Balloons fill the sky over Macon’s Grant Cemetery Thursday. The cemetery, off the beaten path in East Macon is the final resting place for Sanchez Robinson, the Macon man found shot dead inside a car at a Chambers Road apartment complex back in March.

Friends and family come to celebrate Robinson's 27th birthday and have a message for the person, or people, responsible for his death.

"The people who did this hurt a lot of people, you know, hurt a lot of people man, and you know I wake up in the middle of the night thinking about my baby," said Robinson’s father Nathan.

Robinson's family says he obtained a GED from Central Georgia Technical College, and often worked out of town construction jobs. They say he leaves behind a fiancé and an unborn child.

"Sanchez was a loving caring, kind, and friendly person," said Sheena Cummings, Robinson’s cousin-in-law.

A day after the shooting, three people were taken into custody, and one, Dequantez Harris was charged with Robinson's murder. Family members describe Harris as Robinson's best friend, but say they can't think of a motive for the killing besides robbery.

The Bibb County Sheriff's Office is also looking for Antwaun Smith, a Macon man being labeled as a person of interest.

"We're trying to heal, my aunt she wants closure, and also the family and friends want the same, so we will fight until we receive the justice that we want," Cummings said.

"We looking for you, you know, y'all looking for them, the police looking for them, I’m looking for them, we looking,” said Nathan Robinson. “I want something to happen to these people, I don't even know who did it, but I want something to happen to whoever did it man, they need to pay for what they did.”
