The shooter, Timothy Reed, was not charged for any crime. A grand jury apparently concluded the shooting was justified self defense. Reed appears blackish in a photo that accompanied a news report.
It appears the victim was shot in the back. According to a news report, "He was laying on his back with a gunshot wound to his upper right shoulder and another on his back right side."
The report was posted in November, 2017.
The report is reminiscent of a similar shooting in 2012 in which a whitish shooter was accused of killing Trayvon Martin.
