On Monday Travis Reinking was arrested in the woods of Nashville after allegedly eluding police for nearly a day. James Shaw, a member of Alpha Phi Alpha, was instrumental in stopping the gun man from killing more people.
Sorority sisters of Groves set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for her funeral.
“In the early morning hours of April 22nd 2018 the life of a wonderful Daughter , Sister and friend was cut short due to a senseless act of violence. DeEbony was an amazing young woman with an incredibly bright future ahead of her. She was an upstanding member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. and set to graduate from Belmont University next month. The loss of DeEbony is insurmountable, she touched so many lives, and she will never be forgotten or replaced,” the page reads in part.
Sharita Henderson, who is also a member of Delta Sigma Theta, was also injured during the attack and remains in the hospital.
