Police say the suspects first attempted to break into a neighbor’s vehicle who had her child in the car with her.

They were unsuccessful, and at some point turned to Sean, who had just walked outside to grab a case of water from the family’s car.

“After he hadn’t come in for a while, I went outside and saw him lying in my neighbor’s yard — moaning, groaning, really incoherent,” John Toomey said.

The 15-year-old was shot twice. Police rushed him to the hospital in their patrol car and he later succumbed to his injuries.
