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.
