to take myself back to where my child took his last breath,” Dede said.

Dede said she was on a work trip in California and her high school graduate son Dillon Denman lives with his grandmother, but she called him before he went to the party, not knowing it would be the last Sometimes she would hear his voice.

“He said, ‘Grandma said I can go to a pool party, is that okay?’ I said ‘yes, I love you’ and he said ‘I love you too,'” the mother said.

Less than an hour later, officers and ambulances stormed into the apartment complex’s parking lot that night.

According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, a brawl broke out and several people began shooting outside the rental office. The pool is behind the office. Dillon was among the three who were shot and taken to hospital, where he died.

“I will not see my child walk the stage this year. I won’t see a college acceptance letter because he’s gone, and he’s gone from senseless violence,” Dede said.

Dillon’s best friend, Cameron Allen, was also shot. The two had known each other since middle school and played minor league soccer.

“Dillon has been playing football since he was six,” said Dede. “That was his life.”

Cameron’s mom told ABC13 that her son had a huge smile that lit up a room, loved having fun and just being a teenager.

Several people were seen being questioned at a nearby gas station, but no one has yet been charged.

“I want justice and I won’t stop until I get justice for my son and for Cameron,” Dede said. “They were good kids. They had their whole future ahead of them. They were sweet kids. They didn’t deserve it at all.”

The third victim who was taken to the hospital is expected to be fine.
