COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -“That was my cousin. I was crying for him.”

Perry Harmon says he and his 19-year-old cousin Tony Allen were very close and they hung out often.

“He loved listening to music. We would always listen to music inside the house," says Harmon.

But Allen was shot dead just before 10 a.m. Wednesday in his front yard on Swann Street in Columbus. Harmon shared photos of Allen. . He says it’s going to be a lot different without Allen around.

“He used to be with me everyday. We hung everyday.”

Allen went to school right around the corner from where the shooting happened. The Muscogee County School District confirmed Allen attended Spencer High School. Harmon says Allen’s passing has hit the family hard.

“They don’t really know what’s going on though now."
