Friend, woman accused of fatally shooting 19-year-old

Two people face murder charges after police say they shot and killed a 19-year-old outside his Forest Park home two weeks ago.

Daillon Pattillo and another person were sitting his car when he was shot and killed Jan. 4, Channel 2 Action News reported. Forest Park police found him slumped behind the wheel. 

Pattillo’s grandmother Linda believes Tammy Land and Ashton Wyatt lured her grandson to the Astor Avenue home and killed him, according to Channel 2. The duo, both 19, had arranged to meet with Daillon Pattillo. 

Linda Pattillo told Channel 2 her grandson and Wyatt were friends, but believes the two stopped talking because they both were dating Land. Police have not determined a motive, according to the news station. 

Land and Wyatt remain in the Clayton County jail on murder and drug charges. Land also faces obstruction and child restraint violation charges.
