"He screamed 'I'm hit:'" Father of 6 gunned down by woman shooting AR-15 rifle out her car window
MEMPHIS, Tennessee -- A Tennessee woman is facing murder charges after police say she fired a rifle from her car and killed a father of six.
"They say he screamed 'I'm hit,'" Yvonne McCann said.
McCann is mourning the loss of her son, 39-year-old Alvino Johnson. Police found Johnson shot to death early Saturday, September 3rd along the side of a home on Leath Street.
"He laid there over five hours," McCann said.
Within 24 hours, police arrested Jimmiko Driskell.
Police say Driskell and another woman were looking for a woman at the house when there was some sort of argument, and Driskell started shooting out of her car window with an AR-15 rifle.
Johnson was killed.
"He was my sparrow," McCann said.
McCann said it breaks her heart that no one stepped in to help. She's now consoling Johnson's six children.
"Lord it hurt me so bad to see them children," McCann said.
She said she doesn't even know where to begin when it comes to funeral expenses.
"I don't know how to do that," McCann said.
McCann said her beloved son was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Driskell has been charged with first degree murder, two counts of criminal attempted first degree murder and employing a firearm during the commission of a felony.
McCann said she'd tell Driskell this: "That I forgive her and God have mercy on her soul."
