Jacquell Smith was allegedly shot twice in the head by Raekwon Pauldo in in Dublin, Georgia, on Oct. 29.
The two young men were reportedly arguing about Biblical forgiveness.
Dublin police Chief TIm Chatman told WMAZ:
Apparently two friends got into an argument. These are friends. They’ve been knowing each other for a long time. They were arguing over stuff that didn’t make any sense. As a result of that argument, one of the gentlemen just shot him – shot him in the head twice.
… at one point in time, they were arguing over the Bible, about forgiveness, and then that turned to something else.
He was a college student trying to get an education. He was in a house. They all knew one another. In fact, there were some parents there, and it went from 0 to 100 in a matter of seconds over nothing.
You have a young man who’s trying to get a college education, lost his life by the hands of a friend and it doesn’t make sense, these senseless acts of violence we’re seeing all over our country that we’re killing one another like flies.
Smith’s grandmother, Jickie Rozier, claimed to see a bizarre vision of her slain grandson: “A spirit came to me and said, ‘Grandma, I’m alright.’ I said, ‘OK, I can sleep a little better now.'”
