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.

When do the baby pictures of the assailant come out?
Oh, this is AWFUL! A beautiful young teenage boy, CUT DOWN IN THE PRIME OF HIS LIFE, by those horrible GUNS! The shooter of this child NEEDS TO BE PROSECUTED! NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE! NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE! NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE!
THE "STAND YOUR GROUND" LAW MUST GO!
If Obama had a son, he’d look like this kid.
Another promising NFL career cut short.....
But they lived in one of those evil 'gated' condo complexes, so . . .
There’s a photo at the link in which he looks about 9 years old. Oh dear.
1. Does he look more or less like Obama’s son than Trayvon?
2. Did he have a bag of Skittles on him?
3. Is the shooter white or half-white?
“Get out and give it up?” Well, the car’s occupant gave up a well-deserved bullet for the lil hoodlum
The thug had a gun, and would likely have killed somebody real soon if he hadn't been cut down first.
ATTN: Jesse Jackass and Al Shaptoon.....pick up the BLACK courtesy phone.
Proof that being stupid can make you dead....
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
The perp could have been any age. He was just a threat with a gun.
Kudos to the resident for the courage to fight back - and win!
This kid was only following Obama’s example...and trying to redistribute some of Whitey’s wealth!
So here we have a thirteen year old with a cocked and loaded gun, trying to rob two people. The adults who raised him should be ashamed.
I’m sure that the Reverends Jackson, Sharpton and Farrakhan are enroute to Birmingham.
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.
The White zone is for black protesting and protesting only...
If you ever see the name Cortez in a story, you can be assured it is not the Spaniard.
Now depending on the ethnicity of the shooter, there will either be a) retaliation against the shooter’s “peoples” or
b) “Lil Tez” ain’t have no gun and was shot for nothing.
Armed, Law Abiding Folks out there, part of defending yourself successfully is planning for the aftermath of the shooting as well as the actual shooting itself. As self defense shootings go up, you are going to experience more and more of what police in the US do everyday.
You may be excoriated in the media by families and self appointed social activists (reverends, pastors, and other “clergy”) who will try the same arguments against you as they do the police.
You are racist.
You didn’t have to shoot to kill, you could have shot in the air, or in his leg.
My son was only playing.
My son was getting his life together, was getting his GDE, and was going to marry his eight year fiance’.
I know my son, and he don’t carry no gun.
Then there may be protests outside your home and the whole bit.
And all this before any legal actions.
Don’t be frightened into changing your mind about being armed, just know the likely consequences.
The article says it’s going to be classified as justifiable homicide. Do you have some additional information?
Doncha' just love these anti-Christian, racially confining first names.
They used to joke about Chinese names came from throwing a piece of aluminum at a wall, and making the noise the baby's first name.
I guess all you have to do nowadays is mumble-mouth something, throw in a couple "q"s or maybe an accent after the name's first letter and BINGO, you have a stereotyping first name that lasts longer than a tattoo. Just put a Jaqures, or a Makita, or Jamaquita, or Durell, or Jamalita on a resume and see what pile that goes on.
So, instead of being at home (where he belonged) perhaps doing homework, or reading a good book, or learning how to play an instrument, or helping his (more than likely) single mom around the house, this child is now dead.
I hope he wasn't shot by a "white" guy, or the Jackson-Sharpton express will be down there to start trouble and declare a St. Jaqures Day.
One reason is money...this killing saved the justice system a fortune and saved the U.S. taxpayer the roughly $50++ grand a year that his eventual incarceration would have cost.
It’s a shame that in over 50 years of diverse schooling, some still can’t master the English language. If it isn’t the schools, must be stupid students.
According to the info in this article the Mom saw him leave in a SUV about 9 pm Friday and it wasn’t until about 3:30 pm Sat that the BPD got in touch with her with the news.
She was probably having Contractions when Contractions were taught:>)
Live like a thug, die like a thug, with a hole in your chest cryin’ for your mama.
