Just after Calvin Clark Jr. was fatally shot Friday, his family said thieves took one last thing: his money.

Quacher Williams is pleading for her son’s shooter to come forward, Channel 2 Action News reported.

Clark was shot and killed breaking up a fight between co-workers at an apartment complex on the 600 block of Newtown Circle in Southeast Atlanta, the news station reported. He lived there with his girlfriend.

“He enjoyed living. He enjoyed life. He was comical. He was going back to school,” Williams said Sunday. “My son Calvin was a very quiet person, he worked every day. He bothered no one.”

Police told Channel 2 the shooting happened in broad daylight, but they have no leads on any suspects.

Calvin Clark Sr. said his son was robbed after the shooting.

“However much it was, it was his. It was his money, you know?” he told Channel 2.

A vigil for the younger Clark will be held 7 p.m. Wednesday outside the apartment complex where he was shot.
