‘Sadly on Tuesday night, 23-month-old Deandre Vega joined the 7,416 people that have been killed by gun violence since Newtown when his grandfather, 39-year-old Luis Efrain Torres, set out to kill another family member’.

‘Just before 10:00 pm on Tuesday an altercation erupted between Torres and little Deandre’s father, Rochell McCoy, in Torres’ driveway in Lilburn, Georgia’.

‘During the argument Torres pulled a gun and fired shots at McCoy, inadvertently striking Deandre’.

‘After hearing gunshots neighbors called 911; when first responders arrived they found the child laying in the driveway and rushed him to a nearby medical center where he later died’.

‘Torres spoke to Channel 2 Action News, from the Gwinnett County Detention Center on Wednesday where he is being held without bond. He is claiming self-defense’:

“I was arguing with him and him with me,” Torres explained, “And he threw me to the floor and pushed me and hit me.”

When Torres realized what happened, he ran to the child’s side, he said. He said he’s devastated by his grandson’s death. “I love my family, but I lost everything.”

‘Torres was arrested at the scene and charged with aggravated assault and murder. Cpl. Jake Smith, of the Gwinnett County police, confirmed that the Deandre was not the intended victim’.

“At this time, we don’t think he intended to actually shoot that child,” Smith said at the scene Tuesday night. “But we do believe he was trying to shoot someone else that was here.”
