BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Birmingham police say a 13-year-old robbery suspect was shot and killed by the person he tried to rob in Birmingham Friday night.

The Jefferson County Coroner's Office confirms the teen's identity as Jaqures Cortez Walker of Birmingham. He was a 7th grade student at Martha Gaskin Middle School and the quarterback for the football team, according to a family member.

BPD Sgt. Johnny Williams said the teen suspect approached a couple as they pulled into their home at the gated Skyview Condominiums in the 400 block of Skyview Drive around 11:10pm. Friday, April 27. Skyview Drive is off Robert Jemison Road. The suspect had a T-shirt over his face like a bandana and was holding a cocked and loaded gun, Williams said.

Police say the would-be robber approached the male occupant of the car and told him to "Get out and give it up." The man had his own gun in the car and shot the teenager. The teen ran a few feet, collapsed and died at the scene, Williams said.

The case was originally investigated as an unclassfied death but Williams says now it appears it could be investigated as justifiable homicide. The case has been handed over to the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office for review.

Jaqures' 19-year-old brother told Fox 6 that Jaqures was in the front yard of their home Friday night with some friends and told his family they were going to the store. The brother says Jaqures never came home.
