He didn't make it far.According to police, someone inside the Thunderbird fired multiple shots and killed Deandre. His body was found in a yard six houses from where his car broke down. Deandre's companion was not hurt.Police were searching Friday for the shooter or shooters. They were also looking for a gray, late-model Thunderbird with tinted windows and damage to the driver's side.''He did a few things and got into some trouble, but really, he's just a boy,'' said Anderson's aunt, Leta Middleton, on Friday. ``If you looked at him, he looks just like a boy. . . . People just gun happy. I guess they don't have a conscience anymore.''Deandre lived with his mother, Mary Simmons, in Liberty City, just a few miles from the shooting scene.Naomi Pierre-Daut, who lives across the street from where Anderson's body was found, said Thursday's shooting was frightening.''I heard seven shots so quick,'' said Pierre-Daut, who has lived on the block for seven years. ``I'm very scared to stay. I will put my house up for sale.''Mary Simmons grieved for her son with family members Friday at her apartment in Liberty City.''I just want to know why -- what was the reason?'' Simmons said. ``He was a child, a child, a child! No matter what they do, you can't do something like this to them.''
