Gas Station Dispute Ends in Tragedy as Atlanta Dad is Fatally Shot in Front of His Kids

A family is mourning the tragic loss of a young man, Jotavious Favors, who was shot and killed in front of his two children. The Fulton County Medical Examiner identified the 25-year-old victim, and a relative shared heartbreaking details of his final moments.

According to Favors’ sister, who wished to remain anonymous, the incident occurred when her brother entered a gas station to make a purchase. A confrontation unfolded inside the store with two individuals, resulting in the fatal shooting of the 25-year-old.

The Atlanta Police Department provided details of the incident at the Chevron gas station on Campbellton Rd SW on November 15, 2023, around 10:31 pm. Officers found Favors with gunshot wounds, and despite Grady EMS’s arrival, he was pronounced dead. Homicide investigators are actively working to determine the circumstances surrounding the tragic incident.

Favors’ two children were in the car, waiting for their father to return when the conflict escalated. The sister revealed that the assailants committed the crime in front of the children, leaving the family to grapple with the trauma. Favors was unarmed and unaware of the danger, simply entering the store for a purchase.

Surveillance footage from the Chevron gas station showed two men walking through the store, and Atlanta Police are seeking at least two individuals of interest. Preliminary evidence suggests the shooting resulted from a dispute, and authorities believe the suspects are driving a blue Jeep Compass.

Favors’ sister condemned the perpetrators as “cowards” and described the crime as “heartless” and “senseless.” Emphasizing her brother’s lack of awareness and absence of a weapon, she expressed deep grief over the tragedy.

Atlanta Police urge anyone with information to contact CrimeStoppers Atlanta at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or submit tips anonymously online, with the possibility of a reward of up to $2,000 for valuable information.
