Man Shot & Killed Outside of an Atlanta Bar While on a Date After He Joked About Voting for Donald Trump
SENSELESS MURDER IN ATLANTA, GA …
32 year old Mitchell Mormon Jr. was shot and killed outside of an Atlanta bar after getting into an argument. According to accounts, Shaunita Walker, who was on a date with Mormon, was walking back into the bar to retrieve her phone when a Hispanic man tried to talk to her and said something disrespectful. Mormon then confronted the man, which led to an argument between the three individuals. Walker said Mormon joked during the exchange that he had voted for Trump and would be gone next week. The Hispanic man pulled out a gun and shot Mitchell Mormon Jr. dead.
A first date went terribly wrong when a man was gunned down outside a bar after he jokingly said he voted for President-elect Donald Trump.
Shaunita Walker told WSB-TV that she and Mitchell Mormon Jr. were outside Church Bar on Edgewood Avenue in Atlanta at about 3 a.m. Saturday when her new date got into an argument with another man who pulled a gun.
Walker, 25, said the alleged shooter uttered something disrespectful to her as she went back into the bar, angering Mormon, 32, who confronted the man and began arguing with him. Walker said Mormon jokingly told the man he voted for Trump.
The argument continued and the alleged shooter — identified by Walker as a Hispanic man wearing a white coat — went around a corner, came back with a gun and opened fire.
Police said officers responded to 466 Edgewood Ave. and found both Walker and Mormon shot. Both were taken to Grady Hospital, where Mormon later died. Walker, who was shot in the arm, is recovering out of state, WSB-TV reports.
Investigators released surveillance video depicting several people outside the bar,
including two people they hope to identify in connection with the shooting: a man in
a white jacket who appears to be Hispanic and a white male in a hooded sweatshirt carrying a backpack.
Police are also asking the public for any video of the incident that may have been captured by patrons.
