A day after boy is killed by police vehicle, questions arise about how it happened, supervision issues
TROY – The life of Khayzier Pugh fit the pattern of a child at risk.
Both his parents were in state prison. He lived with his aunt in a homeless shelter in the city of Rensselaer.
The child had been staying with his aunt, Tonia Pugh, at the St. Paul's Center, a center for homeless women in Rensselaer, said David Rossetti, the center's executive director.
"He was just your average 5-year-old kid," Rossetti said. "He loved life and doing daily things that kids like to do."
