Vela confronted the driver, who police believe shot him multiple times. Vela was pronounced dead at the scene. Gil, 23, told Channel 2 that she held her high school sweetheart in her arms as he took his last breath.
"I just held him, and I already knew," Gil told the news station.
According to an arrest warrant obtained in August by Cobb police, Gil conspired with Franks and Gutierrez, both 19, “to have the victim killed and did notify them about the victim’s location throughout the day and night.”
No motive on the fatal shooting was provided by Cobb police. Gil, Franks and Gutierrez were arrested and booked into the Cobb County jail where they remain held without bond.
