ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Clayton County police say they are still searching for suspects after a 13-year-old boy was shot to death during an armed robbery outside Atlanta.
Authorities say two men in an SUV approached Steven Galindo as he was putting air in his sister’s tire Monday night in Forest Park. Officials say they demanded the keys to the woman’s car and their other belongings.
Police say Galindo’s sister gave one suspect her keys and the other man tried starting the woman’s car. Authorities say the car didn’t start and one of the suspects began shooting at the woman’s vehicle. Galindo and his sister tried running away, but the teen was hit by gunfire.
Family and friends gathered Tuesday night for a candlelight vigil near the spot where the child was killed.
