The family of Larry Ingram, Jr. says he was a good man and father. And that he just wanted to create a better life for his sons. He never got the chance. Rock Hill, SC police says he was shot to death inside an apartment early Monday. (Nov. 14)
The twist to the story: Ingram was shot allegedly by four teenagers — two of which were his sons. Because of their ages, no names have been published. But authorities say three 14-year-olds and a 15-year-old are charged with Ingram’s murder. All teens are male and two of them are Ingram’s own sons.
Police believe the teens conspired to kill the 38-year-old man after Ingram had tried to discipline them. According to Ingram’s sister, he had recently moved to Rock Hill to give his sons better opportunities. Police say the teens killed Ingram inside the apartment.
Police say they were called to the apartment on Paces River Avenue off Celanese Road after 12 a.m. Monday. The report was for shots of gunfire. When they arrived, they found Ingram inside. He had been shot more than once and died at the scene.
According to WSOC-TV, police say, “The juveniles were angry about (a) discipline that occurred earlier in the day.” The four teen suspects are facing charges of murder and criminal conspiracy to commit murder.
