Wake Forest, N.C. — Search warrants released Friday reveal more details about a fatal shooting in Wake Forest.
Leslie Edward Smith, 62, and Jaquelyn Larue Gore, 48, of 3 Kelly Pine Court, were arguing outside their home Sunday afternoon, the warrants say, when Smith asked a neighbor to borrow a gun
Smith called 911 at about 2 p.m. to report that he had shot Gore. When deputies arrived, they found her dead from a gunshot wound to the chest, deputies said.
According to the warrants, they also found a handgun on the table and shell casings in the home.
Deputies charged Smith with murder. He was being held at the Wake County jail.
If I hear someone arguing the last thing I would do would be to loan one of them a weapon.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

That a man would have to borrow a gun is unbelievable.
Not unless they can prove that he knew about the intent of his neighbor.
I wonder if the neighbors will be charged with anything?
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

Bad idea to loan any gun to a neighbor.

I wont loan a gun to ANYONE!

Lending stuff out
While I would never lend out a gun under any circumstance that I can think of--well, who knows, maybe if they said they had a snake in the yard--- I have lent a large kitchen knife and lived to immediately regret it.

Sometimes good deeds can turn out bad.

Would you like to take potato chip bets that the State will charge the neighbor with involuntary manslaughter?

Answer: Likely, yes. Smith could have utilized any means to accomplish the murder, he simply chose to involve another individual to ease his own burden and now the neighbor is mentall scarred for life.

Lets forget for a moment that the gun shouldn't have been lent, and assume that the neighbor had no knowledge of the intent and that the wife was shot.
This guy must have hated his neighbor too! He got his neighbor's gun taken as evidence!
