“I heard his mother screaming when she found out,” Coulbourne said through tears. “He was just at my house last night playing Xbox with my kids.”
Her daughter, Jaiya Crosell, 19, consoled her just a few yards away from where the firefighters worked. Crosell said the young man was trying to start a music career and was planning to enroll in a Job Corps training program.
“He was trying to make something of himself,” Crosell said. “He was trying to get out.”
Police have not released any information on a motive and ask anyone with any information about the killing to call Crime Stoppers at 404 577-8477.
