BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
Birmingham police say a 13-year-old robbery suspect was shot and killed by the person he tried to rob in Birmingham Friday night.
The Jefferson County Coroner's Office confirms the teen's identity as Jaqures Cortez Walker of Birmingham. He was a 7th grade student at Martha Gaskin Middle School and the quarterback for the football team, according to a family member.
BPD Sgt. Johnny Williams said the teen suspect approached a couple as they pulled into their home at the gated Skyview Condominiums in the 400 block of Skyview Drive around 11:10pm. Friday, April 27. Skyview Drive is off Robert Jemison Road. The suspect had a T-shirt over his face like a bandana and was holding a cocked and loaded gun, Williams said.
Police say the would-be robber approached the male occupant of the car and told him to "Get out and give it up." The man had his own gun in the car and shot the teenager. The teen ran a few feet, collapsed and died at the scene, Williams said.

As long as he was carrying candy, any crime he was attempting is now meaningless.
Good riddance. Its best to get rid of criminals like that early.
Someone must have left the ‘gate’ open.
If Obama had a son, hed look like this kid (Jaqures).
_____________________________________________________________ROFLMAO. I love it. I wish Hannity, O’Reilly or someone had the balls to say that on the air. Rush would be the most likely one to do it. Rub their faces in it for rushing to judgment on the Trayvon Marting thing.
If Trayvon had a son, he’d have looked liked Jaqures.
The shorter the criminal career, the better...
This kid was only following Obamas example...and trying to redistribute some of Whiteys wealth!
Another one-liner worthy of a mention by Sean, O’Reilly or Rush.
bump for later this is going be Skittles part 2.
I thought this was a parody.
They are really going to try it.
They are geniunely going to try to make this little robber-thug-bitch into another Trayvon.
This is the attempt to make all self-defense illegal and immoral, so the enemy can pick on us like vultures, with no chance of being hurt for their thuggery.
Au contraire, Laz.
(A little French lingo there to show I bear no malice towards froggies.)
The ‘Stand Your Ground’ law must stay!
These creatures of the night come out of the mist like zombies looking for some hapless person to intimidate, maim or kill. A shot to the head not only ends the beginning of a career, but protects the victim from bodily harm or death.
These ‘hoodie’ characters are going to continue in greater numbers as the Obozo depression deepens. When the new president comes on board it will take him a long time to get this sinking ship of state to stop taking on water. These characters will get more desperate, especially if their influx of goobermint cash dries up or eases.
Street crime will flourish and the only thing a few of us will have to protect us and ours is our weapon.
seriesly, wtf ?
If you can plug them before they get much experience, it is best for multiple reasons.
“I loved you, now you gone”
It would surprise neither me nor anyone else here, sadly.
Now You gone?.....Must have skipped English class the day that contractions were taught.
>>3. Is the shooter white or half-white?
Perhaps he is a “white” caucasian.
