Xavier Arnold - A robbery victim in Atlanta, Georgia

Xavier Arnold, age 21, died on December 26, 2013, at a hospital in Atlanta, Georgia.

Around 5:30 p.m. on December 26, Xavier and his girlfriend and a male friend were walking on a bicycle trail in the Kirkwood area of Atlanta. They wanted to take photos of some of the grafitti on the trail. They were approached by two young men (maybe teenagers) who were looking to pick a fight and then attempted to rob them.

Shots were fired and and Xavier was shot in the head and his male friend was shot in the leg. Both men were transported to a local hospital but Xavier tragically passed away.

A reward of up to $5,000.00 has been offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in this case. Anonymous tips can be phoned in to 404-577-8477 or submitted online at

Xavier graduated from Chamblee High School in 2010. He later enrolled in the Savannah College of Art and Design and enlisted in the Army Reserves, where he worked as an engineer.

Xavier had recently moved to Atlanta from Savannah, where he was attending school,
Angels of God, pray for Xavier
and planned to attend classes at the Atlanta campus. He was working at a bar in the Kirkwood area. Co-workers there describe him as friendly and always smiling.

Friends said that Xavier was striving to make something of himself. He loved life. He had great artistic ability. He always walked around with a drawing pad.

Xavier is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his mother and his girlfriend.

Pray for all who die at age 21. They barely had a chance to live.

God save us from the thieves. They are killing us, Father.

God save us from the Lost Ones who stalk the Earth stealing away life.

Pray that Xavier is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
