DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — Police have made an arrest in the shooting death of a 3-year-old boy, caught in the crossfire of a drive-by shooting in DeKalb County.
T'Rhigi Diggs was killed on Easter when he was shot while sitting in a car outside a gas station at Eastland and Bouldercrest roads.
Investigators said they arrested a 15-year-old boy and have charged him with murder in the case.
T’Rhigi's parents told Channel 2’s Justin Wilfon that they were stunned to hear that police believe their child was killed by a child.
“That’s sad, people need to learn how to keep their children in their house, in school,” said T’Rhigi’s mother, Rashonda Craig.
DeKalb County police believe the teenager shot and killed T’Rhigi as he rode past the gas station in his mother’s car on Easter Sunday.
“I don’t know how to even come at that. A 15-year-old boy? Like, I’m just glad they found him, that’s it,” said T’Rhigi’s father, Jamel Diggs.
Diggs’ parents told Wilfon they were confident police would find their son’s killer.
