Muhammad Saeed, age 20

Lost to gun violence on May 10, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Saeed was killed while working as a clerk at a gas station. He moved from Pakistan five months ago. A visitor to this page told us some details about his life and family. His mother raised Muhammad and his five siblings alone in Pakistan while his father was working in the U.S. and waiting for his citizenship. It was well known in their village that the father was working abroad, so their home was a target for robbery. His mother had to sleep with a gun at her side to protect the family. Muhammad's plan was to work hard in the U.S. so that his father could return home to his family. He planned to own a gas station one day. Unfortunately, a robber ended that dream for a couple hundred dollars.
