Sunday around 7:30 p.m., Robert and his friend were inside a car at Woodrow Wilson and Pingree just blocks from his home when a minivan pulled up, two masked gunman jumped out and opened fire with an AK-47 and a handgun.

"They were all supposed to have been going to Belle Isle, and he jumped in the car with his friend, and the guys just started shooting them," said Patricia.

"These kids out here just killing... one another, it's just senseless to me."

Sources told Fox 2 the gunmen even started shooting at people they thought might have witnessed the attack, then they took off leaving Robert and his friend, Peso, to die.
