Abaas Mohamed

Age 17

Stone Mountain, Georgia

Police found him outside the apartment

The small town of Stone Mountain, Georgia, appears serene. Surrounded by woodland, it is named after the 1,686-foot mountain on its outskirts. Thousands flock here every year to see a historic carving on the monolith’s northern face, Georgia’s most-visited attraction.

Yet the community is burdened by a complicated past. Its famous tourist attraction is also a controversial Confederate monument. The town suffers from one of the highest violent crime rates in America.

On Nov. 11, 2018, Abaas Mohamed, 17, joined a growing list of victims. Police found his body in front of the Sterling Chase apartment complex after he had been fatally shot.
