He was sentenced to death in the hospital.

According to police, they unleashed a rain of bullets in an area where neighbors had horses for their children to keep pets. One of the horses was also killed in the attack.

Richmond County Sheriff Richard Roundtree told reporters Monday, “I’m following up on all the incoming leads, but accepting the fact that no one knows who these suspects are. I can’t do it and I won’t accept it. ” “There are individuals in this community who know why they are there, what they are for, and who they are looking for, but they still couldn’t provide this information.”

“All violence with shooting is meaningless, but when it comes to children, we take it personally,” Roundtree called the firearm a “coward.”

Police are seeking the help of the general public to identify suspects in the car. The suspect may have had a black top or black stripes on the hood.

“My brother is never the same,” she said of Anthony’s father. “What he stole from him from us is unimaginable pain and wounds. He took very precious things from us to very meaningless things.”
