To date, the Clayton County Police Department does not have the slightest lead in this case. The motives and identity of the offender are not known.
The boy could not survive the wounds he received and died in the arms of his brother, Law & Crime reports.
The shooter “didn’t say nothing,” Zavala said. “He didn’t say, ‘I’m assaulting you. I’m robbing you.’ Naw, he just stood there and shot my brother.”
"He basically told me, 'I can't no more, brother,'" Jesus recalled.
