Investigators said two groups met on June 5 in Red Springs to fight one another.

During the fight, shots were fired and a bullet hit AJ while he was sitting the backseat of his mother’s vehicle, according to deputies.

“This was a very serious matter in which an innocent child was unwittingly taken to an incident which led to the child’s death. We intend to bring to justice every person involved in the riot,” Wilkins said.

Galbreath drove him to the Red Springs Police Department, where people performed CPR on him until an ambulance took him to Southeastern Medical Center where he died from his injuries.

Donavan Locklear is accused of firing the shot that killed AJ. He was arrested on June 28 and charged with second-degree murder.

The investigation is ongoing on the case. Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office at 910-671-3170.
