In reality the man's life was taken by the individual who fired a gun. Bullets are inanimate objects with no will of their own and can no more take someone's life than a scalpel can perform surgery.
Arrested in the death of Mahon is Jallen Hall and Alexa Curtis.
Reports say Hall fired the gun after Curtis requested the attack. The attack was prompted by an argument between Curtis and an unnamed person who was in the house.
The accused are persons of African descent.
Mahon was shot in the head.
The crime was reported July 22, 2015 and occurred in West Columbus, Ohio.

A 61-year-old man is dead after a shooting Monday night, but his daughter says he wasn’t the intended target.
Emmala Mahon says her father Charlie Mahon was everything to her family. “He was always there for everybody; he was the glue,” she recalls.
The family says Charlie had no idea there was a man outside his home with a gun when he entered his back door on Springmont and South Highland Avenues. By the time he came to the front door, a shot was fired. Four more followed.
Mahon fell near the door. Calls to 911 followed.
Caller: My dad's been shot in the head.
Dispatcher: Who shot him? Who shot him, ma'am?
Caller: Some guy named Jallen.
The family says some kind of argument between the friend of the shooter and someone in the house sparked the gunfire.
Police say Jallen Hall fired the gun, and 21-year-old Alexa Curtis called him to carry out the attack. Both are wanted for murder. Police have not located either of them.
Emmala says her father was generous man and an innocent bystander in the shooting. “Anything you asked him for, he would do it. He would give the shirt of his back if you needed it,” she says
Meanwhile, a shattered family prays for justice.
“Turn yourself in, that's the best thing you can do. Let us have our peace. Let my dad be buried in peace. Let him have his peace,” pleaded Emmala.
The family says at the time of the shooting, there were three children inside the home—two teenagers and one toddler. No one was injured.
