The prefrontal cortex, which helps humans weigh risk and reward, doesn’t fully develop until the 20s. Teens are far more likely to take risks, and even more so when friends are watching.

The stakes are higher for black youth, like Malcolm and Trequan.

That’s why Trequan’s family moved out of Chicago. They thought the streets of Minneapolis would be safer, that they could turn their backs on violence.

According to Dre’Quan, Malcolm turned around and taunted them, saying that the Roosevelt kids had gotten whupped.

Malcolm referred to Dre’Quan as “son.”

“I’m not your child,” Dre’Quan replied.

Malcolm threw the first punch. Dre’Quan punched back, telling his siblings not to jump in.

When Malcolm’s friend tried to step in, Trequan hit him.
