Family of father killed outside Buckhead bar pleads for gunman to come forward

Family and friends of a father of two gathered in Buckead to celebrate his life after he was tragically gunned down outside a popular bar.

Sean Mobley was often at Hole in the Wall to promote his music career, and last Saturday, Atlanta Police said Mobley got into a verbal altercation with three men. That altercation ended in Mobley being shot multiple times. He was rushed to the hospital but didn't make it.

The three suspects took off, and now Mobley's family says they won't give up until justice is served. 

At the gathering Saturday night, dozens of friends and family members came together to remember what a positive influence Mobley was and all the lives he impacted with his hard-working, yet fun demeanor.

"We don't understand how this could happen to someone who is so loved and respected in the community...just a senseless act," said Alexcia Cross, the mother of Mobley's six-year-old daughter.

Mobley leaves behind two young daughters and a tight-knit family who is still in shock over the sudden loss.

"It torments me because, as a father, you never want to think someone is harming your child," said Sean's father, Ronnie Mobley.

The mothers of Mobey's two little girls say Mobley was an incredibly caring, attentive father who always made his family his first priority. He worked full time to support his family and pursued music as a passion in his spare time.

"She thinks he's still coming home," said Destiny Dawson about Sean's youngest daughter. "She goes to the window every day and says 'Daddy I love you,'" said Dawson.

Cross said Mobley had his daughter's Valentine's Day gift purchased far in advance, and she began to cry when speaking of Mobley not being able to deliver the git himself.

"He was such a good father," Cross said. "They was planning a daddy-daughter dance. They were gonna wear matching outfits," Cross said of Mobley and his six-year-old daughter.

Atlanta Police have a video of three suspects they believe are responsible for Mobley's death. They believe the trio sped off in a red Nissan Altima. The family is pleading with the public to keep an eye out for the suspects and their car.

Mobley's father says he has one question for the person who pulled the trigger, when that person is found. "I want to look him in the face, it's my duty as a father to say 'Why did you kill my son? What was your reasoning?'...I want to know why you took him from all of us," said Ronnie Mobley.

Sean Mobley's funeral will be held Monday February 18, 2018. The family has started a GoFund Me to help cover expenses as well as start a fund to support his two young daughters.
