Milton police looking for three men in connection to teen's murder

MILTON, GA (CBS46) -

Milton police released surveillance of three men wanted in connection with a teen's murder. There is a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

On March 12, Christopher Walker, 19, was shot and killed in his driveway in Milton. Police said before going home, Walker and his friend went to Taco Bell by the North Point Mall in Alpharetta. The restaurant surveillance video clearly shows the two ordering. It also shows the three men police want to speak with about Walker's murder.

The friend said three men were eyeing them and it was an uncomfortable situation. Officers said the three men noticed Walker's gold chain. The trio followed Walker home in an attempt to rob him, according to police. Officers said one man approached Walker in his driveway and shot him in the head, killing him.

"This is out of the norm. It seems like a random crime, which makes it even more important to put these guys behind bars," said Milton Police Sgt. Jason Griffin.

Walker's parents said their lives stopped that night.

"It was senseless and it happened in our own yard, that's what infuriates me," said Gregory Walker, Christopher Walker's father.

The Walkers moved to Milton because it's a safe community. They said keeping their sons safe and making sure they succeeded was always a priority.

"He was right where he was supposed to be and that invasion into the space he should feel most safe is unthinkable," said Christopher Walker's mother Mary Jo Walker.

The Walkers said their son was a dream child who worked part time and attended school full time.

"Good brother, good son, wonderful son," said Mary Jo Walker.

White ribbons hang throughout the neighborhood in Christopher Walker's memory. He was laid to rest on Monday.

His parents want everyone to take a good look at the faces of the three men shown in the surveillance video, but who they want people to remember is their son.

Anyone with information about the three men seen in the video should contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
