PAULDING COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

A community came together to remember a 12-year-old Paulding County boy police say died at the hands of his father.

Crossroad Neighborhood Grille held a fundraiser Thursday night to help with funeral costs for Eric Forbes. Those who came out said what happened to him was terrible.

"He died in a very tragic way and we want to make sure that he gets a proper burial, and has everything that is needed," said Mitze McDonald.

Police say Eric's father, Shayaa Forbes abused his son. Police have charged him with child cruelty. He could face more serious charges after investigators complete their autopsy.
