An Austell man told police he shot a teenager in the neck at a street corner Tuesday night, according to arrest warrants.
But what the warrants don’t say is why Taylin Quinshad Heard allegedly killed Aquavious Harris.
Neighbors told Channel 2 Action News the two had a feud for a while due to a traffic stop.
But Harris’ mother, Simeka Bostick, said that was no reason for her son to die.
“We had so many plans for his life,” she told Channel 2. “He was taken at 19, so he didn’t have a chance yet at life.”
Harris stumbled through the intersection of Center and Pine streets where he died, according to the news station.
During an interview, Heard admitted to shooting the South Cobb High School graduate with a .40-caliber gun.
Heard remained in the Cobb County Adult Detention Center on murder and aggravated assault charges, according to jail records.
The arrest isn’t solace enough for Bostick, who is still confused by her “sweet, mannerable” son’s murder.
“I don’t even know where to begin,” she said. “This morning, I didn’t even want to get out of the bed. Aquavious was my life. I don’t even know where to begin from here. I do know I want (Heard) to suffer for life because I have to suffer for life.”
