DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — DeKalb County police say they are investigating a homicide involving a child.
The incident happened on Rocky Pine Drive in DeKalb County Wednesday night.
Police told Channel 2's Carl Willis that a father killed his 5-year-old son.
“Children in the back of the police car. There's a lady and other children sitting on the corner and the coroner was taking the body,” one neighbor, who did not identify themselves, told Willis.
Police said the young victim lived at the home with his grandmother.
On Wednesday, the boy's father and mother arrived in town from California and showed up at the grandmother's house unannounced.
At one point the mother and grandmother left the father at the home with his son and three other children.
"They came home and learned that the child had been murdered,” Shiera Campbell with the DeKalb County Police Department said.
