ATLANTA  - A teenager has been shot to death in Atlanta after a car was egged on Halloween, and police are looking for a suspect.

Police spokeswoman Kim Jones says the shooting occurred around 8 p.m. Sunday. She says the victim died en route to Grady Memorial Hospital.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner's office identified the victim as 17-year-old Tivarus Irving of Union City.

Atlanta Police Maj. Keith Meadows says investigators don't know if the victim was responsible for the egging.

Meadows says police had received a call about the egging and dispatched an officer who was monitoring the area. He says the shooting took place after the officer was sent elsewhere.

Witnesses say the shooter was driving a gold, four-door Mercedes 190E.

This is a perfect example of

This is a perfect example of the anti gun protesters message! Crazy people going off. Whether the shooters car was egged or not, it's mighty coinky dink that the article is about egging and a driver of a nice car killed a teenager.
I do hope if they do prove it was the car egged, they find the driver and he/she pays the ultimate price.
Just idiotic IF that is the reason you take someones life!

My heart goes out to Mr.

My heart goes out to Mr. Irvings family. The piece of poop that shot him had better get the death penalty ! And I'm sure the gun is registered and the shooter has a valid license -- NOT. Time for a dirt nap, any way we can get it. He needs to be stopped DEAD.

How sad a person had to loose

How sad a person had to loose their life over stupidity. Bottom line is always try to do what is right, stay away from trouble and usually, it will stay away from you. I hope they catch this violent murderer.
