This past weekend a mother in suburban Atlanta was watching the news when she saw her son in a surveillance photo. The story was all about a fatal carjacking that happened in the area of South West Atlanta. According to WSB-TV, 24-year-old father of two, Terrick Matthews was sleep in his car when they shot him in the neck.

Police believes Matthews was willing to do whatever the carjackers wanted, but they still killed him. Detective Ebony Johnson mentioned that the 15-year-old along with his mother turned himself in. She said, “It wasn’t necessary for them to take his life. They were in compliance. They were getting out of the vehicle at that point.” She is urging anyone with information to please come forward. Johnson said, “Think about it as being one of your family members that lost their life. You would want them to be brought to justice.”

A warrant has been issued for the second suspect and police need help identifying the third suspect. The mother of the victim mentioned that her son had not only started a new job, but just hours before his death called to wish her a happy birthday. He leaves behind two young kids.

  1. If our hearts are truly set on cleaning up our neighborhoods, then we must be prepared to do the hard work. This was one of those hard things to do, yet the only right thing to do. Two mothers grieving……how horribly sad.

  2. I KNOW THAT WAS THE MOST DIFFICULT THING SHE HAVE TO DO IS TURN HER SON IN. GOOD JOB THAT MOTHER RAISE HER KIDS THE BEST SHE KNOW HOW. HER SON KNOW WHAT HE WAS DOING, SO SHE HAD KNOW OTHER CHOICE. I TOLD MY KIDS IF THEY EVER WOULD DO THE OPPISITE THE WAY HOW I RAISE THEM. IN DO SOME STUPID SHT. I WOULD TURN THEY ASS IN TOO. I DO BELIEVED KNOW ONE SHOULD TAKE A LIFE. GOD GIVE YOU LIFE AND WHO ARE ANYONE TO TAKE A LIFE WHAT GOD IS GIVING YOU.

    That took a lot of courage For a mother to turn her son into authorities. My heart goes out to the family that was killed.

    • Yes, a lot of parents these days are scared of their own children. The mother was very courageous, and thank God, although the son was a thug, he feared his own mother.
