FOREST PARK, Ga. (AP) — 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 tell WSB-TV that two people were in custody early 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 WXIA-TV that both suspects said the motive was to steal the truck because of its specialized doors, which are a similar style to a Lamborghini.
