ATLANTA — Two people have been arrested and charged with murdering a 13-year-old Stone Mountain boy who was visiting his father last month in Florida.

Lloyd Robinson Jr. was shot in the face when he answered a knock on the door at his father's house. Tarod Weaver and Ronald Roscoe were arrested, and Daytona Beach, Fla., authorities are hoping to arrest three Irvin Shipman, Tyrone Ward and Carine Doctor.

Authorities say the suspects went to Lloyd Robinson Sr.'s house for a home invasion robbery but botched the heist and Mr. Robinson Jr. was shot in the face before the suspects fled. Police say Carine Doctor lured the Robinsons to the door so that one of the men could shoot at them.

The boy's father was grazed by a bullet in the attack.

Interested Reader, there are

Interested Reader, there are many laws designed to keep weapons (guns, knives, etc.) away from children. What's lacking is the will of the people and judicial system to deliver appropriate disciplinary action. These people decided to invade an occupied home, shoot the occupants, and steal. These aren't teenagers with nothing to do. I'm sure you'll find these people have extensive criminal histories, probably with other violent crimes.

Interested Reader, The 13 year old boy was not the shooter, he was the victim. The article did not state the ages of the suspects??

You'd be surprised at the young ages of murderers who have little criminal record before hand....It's sad, but I know that if they want guns they will get them no matter what. It's very unnerving to know you have to keep your guard up w/ kids as well as adults. You truly never know who the enemy is!

I know it is irrelevant, but

I know it is irrelevant, but it bothers me that the AC calls the murdered boy "Mr Robinson Jr". He wasn't a "Mr." yet, he was robbed of that. He was a boy that should have had the opportunity to grow into a man. But thanks to these animals, he will never hold that title. He was 13 years old, a mere boy, murdered by unfeeling, murderous thugs. I want the authorities to catch every last one of them, and for once, hold them accountable for what they've done to this child and his family. My thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones.

WGS725, sorry buddy, I forgot to hit the SPELLCHECK that the AC provides. Youre comment was very witty but if a mispelling makes someone naive in your book then maybe it should be you who checks the dictionary!

Native007.....I am guessing you could have spellchecked it yourself. Also....."I swear, are we getting dummer as a nation".....I guess we are because I believe it should be dumber.

Don't ya just love people who do nothing but scan the grammar and spelling of the posts, not even mentioning the first thing about the [filtered word]'s who took a child's life. Btw, you geniuses missed some!!

Welcome to the world of

Welcome to the world of government intervention into private lives, with its attendant destruction of families and neglect of proper raising of children. A hand-out intended as a hand-up destroyed a sickening proportion of what should have been two-parent black families (ie, boys need to live with their fathers to know how to be men themselves). A loss of moral standards, especially of being faithful in a lifelong commitment to marriage and family, has forced (or allowed) single parents to let virtual strangers raised their children, producing such feral creatures as Weaver, Roscoe, Shipman, Ward and Doctor. They're everywhere and possibly already or will soon outnumber the human beings in America. Barring some seismic sociological or spiritual event that would reduce Katrina to a tea party, it's only going to get worse.
