INSANE: Man Gunned Down Outside Bar After He Joked About Voting for Trump
By Joshua Rhett Miller, The New York Post
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.
