A man was shot and killed outside a popular Atlanta bar after he got into an argument with a Latino man, jokingly telling him he would be deported by President-Elect Donald Trump.
Mitchell Mormon Jr., 32, was on a date with Shaunita Walker and as the two were leaving the bar, she told WSBTV she realized she had left her phone inside. When Walker went back into the bar to retrieve it, she said a man tried to talk to her and said something disrespectful to her.
“And Mitchell was like, ‘What did he say to you?’” Walker told WSBTV.
That is when Mormon and the Hispanic man started arguing back and forth, with Mormon jokingly telling the man he would be deported under Trump eventually.
Walker said the Hispanic man then went around the corner, grabbed a gun and came back and shot Mormon and Walker.
Walker said she tried to console Mormon, who eventually died on the scene.
“I’m just telling him to breathe,” Walker said. “It’s going to be okay. Just breathe.”
“Please, if anybody knows anything, please, this was so senseless. This was so horrible,” Walker told WSBTV.
Walker said the Hispanic man had been trying to cause a scene from the very beginning when he tried to talk to her. The woman is now recovering from her gunshot wound.
