An Ohio mom is mourning the loss of her young son, who was needlessly shot and killed while taking out the trash.
Columbus police officers arrived at the 5300 block of Hazelwood Road in Columbus on Sunday, to find 14-year-old Dayvion Jones lying unresponsive in the street. The boy was rushed to a local hospital where he ultimately passed away, CBS 10 reports.
Police say a group of men in a stolen SUV approached Dayvion. One of the men opened fire before the vehicle sped from the scene.
The shooting happened just minutes after the teen kissed his mother and took the trash out.
“If you don’t know already, he’s an angel now and all that looked out for him and loved him…he’s going to look down and shine all on you,” Dayvion’s mother, Kim, said.
“I just want to call his name and he walk through my door right now.”
After the shooting, the suspects crashed the stolen SUV near Tamarack Boulevard and Forest Village. The suspects then fled on foot from the scene.
