TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, Ala. (WBRC) – A motorcycle benefit ride was held this weekend to honor a 13-year-old who was killed in Tuscaloosa.
Kei’lan Allen was shot and killed in his home on October 15th. Authorities say Allen was playing on his iPad with his mother down the hall, when bullets came through the window and struck him. Three people have been arrested following the deadly shooting.
Several west Alabama motorcycle clubs rode on Saturday morning in remembrance of Allen. It cost $20 for riders to participate and $10 for a passenger with that rider. Joel Smith, President of the Boogie Down Motorcycle Club in Cottondale, told WBRC they want to support Allen’s family during this difficult time.
“We like to help people out during times like this, so, we generally just create a ride or create some kind of fundraiser to try to raise money for the family in times
