ORLANDO, Fla. - A 15-year-old boy shot and killed Saturday evening in Orlando has been identified as Corey Jones, according to police.
Investigators say the shooting happened just before 6 p.m. on Saturday in the 800 block of Grand Street, near Grand Avenue Elementary School.
When officers arrived at the scene, they said they found Jones with a gunshot wound.
FOX 35 Orlando spoke with Jones' aunt Sunday.
She said according to her nephew's dad, Jones and a friend were in the park near the school when they were approached by another group.
A fight or argument started before Jones’ dad said someone in the other group shot his son.
"For some unknown reason, someone decided to take the life of a 15-year-old boy," Jones' aunt, Krystal Petry, said. "No parent should have to go through that. No parent should have to bury their child, especially not in a situation like this."
Orlando police have not yet said if a shooter has been identified or if anyone is in custody.
"I don’t understand why people can’t teach their kids conflict resolution," Petry said. "If you have a problem, talk it out, and if you feel you need to be violent, throw a punch for God's sakes. Whoever taught these kids that pulling out a gun is a solution, it’s not."
The family set up a GoFundMe page to help with funeral costs. You can help here.
