Remember the story other day about the three urban youths in masks with guns who assumed room temp after a Georgia home owner went three for three?
OCKDALE COUNTY, Ga. – A community gathered Wednesday night to remember three teens killed by a homeowner in what police believe was an attempted robbery.
Isaiah Reed, Jamie Hernandez Jr. and Branden Gresham were killed after police say they approached a home in Conyers with masks on and one of the teens fired at the residents of the home. The alleged robbery victims returned fire, killing all three teens. The boys were 15 and 16 years old.
So far, no one has been charged in the teens’ deaths. Hmm, wonder why that is…
Channel 2’s Alyssa Hyman was at the Hunting Creek subdivision where family and friends gathered for a candlelight vigil and speakers encouraged the community to come together.
“I am tired of senseless violence. I am tired of senseless killings. I don’t want to see you next. I want to see everybody,” a community member said
I’m just a hillbilly in Kentucky, but it seems to be that if you get popped while trying to commit armed robbery of a home while wearing masks, it isn’t “senseless.”By all means correct me if I’m the wrong one here.
Members of the community said they wanted came together to show support for one another, hoping to put an end to violence. Try not committing violent felonies then.
Evangelist Renee Simpson said she organizes vigils anytime there’s a tragic death in the community.
This is not a tragedy. This is justice. One wonders if she would have organized the vigil had the home owner been the one killed by the three yutes
Hyman asked her how she would respond to people saying the teens were trying to rob someone.
“I haven’t heard that myself. ( oh of course not) I’ve read that in the newspaper, don’t know how true that is, but this is what I say, leave that part of the work to the police and then leave the death to God,” Simpson said.
Hyman went by the house where the shootings happened earlier this week.
She was not able to talk to any of the alleged robbery victims to get their side of the story.
The Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office said case is still very active.
