Police Apprehend Suspects After Teen Killed

ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Police have apprehended two suspects in connection with the fatal shooting of a 13-year-old boy who was gunned down during an armed robbery and attempted carjacking outside Atlanta.

Clayton County police said 18-year-olds Gilberto Gomez Jr. of Forest Park and Sergio Reyes Alvear of Atlanta were in custody Thursday. Clayton County Jail records show that both men face murder charges.

Two men in an SUV approached Steven Galindo as he was putting air in his sister’s tire Monday night in Forest Park — just south of Atlanta — authorities said. They demanded the keys to the woman’s Chevy truck and their other belongings.

Police tell say both suspects said the motive was to steal the truck because of its specialized doors, which are a similar style to a Lamborghini.
