Family members said Samuel was on his way to the grocery store when he was gunned down.

“He was a good kid," said Don Joseph, the victim's brother. "He’s not a gang member or in any type a situation that would cause that.”

Samuel was described as an "inspiration" to his neighbors and a regular at the YMCA where he played basketball with other kids.

Police said Amilcar and another person were caught on surveillance photos and video near the scene.

They were believed to have arrived and fled in a car, police said.
