Family begs for answers in shooting death of their son in Clayton County

- A family is pleading for answers. Their son, who they say loved life more than anyone, was gunned down and police don't know who did it.  

Clayton County Police say 20-year-old Dakota Farr was in his car with two young women on Hillside Drive in Stockbridge.  Investigators say they were parked in a driveway when someone opened fire on them.  All three were rushed to the hospital.  The girls had minor injuries.  Dakota Farr didn't survive. 

"Please, please, anybody if you know anything, please come forward.  Just think of if it was your child," said Dakota's mom, Amber Rigsby.

Dakota's family says he loved life, was involved in his church, and never met a stranger. 

"He was the center of attention in any room he walked into.  He just had a charisma that drew people to him," said his aunt, Anita Pryor. 

It's been more than a week since the deadly shooting.  Dakota has been laid to rest, but his family is still struggling for answers.  They want to know who killed him, and why. 

"Nothing is ever going to completely heal, he will always be missed, my life will be changed forever but I feel like I would have more closure if I know who done this and why," said Rigsby. 

This is a Crime Stoppers case and a reward of up to $2,000 is being offered.  You can remain anonymous.  If you know something call Clayton County Police or contact Crime Stoppers at CrimeStoppersAtlanta.org.
