The three adolescents brutally shot during an attempted robbery have been identified by a Rockdale County coroner.
Isaiah Reid, Brandon Gresham, and Jaime Hernandez have been recognised as the three masked adolescents. Police first said that two of the guys were 16 and the third was 15 years old.
The autopsy findings, according to Coroner George Levett, would not be ready until many weeks. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is in charge of the autopsies.
According to Rockdale County Sheriff Eric Levett, the three adolescents planned to steal the homeowner and his family in the middle of the night.
When deputies came, they did locate masks on the dead young men’s faces, he claimed.
The event happened shortly after 4 a.m. on White Oak Court in Conyers, off Flat Shoals Road.
According to the sheriff, one of the suspects pulled a firearm and opened fire on the homeowners before one of the intended victims returned fire.
Reid, 16, and Hernandez, 15, were brothers, according to a family source.
The homeowner indicated, via a neighbour, that he was not ready to remark on the situation.
The sheriff indicated that the event was still being investigated to see if the homeowner would face prosecution or if it was a case of self-defense.
