Atlanta police have charged 18-year-old Terrance Donell Hambrick with last month's robbery and shooting of Kenneth Hagen in Kirkwood.
Hagen, 55, was mowing his yard on Ridgedale Road when he allegedly was approached by the teen suspect, who asked for money and then shot Hagen three times in the torso. Hagan was taken to Grady Hospital, where he remained in critical condition for several days.
The crime was so random and pointless that community activists quickly organized an anti-crime rally in a nearby park, for which hundreds of people showed up to voice their outrage.
According to police, Hambrick was arrested last week for probation violation and has been in the DeKalb County jail since then. In the meantime, someone phoned in a tip to the Crime Stoppers tip line, leading the APD yesterday to charge Hambrick with aggravated battery, aggravated assault, criminal attempt to commit armed robbery, and theft by receiving a stolen car.
Suffice it to say, the kid's in a shitload of trouble.
Here's the final word from our friends at the APD:
The APD is appreciative of all the community support throughout this investigation. Although this case is not yet closed we are happy that we have been able to offer the family and the Kirkwood Community some closure in this case.
