A mother asked the person responsible in her son's death to come forward on Sunday.
Rosa Bradley said that her son, Gerald Holland, was shot in the back of the head while walking along Ontario Street and East 24th Avenue on Saturday. Holland, 18, died a short time later at The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center.
Bradley said that her son was a gift.
"He was a fun kid," Bradley said. "He loved to make people laugh."
Bradley said that Holland was on track to get his high school diploma from Linden McKinley High School.
"He's come a long way," Bradley said. "He was born with ADHD."
Bradley described her son as a self-taught artist, who was thinking of joining the U.S. Air Force. Those dreams ended suddenly, when he was struck by gunfire while walking with a friend.
"His friend says shots came out of nowhere, he saw his friend Gerald on the ground," Bradley said.
Police said that three men started yelling at Holland and his friend for no reason when shots were fired.
Bradley, a mother of six, must now bury her oldest child.
"They took a great person out of this world," Bradley said. "I mean I know he would have been an amazing man because he was already an amazing young man."
Holland leaves behind his mother along with three sisters and two brothers.
