“He was just a good kid,” Martin’s father, Roddrick Foster, told Channel 2.
Martin was an honor student at Alcovy High School who took the job at Zaxby’s to save enough money to buy his own car, the news station reported. Foster said his son was excited about getting into the DECA career club at his high school, and he had recently returned from a retreat. He had dreams of becoming a pilot.
Foster believes his son was not the intended target of the gunfire.
The sheriff’s office is investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call 404-575-TIPS or Cpl. Wade Freeman at 678-625-1445.
