(Scroll down for video) A man was shot and killed in front of his family after winning a large sum of money.
20-year-old Craigory Burch Jr., of Georgia, who worked as a forklift driver, recently won $434,272 in a lottery, and now police are investigating his murder.
His girlfriend, Jasmine Hendricks, said that their door was blown open by gun shots and three masked armed men entered.
The men demanded money. Hendricks said that her boyfriend, who was in bed at the time, threw his pants at the thieves.
However, after realizing that his wallet was not in the pants, the thieves shot Burch, killing him instantly. Burch and his girlfriend welcomed their baby boy just 3 weeks before his death.
Hendricks said that her boyfriend begged the victims not to kill him in front of his girlfriend and their kids. “Please don’t do it in front of my kids and my old lady. Please don’t do that bro. I’ll give you my bank card,” he begged, according to Hendricks.
Police said that they got some tips and are investigating possible suspects, but they would not release more details of their investigation.
