A 16-year-old mother reportedly took her baby along when she shot and killed a man who was trying to sell a Playstation 4 video game on Craigslist.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that 28-year-old Daniel John Zeitz had met with the 16-year-old girl and 20-year-old Nathaniel Vivian on Friday night after listing his video game on Craigslist.
Police said that Vivian began to struggle with Zeitz when the couple tried to rob him. During the struggle, the 16-year-old girl fire a single shot. The bullet passed through Vivian’s hand, and then hit Zeitz in the chest, causing his death.
Police caught up with the couple when they went to a hospital to treat the gunshot wound to Vivian’s hand. A gun was later recovered from their car.
“Brookhaven police were at the hospital interviewing the injured man, who told them he was a victim of a crime in Brookhaven, but later told them he was shot while he and his girlfriend were at the Legends of Dunwoody Apartments to rob a man of his PS4 video gaming system that was advertised on Craigslist,” Sandy Springs police Sgt. Ron Momon said, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“Detectives also learned that the juvenile’s infant child, approximately 16 months, was in the back seat of the car during the robbery and shooting,” he added.
The couple remained in custody as of Monday morning. The child had been placed with her relatives.
