Josh Grey, 23, was shot and killed last Monday afternoon, the day a tornado outbreak spread across Central Virginia.

"It was the day of the tornado and I called [Josh's mom] and said did you talk to Josh today,” Josh's dad said, who asked WTVR to hide his identity, said. "He had joined some app called ‘Letgo.'"

Similar to Craigslist, Letgo is an online peer-to-peer app that helps people meet up to buy and sell items locally.

WTVR sources said Josh Grey was lured to Mechanicsville Turnpike and shot dead.

Richmond police responded to a convenience store at the intersection of Mechanicsville Turnpike and Carver Street for the report of a person down at approximately 1:36 p.m. on Monday, September 17.

A wounded Grey crawled into a nearby convenience store and died. Police have released surveillance images of a suspect wanted in Grey's death.

His family said Grey had dreams of modeling, living by the water, and hanging out with his younger brothers.

"I just hope that everyone that sees this video tonight, that if there's someone out there that knows something, they can reach out to police and help them solve this crime," his grieving father said. "It's a senseless tragic crime. It never should have happened."

Grey's family has set up a scholarship in his name.

Grey was buried Sunday. His mom and dad said he must have been smiling down from heaven as his beloved Washington Redskins won that day.

Authorities said two teenage suspects have been arrested after a man was fatally shot during a robbery outside a Richmond convenience store last week.

Police said Tyshawn T. Andrews, 15, of the 1300 block of Coalter Street and Demeco T. Pressey-Robertson, 17, of the 2400 block of North 23rd Street were arrested earlier this week in the murder of 23-year-old Joshua A. Grey.

Police said both suspects were charged with murder, attempted robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Since the juveniles were charged with murder in the commission of robbery or attempted robbery; they could face capital murder.

“Prosecutors really exercise discretion when they decide what’s going to be a death penalty case and there’s lots of factors that are taken into consideration including family wishes, evidence and the strength of the case. So, this could be a death penalty case,” said CBS 6 legal analyst Todd Stone.
