Police found James Bartley III suffering from a gunshot wound on July 29 in the 800 block of Hamilton Avenue. A woman told police that her child’s father, Sanders, shot Bartley while the couple was visiting a friend on South Park Drive.

Bartley told police he saw Sanders on a porch while riding his hoverboard, so he turned around. That’s when Sanders walked up to him and shot him and struck him in the head with the gun before running off.
