WARREN, Ohio- A 24-year-old man is gunned down at a gas station in Warren.

The father of the young man who broke down in tears at his loss, saying the senseless murders must stop. Richard C. Rollison III, told WFMJ that everyone who has been to his home has said his son didn't do anything to anyone. 

Rollison says this gun violence has got to stop, these kids have to recognize that life is too short.

He broke down in tears several times while talking about his loss. 

Rollision tells us from what he understands the people who did this tried to rob his son and when the 24-year-old was lying on the ground bleeding, they stole his son's car.

His son Richard Rollison IV died at Saint Elizabeth's hospital in his mom and dad's arms.

Rollison said his son was shot six times and doctors said they could not save him since he was struck so many times.
 
His mother Eva was crying and too distraught to talk about her only son but did say retaliation is not the answer.

She believes that her son is with Christ but feels empty inside.

Her son had a baby and another on the way. Funeral services are pending at Staton Borowski Funeral Home.

Warren police have several individuals or persons of interest they want to talk with.

Sources say the victim was able to identify his shooter.

Police have taken surveillance video from the Sunoco gas station on the corner of Tod and West Market Street where the murder happened.
