His ruined family says the teenager was shot over a pair of shoes on the stairs in the house.
& # 39; My brother was shot on the stairs in the house, and now they say it's not about a gun, but about a pair of shoes! It was more than a pair of shoes, & # 39; Treaujalaune & # 39; s sister, Tyquajanna, Denver7.
Tyquajanna said her brother had been in the Washington High School car wash when he and a friend started arguing about Jordan's fight before continuing the argument in a nearby house.
& # 39; The boy who sat there with him and saw him die, and saw him go when he should have died at our house, killed him, & # 39; she told the publication.

She also revealed that the suspect initially blamed another teenager for the shooting before admitting to firing the gun.
Tyquajanna revealed that she had spoken with the boy's mother before she heard that he was in fact the suspect.
& # 39; She said to me: & # 39; My son feels so bad. He cries every night and tells me that he sees Trey every time he goes to sleep. & # 39; But to wake up this morning and know that you were the one who did that to him, & she told the publication.
The suspect is detained for manslaughter, second-degree assault, three counts of impending crime, in an attempt to influence government officials and a juvenile in possession of a gun.
The Treaujalaune family has now set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for the funeral, where dozens of messages from teachers and family members have entered.
& # 39; I was Tre's kindergarten teacher. We had a great relationship and it was so exciting for his growth. Tre and his family were a big part of Meadow Point Elementary. He will be missed, & Heather Curd wrote.
& # 39; I was Tre & # 39; s school nurse at high school and I was lucky to get to know him during his 3 years with us. I really had a weakness for my heart, & said Glenda Kauffman.
Kirsty Bates said: & I am a teacher at GW and there are no words to express this meaningless loss in our community. My heart goes out to the family when they grieve for the loss of his future and what he could have been. & # 39;
A candlelight vigil will be held on Friday in memory of the young student.
