No one wants to get robbed. Most people don’t want to die over possessions that are replaceable though there are some that don’t want to “give it up”. To get shot during a robbery when not resisting is a hard bullet to take. To pass away from that shooting is even worse.
Christian Broder was robbed July 7 leaving a wedding reception at Atlanta’s Capital City Club. The country club setting is not the usual backdrop for a murder to occur.
That evening, while Broder and his group were waiting for an Uber car to arrive, death pulled up in white Dodge Charger.
A man exited the Charger from the passenger side, produced a gun and robbed the group of their valuables.
As the suspect started to return to the car, Broder followed him, possibly asking to get his I.D. back.
The suspect shot Broder in stomach, got in the car and left the scene.
Broder condition remained critical as he fought for his life.
On July 13, police arrested Jayden Myrick, 17, in connection with the armed robbery. He was charged with three counts of aggravated assault, one count of aggravated battery and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
On July 21, the family of Broder announced that he passed away.
Broder was married with a 9-month-old daughter.
The Atlanta police have upgraded the crime to murder and will add additional charges to Myrick.
A GoFundMe page has been created to assist the Broder family.
