‘My son didn't deserve this' says mom of teen killed in shooting

ATLANTA — Police say a teen was shot and killed at a gas station in Atlanta Friday evening.

Authorities were called to the Texaco gas station on Sylvan Road just before 7 p.m. and found a man shot to death.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner identified the victim as Daronald Wilkerson, 17.


Police believe at least four people were in the car with the victim.

They think the shooter was in the car as well.

Police released photos of persons of interest who were seen running from the vehicle the victim was found in.

Friends and family held a candlelight vigil at the teen's home Saturday night.

The victim's mother said she can't sleep knowing her son's killer is still out there.

"I really want to know what happened to my baby," Tasandra Wilkerson said.

Dozens of people who gathered for the vigil shared memories of the young man, a high school junior, who was described as someone who loved music and fashion.

"He was a very caring person. He always cared about me, expected the best out of me," the victim's brother said.

Now, family and friends say they want the people with information about Wilkerson's killing to come forward.

"You know who you are and I just want you do to the right thing. My son didn't deserve this," Tasandra Wilkerson said.

The family has set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for funeral expenses.
