COBB COUNTY, Ga. — UPDATE: Three people, including a 15-year-old, have been arrested in the shooting. Police arrested 20-year-old Devin Thomas, of Kenensaw, and 18-year-old Maria Mungai on charges of felony murder. An unidentified 15-year-old from Kennesaw was the third arrested.
Acworth police continue to search for two men who shot and critically injured a young father in his work truck.
Family members told Channel 2's Chris Jose Daniel Perez, 25, is brain dead and on life support. He was taken off life support Monday night.
“This shouldn’t have happened,” said Perez’s sister in-law Lorena Gonzalez. “They need to turn themselves in. They just took away a father and my sister’s support system.”
Perez was shot in the head while sitting in a truck near North Cobb High school on Friday evening,
Acworth Police said.
Police said Perez and his younger brother were inside the truck when two men walked up to them. One of the men fired his gun.
“They’re cowards for doing this, especially the way they did it by sneaking up on them and running away,” said Gonzalez. “Danny tried hard to keep things together for everybody.”
