DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - Family members of a student killed a couple months before graduation hope a surveillance camera holds clues to find his killer.

“I'm so hurt right now, and I just wish whoever’s done this to my son would just really, just please turn yourself in,” the victim’s mother, Monique Boyer, said.

She hopes the killer will do the right thing.
   
“I know it's hard. You might be scared. You might not want to do it, but you took an innocent person's life,” Boyer said.
   
DeKalb County police said her son, 18-year-old Dominique Boyer, was sitting with friends outside of a unit at the Austin Oaks apartments Thursday just before 5 p.m. Officers said an SUV drove up and a passenger inside opened fire on the group. Boyer was the only one hit.

A surveillance camera is mounted on the roof a nearby building, but it’s unclear what was captured on tape. Channel 2’s Tom Jones asked police if they’ve reviewed the video, but he’s still waiting on an answer.

Family members hope the camera captured something that can lead to tips.

“Just anything, any clues. The car, the tag. Just anything that we can get,” the victim’s aunt, Lawanda Boyer, told Jones.

Boyer’s mother had one final message for the people that ended her son's dreams of being an accountant.

“You should really turn yourself in, because I’m not going to stop until justice is served,” she said.
