There are several new angles tonight to the tragic shooting death of an eight year old boy in Tuskegee.

Investigators have now spoken to the young victim's mother, while continuing the search for the teenager believed to be the shooter. It turns out the young suspect comes from a troubled background and so did the victim.

Two days have passed since Keith Thomas went on the run, suspected of shooting and killing eight year old Andre Johnson. The search is complicated because Thomas doesn't live a typical teenager's life.

Tuskegee Police Chief Lester Patrick is familiar with Thomas.

"He's not a normal 16 year old. He doesn't attend school. He's out constantly on the street and he has been in trouble, actually, he's currently under indictment for an assault charge," Patrick said.
