Ga. cops search for man who shot teen after Halloween prank

The Fulton County Medical Examiner's office says the teen, Tivarus King, died as he was being taken to Grady Memorial Hospital

ATLANTA — Authorities say a driver enraged after his Mercedes was splattered with eggs on Halloween fatally shot a 17-year-old in the neck and leg as he tried to run away.

Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones says the driver confronted the teen and fired 10 shots at him around 8 p.m. Sunday. The Fulton County Medical Examiner's office says the teen, Tivarus King, died as he was being taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

Investigating officers spotted a car fitting the vehicle's description and detained the driver. But Atlanta Police spokesman Curtis Davenport says that person was arrested on traffic charges that were not linked to the shooting.

He said officers are investigating whether King threw the eggs and are searching for suspects in the shooting on the northwest side.
