David Mack Disappearance
The 12-year-old called her Tuesday afternoon to say he was going to play football at a friend’s house, just like he had so many times before. He was typically home before dark, but as the hours passed his grandmother began to worry.
She called David’s cellphone repeatedly. Each time it went straight to voicemail. It wasn’t like him to be out so late, she told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Found Shot And Dead
After waiting hours for him to come home, she and David’s sister drove around their southwest Atlanta neighbourhood searching for him.
By 8:45 p.m., Mack called the police to their Beecher Road home and filed a missing person report. Officers canvassed the area but were unable to find the boy.
Several relatives stayed overnight, and on Wednesday morning, the family set out again to find him.
They discovered David’s body about 1:45 p.m. along a creek bed between Shirley Drive and the John A. White Golf Course, not far from his home.
He had been shot repeatedly.
Now, Mack just wants to know who killed her grandson.
She also wonders what went through David’s mind in his final moments.
“I wonder if he knew he was going to be shot or if he could have run,” she said Thursday morning, her voice breaking.
Residents near the crime scene said they heard several gunshots behind their homes Tuesday evening but didn’t realize anyone had been struck.
As of Thursday, no arrests had been made in the case and detectives were still working to determine what prompted the shooting.
The 12-year-old’s death follows a string of high-profile shootings across metro Atlanta that claimed the lives of several young children over the past year.
