It happened on Freedom Drive, behind Liberty Church. A teenager killed his friend with a shotgun. His parents were not at home when it happened. A large sofa was removed from the scene.

Such a tragic end to a young mans life. Rob Jr. was a joy to be around and had so much going for him in life. Parents and family are great support system and he had so much potential for the future with sports and life.

It is such a tragedy, the other young man was Lil-Robs best friend. Two families have been changed forever in a blink of an eye. Please pray for the other family and young man. I had the privilege to train and work with both of these great young men and great baseball players.

Lil-Rob was one of our players and was a great inspiration to his teammates and coaching staff.

Please pray for the Taylor Family they are very hurt.

I want you all to know that Big Rob told me this morning and told me with tears in his eyes and hurt in his heart, that he called the other young man and told him "I love you, and I forgive you".

Please let the healing process continue, rumors are just that rumors. It was a tragic accident.

I love both the young men.

It is a tragedy indeed. A tragedy that can be avoided by not letting a 13 year old boy have a loaded shotgun? Keep it in a gun safe when it isn't being used. That's what most people do anyway.

No Need to point fingers. This is a tragedy!! Accidents happen every day we all hope they dont happen to us but sometimes thats just the way life goes. I hope and pray that God wrap his loving Arms around this family and all the people this may affect and give them the comfort they need during there time of loss...

This is indeed a tragedy, my son was accidentally shot and killed by his friend. My son had over 500 people at his funeral and had touched many peoples lives, our family will forever mourn his loss, our family, our community and his friends will never forget him. I also mourn the fact that ga has laws that say it's ok to have your double barrel shotgun, loaded, and under your bed, that doing that would not be negligent in any way even though you have a 14 year old and an infant residing with you. That that shotgun can be in an unlocked case under your bed and you are not going to be found to have any responsibility in the fact that your 14 year old son used it to accidentally shoot and kill someone, anyone. They tell me there is no negligence involved on the parents part. If the situation were reversed, I would accept my part in the negligent act that occured because of my part in not locking my gun, but the law says different. Rob was a bright shining star in our world and because of the laws that allow these tragedies to go unpunished, he's gone forever to us and the world, he would have done great things....he's our angel in the outfield. I'm sorry if i sound angry, but i am, at the gun laws that allow this to continue to happen, this happens everyday in our world, how many precious children do we have to lose before something is done to make the laws safer for children....HOW MANY???
wow

KEEP 5 ALIVE I am so very sorry for your loss. Nothing can be said to ease that pain. It is tragic. Big Boy is right, this should not be turned into a circus like some of the other topics have.

Not trying to turn anything into a circus...i'm expressing my views. My problem is with the gun laws in our state that allow loaded unlocked guns in residences with children. Put yourself in my position...do YOU have children? What if it were you, because it can be, who's child was taken from them with a shotgun blast to his head. How would you feel about our laws then? Really, try to put yourself in my position, then we can talk.

I don't need a law to tell me not to keep a loaded unlocked gun in my home with children.

Apparently other people do, i thank god for people like you who are being responsible but there many who are not.....and there are no laws out there to protect our children, if you check stats then you'll see this happens to at least one family a day....that's too many..a simple three dollar trigger lock would have saved my son and so many others, that's all...so sad
wow

It is very sad, I agree. A tragedy.

However, you cannot force someone to buy a trigger guard. The flip side of that thinking is, would you want a law to tell you that you can't own a hunting knife unless it is locked up?

We need less laws telling us how we can live inside our home and more rational thinking by the person that lives there.

God bless you.

keep 5 aive, i don't think anyone was saying you were turning it into a circus....wow was saying what i said earlier to fithy hick about not turning this into a circus like most posts out of respect for yal's family...i think wow was saying he agreed with what i was saying, think instead of calling me fat boy he used big boy.....what has happened to your family is a tragic event that we don't understand and don't want to....i think most of us who have a heart have anything but compassion for all involved i have 3 boys and one is the same age as rob, and he has played ball against rob...we have a local travel ball team that has been together for 5 years and we are looking for a way to honor rob this season if thats ok with the family.
