A customer of the Georgia O’Reilly Auto Parts store was shot more than once by an employee of the store on Thursday afternoon.
The incident happened at a store in Clayton County, the victim’s mother confirmed. Willie Heath III, 25, was taken to hospital but died of his injuries.
Health’s mother, Angelique Heath, said her son went to the store to buy coolant for his car but never took it home.
“My last words to my child, he told me, ‘God got me,'” says Angelique Heath.
Heath said he spoke to people at the store and said an employee from another location came to the store to fetch some batteries.
“He pushed my child and never said, ‘I’m sorry,'” Heath added.
Her son and the employee start arguing, and then the employee pulls out a gun, WSBTV News reported.
He said his son ran outside, and the employee shot through the shop window.
Heath’s father, Willie Heath Jr., also said the employee went outside and shot his son several more times.
“We have to be accountable for the employees who took my son’s life,” said Willie Heath Jr.
Raheem Titre, 26, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault.
Heath’s mother wanted to know why Titre had a gun while working.
“The security guard told me, ‘That’s why they hired me. I brought a gun here. No employee should have a gun, “he said.
