Charles Michael Walker Jr. was only 15 years old. He attended Suitland High School. Walker lived right down the street from where he was shot.
Note: MyFOXDC.com says that the shooting actually happened at the boy’s home. There is conflicting information on the exact location.
There is no publicly known suspect at this time. Police only say they have received a lot of tips.
Some believe that Charles Michael Walker was targeted for a nice pair of sneakers that he had reportedly just bought. As stupid as that sounds to the average person, it is not unprecedented for teens to become robbery victims for thugs who want their high-priced sneakers.
