One suspect was wearing a black hoodie at the time of the murder, while the other wore a grey hoodie. Both wore basketball-style shorts, Gary police said.
Police confirmed two men, described to be in their early teens to late 20s, are known in the area where the teenager was shot and killed.
The boy’s mother continued:
They killed my son over nothing. They didn’t even get the gaming system. They didn’t even get the Xbox so why did they have to shoot him?
I hope you feel the pain that I feel right now. I want you to live with this the rest of your life.
Our thoughts are with Johnny’s family at this difficult time.
Rest in peace, Johnny.
