GOOD: Shooting Ruled Self-Defense - Milledgeville, GA
Employee shoots man in self-defense - Campus News
A man was killed last Tuesday, Feb. 3, resulting from an altercation with his alienated wife and her male friend.
Boderick Horne, 31 of Milledgeville, was found dead with several gunshot wounds in the home of his alienated wife, Lakeisha Horne, 28, in her duplex apartment located in River's Edge Subdivision.
Officials said that Boderick Horne had forcefully entered his estranged wife's home confronting Lakeisha Horne and her male friend, Keeno Weaver, a GCSU Employee.
Authorities say that the males got into an argument taking the confrontation into the kitchen when Weaver shot Boderick Horne several times resulting in his death.
Lakeisha Horne was not present during the shooting.
Authorities said that she was outside making a phone call to get help. However, Capt. Dray Swicord of Milledgeville Police said that they responded to a call made by Weaver.
Weaver was detained by Milledgeville PD for questioning and was released Wednesday.
Authorities say they've concluded the investigation and they have turned in the case to the DA's office pending charges.
"Upon our investigation of the case, we have reason to believe that Weaver shot Horne in self-defense," Swicord said.
This is the first killing in the city Milledgeville for this year.
The neighborhood where Horne was killed is located within a couple miles of the GCSU campus. Several students live in this subdivision including those living across the street from the scene of the crime.
Alex Smith, a senior who lives across the street, said that it's such a shock to know what happened there.
"It's a pretty quiet neighborhood and it's unfortunate that happened," Smith said. "It's scary that something like that happened so close. It really makes you more aware."
No word yet on whether or when Weaver is returning to work at GCSU.
