COVINGTON, Ga. — Family and friends are mourning the loss of a man authorities say was intentionally run over and killed by a driver who is still on the run.

Police say 20-year-old Kevin Marshall, who family said had special needs, was rammed with a pickup truck by Joshua Anderson after an argument Thursday night - July 4 - in Covington.

Marshall's mother spoke at the vigil Sunday night, who couldn't fathom how this could happen.

"I am so angry that my son was knocked from that fence to right here," she said, gesturing to where she stood.

"He knocked his breath away," she added.
