Categories: 2012 Homicides
UPDATE, MAY 9, 10:40 A.M.: The Orange County coroner's office has identified the 17-year-old boy found shot to death in an Anaheim driveway Friday as Kevin Fahim Danyal.

Online tributes from friends say the Anaheim resident's nickname was "Soldier."

Reports of shots fired in the 200 block of East Florence Drive around 10 p.m. Friday led Anaheim Police to the driveway where they found Danyal suffering from gunshot wounds. He later died at the hospital.

Police believe the shooting was gang related, but information on Danyal's killer or killers has not been released.

"R.I.P." and "miss you already" read tributes to Danyal on Tumblr.

This is below a large version of the photo shown here on a special Tumblr "Wild Child" page:

Kevin you will be missed, words can not explain how much i miss and love you.  I'm glad you got to know the date of your mom and i getting married and hope you are there to watch and over see.  I will look after your mom as i know you would.  I miss you so much and will never forget the good times we hand just talking, going to Lake Havasu City on the boat watching you jump off the rocks into the water as your mom watched in fear ha.  the Christmases we spent together and the times i helped you with homework.  You were a great young man that left me with many great memories.  Kevin we all make mistakes in life, including the people behind some of these ignorant comments.  Only a handful of people knew you as i did, there was a good heart in you.  I think you just got lost for a bit and if time permitted you would of followed that great heart you had.  You will not be forgotten and your true friends along with your family will never forget you.  R.I.P. Kevin.
