MILWAUKEE - "He was a smart kid, full of joy, happy all the time.  Full of joy and energy," said Gwendolyn Davis, Damien Davis' Grandmother.  "She said something is wrong, something is wrong with Damien and for me to come and see."

Her daughter ran over to get help.  Damien wasn't breathing.  
 
"I just took off running and told her to call 911," Davis said.
 
According to a criminal complaint, Damien's mother went to work, and her boyfriend, Darrell Rogers watched him.  He told police Damien slipped and fell in the shower and hit his head.  The medical examiner found several bruises and severe head and abdominal injuries.
 
"I did CPR and  tried, I tried what I could, but he was already," Davis said.
 
Now Davis and others are remembering the sweet little boy.
 
"May god be with him," Davis said.
