Man walking dog kills teen attempting to rob him, police say

WSB TV

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. – A teen is dead and another suspect is on the run after DeKalb County police said they tried to rob a man walking his dog.

The shooting happened Wednesday night on Cedar Croft Lane in Lithonia.

Police told Channel 2 Action News the two suspects approached the man with a gun.  

“The subject that was shot and another individual that’s on the run attempted to rob a gentleman who was walking his dog,” said DeKalb County Lt. Rob Bryant.

“The gentleman pulled out his gun and shot them,” Bryant said.

The teen died from his injuries and the other person got away.

Police believe it’s a case of self-defense.

“The evidence is leaning towards no charges at this time,” Bryant said.

Police are not sure if the person who got away was shot. Investigators have not released any names.

The lieutenant reminded people to be careful of their surroundings while out walking dogs. He said if you have a permit, carry your gun.

Neighbors in the area say they are very concerned.

“We don’t know what was going on,” said neighbor Larry Shannon.

Shannon says he heard the gunshots Wednesday night.

“It was so close so it was loud. 5, 6, 7 maybe,” he said.

Police say a search of the neighborhood with a K-9 unit didn’t lead them to the suspects. That neighborhood is likely to be a little more on edge tonight.

“That’s crazy, but that’s the way things are going these days. People are just getting more crazy and more reckless,” said Shannon.

    We say even if you DON’T have a permit, carry your gun… and be prepared to use it.

    As per the 2nd amendment.

    “People are just getting more crazy and more reckless,”

    And dead.

    No names released in the report. So the perps were probably Jamal and LaQuan…I wonder how old the dog walker is. What kind of neighborhood is this?
