Dedrick Gobert-Boyz-N-Hood

Remember the pacifier-toting actor in old school film Boyz N The Hood? His name was Dooky in the film, and he was the homeboy who was always on the block hanging out, and was down for whatever.  His real name was Dedrick Gobert, and he hadn’t even turned 23 years old, but he was violently killed over a drag-race.

He also appeared in supporting roles in two other Singleton directed films; Poetic Justice (1993) and Higher Learning (1995), which was released after his death. Flip the page to get details over what happened, and how he was killed.
