19-year-old gunned down at Union City gas station was 'loveable and hardworking', family says

A Mableton family wants answers after their loved one was shot and killed at a Union City gas station.

Police say Larry Potts' girlfriend was in the car with him and watched the whole thing.

According to the police report, Lariya Anderson told police a man in a white Kia had been following the couple. They pulled into the QT because it is well lit and open to the public.

Surveillance video shows Potts getting out of his car and walking toward the store entrance when he is confronted by the man who got out of the white Kia. The two have words and the man opened fire on Potts. The 19-year-old returned fire, but the shooter got away.
