LILBURN, Ga. — Police say a 3-year-old boy was shot to death on the driveway of his home in Lilburn, just outside Atlanta.

Gwinnett County police Cpl. Jake Smith said the boy was hit by gunfire apparently intended for someone else shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday.

Investigators believe a dispute between family members escalated to gunfire outside the home on Stafford Drive, near Indian Trail Road.

Smith tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that investigators think a family member was trying to shoot someone else when the boy was struck.

Smith said the suspect, whose name wasn’t released, was being questioned by investigators but had not been charged with any crimes late Tuesday.

The area has been on a down skid for years.

I see it hasn't hit bottom yet.

"Another innocent baby ....when will we learn."

"We" don't need to learn. Common sense can't be taught.

The people guilty of these atrocities will NEVER learn.

The punishment can be made to FIT THE CRIME though, and that seldom seems to be the case.

We (society) will NOT learn!!

We (society) will NOT learn!! The people in society who WOULD learn, already have and did so VERY long ago. WE would never do something like this, ever!!! Those who do things like this, won't learn and need to be DESTROYED!!! They don't need life sentences they need to be DESTROYED!!

Matt 10:28 " And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to DESTROY both soul and body in hell."

THIS, is the ONLY time we will live in a peaceful society!! When God completely destroys every person in existence who would do so acts!!

Once the perp is apprehended,

Once the perp is apprehended, there should be no trial, no mercy. Whoever the perp is should be executed immediately by whatever means are at hand, whether it is a shorted out electrical cord or a tall tree an short rope

The murdering
Unpublished

"grandfather" had previous encounters with the law and spent 8 years in prison in Puerto Rico. He's now concerned that fact may impact his verdict in the greater Atlanta assassination of his grandchild, according to local news reports. Put him in the center of the prison common area, without any vaseline.
