The parents of the Morgan State University student gunned down outside a Northeast convenience store are speaking out. 

Their son, 19-year-old Jonathan Tobash was killed when he walked into an on-going robbery Monday night.

It happened in the 3500 block of Pelham Avenue. 

"I feel rage that this happened to my child," Tobash's mother, Mary Harry, told ABC2.

This mother of three just lost her youngest child.

"I feel that this is very unfair to me and Johnny and his brothers and sisters.  We're all devastated," Harry said.

"Something needs to be done to get these people off the street and that this senseless killing doesn't happen to another mother's child," Harry continued.

His parents say Tobash, an engineering and business major,  was one of the good ones.

"I feel sorry for other children out here just like Jonathan, promising teens out here because in Baltimore City all kids aren't out here doing bad things," said Harry.

"He was a great kid he was amazing," his father, Michael Tobash said. "I take great pride in that and I'm glad he touched so many peoples' lives."

Harry is upset to think about the man Tobash was growing into.

"He's a good-hearted child with hopes and dreams, hard worker, friendly, happy," Harry said.

Those hopes and dreams dashed in an instant. His shooter is still on the loose and his mother has this message to the gunman.

"Please turn yourself in and anybody who has information please call the police and give them that information."

Tobash would've turned 20 in January.
