    Warrants outline fatal shooting in Wake Forest

    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.

    That a man would have to borrow a gun is unbelievable.

    I wonder if the neighbors will be charged with anything?
    Not unless they can prove that he knew about the intent of his neighbor.
    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.

    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.

    A neighbor lady came to the door asking to borrow a knife. I put that in the same category as a neighborly request for sugar.

    Later, I found out about lots of trouble next door that I didn't know existed, about mental health issues, and so on.

    Sometimes good deeds can turn out bad.

    The road to h is paved with good intentions.

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

    The question that will be tough to beat: Would the murder have taken place had the neighbor not provided Smith with the means?
    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!
