Friends remember vibrant teen killed in spree



OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) — Cody Myers loved three things: God, his family and music. In that order.

His family and friends described him Saturday as a humble, smiling devout Christian who got along with anyone he met. He was a talented guitar player who loved sharing his talent with the world — as a performer and as a teacher.

Myers was shot and killed two weeks ago, when police say he came into contact with two white supremacists on the run from the law and in need of a car. David Pedersen and Nicole Grigsby have admitted involvement in his killing.

Myers’ friends in the music school at Clackamas Community College described a talented musician with an unmatched work ethic, and a man destined for a bright future.
