Police have identified a 15-year-old boy who was slain near his home in Prince George’s County.

Police say Charles Walker Jr. was a student at Suitland High School. He was found suffering from trauma to the body on Monday afternoon in the 4000 block of 28th Avenue in Hillcrest Heights, just two blocks from his home.

Walker was taken to a hospital, where he died.

Police have not specified the cause of death or disclosed a possible motive.

The victim’s aunt, Laurice Massey, told WRC-TV that the teen was heading to a bus stop when he was attacked.

She said he might have been killed for his shoes.

The Prince George’s County school system released a statement calling the death “senseless.”
