Two juveniles have been charged as adults with murder in Friday night’s shooting death of Anthony D. King, authorities said.
On Saturday night, 16-year-old William Clark (left) and 15-year-old Jeremiah Kelly (right) surrendered to the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office at 401 Walton Way to answer for the slaying, which took place on the 700 block of Crawford Avenue.
The 30-year-old victim appeared to be the victim of an attempted carjacking when he was shot in the chest. About 11 p.m. Friday, deputies were dispatched to Crawford Avenue and found King nearby on Barnes Lane in a white Cadillac Escalade that had struck a tree.
King was pronounced dead at Medical College of Georgia Hospital at 11:36 p.m., the coroner’s office said.
This is Richmond County’s 19th homicide of the year.
