An Indianapolis woman who signed onto Facebook Saturday found herself faced with the heartbreaking news no mother should ever have to endure.

Her 15-year-old son, Anthony, had been shot dead and people were writing on her son’s Facebook wall. That was the agonizing moment she found out.

“Someone put on Facebook, ‘RIP Anthony, I will miss you’ and then the phone calls started coming in to my house and cell phone,” his mother, Nikkita Milledge said.

Her son, a star high school football player, was shot twice outside an Indianapolis apartment complex just before 1 p.m.

But investigators now believe that he and another 19-year-old were attempting a robbery on Saturday afternoon when he was killed.

Anthony was fatally shot twice, police believe by the older teen.

“I did everything to keep him busy but it wasn’t enough,” the distraught mother said.

Anthony played on a youth football league at the state level where he was placed second several times. At home he had four brothers and sisters, they were very close.

His younger brother described him as someone everyone could look up to and rely on. The mother’s best efforts proved to be not enough, however, with the Indianapolis area that her family calls home having had four shooting deaths this month alone, as WTHR reports.

“We all need to take a stand as mothers who have lost children,” said his mother. The 19-year-old, since identified as Brice Price, was arrested Tuesday for Warren’s death.

Price faces charges of murder and conspiracy to commit robbery.
