Atlanta man shot to death after saying he voted for Trump

Trump supporter shot and killed AtlantaIt’s clear that in the current climate, alcohol and politics don’t mix.  On Tuesday, WSB reported that 32-year-old Mitchell Mormon Jr., was shot to death outside a popular bar in Atlanta, Georgia, after saying he voted for President-elect Donald Trump and reportedly joked about someone being deported.

According to WSB:

…Shaunita Walker says her new friend and another man got into an argument, then the man pulled out a gun.

“And when I heard the first shot and it went into my arm, and I just grabbed my arm and I just began to scream,” Walker said.

Walker had no idea what seemed like a dream was about to turn into a nightmare.

“And then I heard two more shots and I saw Mitchell on the ground,” she said.

Walker says everything was a blur after that.

“And I’m just screaming, ‘Somebody please help us. Somebody please help him,'” she said.

The shooting took place around 3 a.m. Saturday outside of the Church bar on Edgewood Avenue.

Police released surveillance video of two people outside the bar.

Walker recalled how she tried to comfort Mormon after he was shot.

“I’m just telling him to breathe. It’s going to be OK. Just breathe,” she said.

Walker says the man in the white jacket in the surveillance video, who is Hispanic, tried to talk to her as she went back into the bar to retrieve her phone.

According to Walker, Mormon jokingly told the man he voted for Trump and said he would be gone next week.

As the argument continued, Walker added, the Hispanic man went around the corner, came back with a gun and opened fire, hitting both Walker and Mormom.

“Please, if anybody knows anything, please, this was so senseless. This was so horrible,” she said.

Walker is recovering from her wounds in another state, WSB said, and doesn’t think the comment about Trump played a role in the shooting.  According to Walker, the shooter was intent on causing chaos from the beginning.
