At the vigil in Fort Worth for the death of a teenager in Whataburger, mom says she forgave the attackers


For the people closest to him, Zechariah Trevino prepared a long story or a meal. He was done with a joke. And he took care of a pet chicken.

Trevino, who was 17 years old and was shot dead in a fusillade as he stood outside a fast food restaurant in Fort Worth after classes ended on Friday at Paschal High School, where he was a junior. His mother remembered him as a knight in shining armor who was killed standing behind a cousin, who was also shot.

Erica Trevino described her son at a prayer service and candlelight vigil at University United Methodist Church on a block adjacent to Paschal High and Whataburger, the diner at 2401 W. Berry St. where he worked and was killed.

The victim’s mother said that while grieving, she had prayed and forgiven for the three teenage attackers police had arrested in connection with the murder.

“I just hope you find your way from here,” Erica Trevino told reporters.

Her son was pronounced dead at a hospital less than an hour after being shot at. His cousin, also a Paschal High student, was shot at the same time. She appears to have told police that a person she knows as Danny B arrived at the restaurant in an SUV with four others before the shooting

The surviving victim appears to have told police that the shooting was prompted by her public criticism of a gang whose members she believes were involved in her sister’s overdose death.

An affidavit of the arrest warrant details the rationale of the police investigation and the evidence homicide detectives have concluded in support of the arrests in the case of three teenagers on suspicion of murder. The document contains the name of the female victim who survived. Other information in the document makes her role as eyewitness and victim clear.
