SPARKS, GA (WALB) -

30 year old Adam Robinson was shot to death in his car in a grassy area in the 600 block of Rhone St. in Sparks around 8:30 p.m. Sunday. 

Robinson's mother said he was at his house with his girlfriend and his two daughters when he got a phone call from someone telling him to come to the 600 block of Rhone St. A short time later, she got a call, but that time it was from police telling her Adam had been shot.

"They wouldn't let us see him. We wanted to talk to him and they wouldn't let us get near the scene," said Diane Robinson, Adam's mother. "They wouldn't give us any information."

Tuesday, all the GBI would confirm was that an autopsy was scheduled on the body Wednesday morning and that they were still interviewing witnesses. "He wasn't perfect, but he was a kind person and he had no enemies to my knowledge. I want justice done. Nobody should be able to just take a life," Diane Robinson said.

Calvin Slade said Adam was like a brother to him and he, too, wanted justice more than anything else. "I was raised up around him. His father helped raise me. I just wanna see justice served," Slade emphasized. "He never did anything to anybody. He was a loving person. So, whoever you are, if you done it come forward."

Robinson's mother said she believed she knew who was involved in her son's death and she said those people had been bragging about it on social media, but as of Tuesday the GBI said they did not have any suspects.
