Shannon was joined in High Point by more than 100 people on Saturday for a march and rally in her son’s honor. Cox was just 18 years old when he was shot and killed by Davidson County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Shane Hill. Cox had been attending a memorial service at Living Water Baptist Church in High Point on Nov. 8, 2020, when cars driving past the church started shooting from the street, according to a police report and the medical examiner’s report. Cox, who was on the opposite side of the building from the shooting, began running towards the church for cover and helped a mother and son into the building before being shot and killed by Hill, according to a witness. Both the autopsy report by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner as well as the incident report by the High Point police department note that Cox’s death was a result of a homicide. The police incident report lists Cox as well as two other victims but makes no mention of Hill. According to the report, no charges were made at that time.
