CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — It's been almost two weeks since the death of Antony Richardson in Clarksville and still no answers. The 18-year-old was found injured on October 6, 2019.

Police say Richardson was discovered with serious injuries around 5:30 p.m. on Britton Springs Road. Richardson's mom, Raushanah Hasan Anderson, told NewsChannel 5 he was shot in the head and left to die. A passerby saw Richardson and called 9-1-1. Richardson died from his injuries.

"It's very hard to talk about," said Anderson, "I think about him every day."

There's still no information as to who Antony was with at the time and why someone would want him dead. Raushanah says she only knows bits and pieces of what happened that day.

"I feel like someone out there knows something and I just want them know they can remain anonymous and give them their information," said Anderson.

No arrests have been made in his murder and there are still no leads. Richardson's service will be held in Nashville on Saturday at Smith Brothers Funeral Directors, 706 Monroe Street. Visitations will start at 11 a.m. The family has set up a gofundme to help with expenses.

"I want the youth to know about the aftermath of pulling a trigger and how it affects family and friends," said Anderson, "Please think twice. Think about a mother."

Anyone with information can contact Detective Christy Bing 931-648-0656. ext. 5133, Tipsline 931-645-8477, or go online and submit a tip anonymously at P3tips.com/591 [p3tips.com]

"We believe he was in a car with someone and he ended up on the side of the road," said Anderson, "I feel like someone out there knows something."

There has been some good that came out of this tragedy. Richardson is an organ donor and according to his mom, a little boy in Texas received his heart.
