Nikkita Milledge was shocked when she logged on to Facebook Saturday afternoon to find multiple “R.I.P” postings on her 15-year-old son, Anthoney Warren’s profile. Shortly after her discovery, she received a heartbreaking phone call that her son had been shot and killed in broad daylight outside of an Indianapolis apartment complex.
“Someone put on Facebook, ‘RIP Anthony, I will miss you’ and then the phone calls started coming in to my house and cell phone,” Milledge told CNN.
Investigators believe that Warren and a 19-year-old accomplice Brice Price, were attempting a robbery when the teen was shot twice. It’s unclear what went wrong, but it’s believed that Price opened fire on Warren. Milledge, as to be expected, expressed that she is distraught over her son’s passing and that she tried her best to keep the high school football player on the right track.
“I did everything to keep him busy but it wasn’t enough,” she said.
“We all need to take a stand as mothers who have lost children,” she continued.
Price has been charged with murder and conspiracy to commit robbery.
