Victim’s sister calling for shooter’s arrest
Police are saying more about a shooting at a Taco Bell Tuesday night in which one man died.
They’re also identifying the victim as 29-year-old Daniel Adkins.
About 7:30 p.m., a 22-year-old man and his girlfriend ordered food at the Taco Bell drive-thru and were told to pull up while their order was prepared.
At the same time, Adkins stepped around a corner into the path of the vehicle and angry words were exchanged between he and the driver.
They got into an altercation and Adkins was shot once by the driver. He died at the scene.
The driver, a 22-year-old black male, called police but has not been arrested.
At first, the couple claimed that Adkins had a metal pipe that he swung at them — but it turns out he was holding a dog leash with his yellow lab on the other end.
Family members want that driver arrested, but he’s claiming self-defense.
1. Don’t believe anything about this story until you see an official report
2. This proves nothing about the Trayvon Martin case except that cops don’t always make an immediate arrest when the shooter is black.
3. Don’t expect to see Jesse and Al at the scene.
