    “Could you please turn yourself in? Could you tell me why? Why would you take his life? I won't be able to see my grandchildren. I won't be able to talk to him anymore,” Quacher Williams said.

    With her family by her side, Williams told Jose how her son worked hard for his money.

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

    On Friday, police were called to the 600 block of Newtown Circle in southeast Atlanta on a report of a deadly shooting.

    Clark lived in the apartment complex with his girlfriend.

    Clark's father believes his son was robbed and shot to death over a few dollars.

    “However much it was, it was his. It was his money, you know?” Calvin Clark Sr. told Jose.  

    The shooting happened in the middle of the day, but Atlanta police have few leads because witnesses aren't coming forward.

    “Please just come forward man, because we're over here grieving,” Clark Sr. pleaded.  

    Sunday night, family members gathered to remember the 23-year-old. They told Jose there won't be closure unless police make an arrest.

    “I don't understand any of this. I need justice for my son. Can somebody please tell me who killed him? He's not here anymore. Somebody tell me who killed him,” Williams said.

    The family is expected to meet with the medical examiner Monday.

    A vigil in Clark’s honor is planned for Wednesday at 7 p.m. outside the apartment where her son was killed.

    Anyone with information in this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477. Your call will remain anonymous and you could receive at $2,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.
