Mother of teenager fatally shot after a birthday party says she was at the scene, unaware he was dead

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The mother of a 16-year-old boy who was killed on Jacksonville’s Southside over the weekend speaks for the first time since his death.

Makye Vogel was shot dead outside an apartment complex on Old Baymeadows Road on Saturday morning.

According to police, the shooting happened after a birthday party.

News4JAX spoke to Vogel’s mother, who said he dreams of playing pro basketball but also plans to become a chiropractor as a backup plan.

“I just want him to come out of his room and twirl his hair,” Heather Moorer said, fighting back tears.

Moorer said she was on autopilot after learning of her son’s death from one of his friends.

Moorer said she went to the crime scene immediately.

“They took hours of us sitting there telling us there was a deceased teenager, after that we were literally sitting on the other side. We never knew my son was lying lifeless,” Moorer said.

Moore had the following to say to the person in charge:

“Count your days because we are coming. JSO is coming. We know a lot more than you think,” Moorer said.

At this point no arrests have been made.

If you have information about this case, call 904-630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS.

The family started a GoFundMe to help with expenses.
