A woman, awakened by the sound of someone removing the screen from her bedroom window, got out of her bed at 1 a.m. Friday, walked to her son’s room and quietly woke him.
“She said, ‘Snigg get up,’” the son said in an interview later Friday morning.
A man was trying to enter the apartment, but the son nicknamed “Snigg” took two shots and the perp turned and took off.
Javorous Darnell Tims, 20, ran about 80 feet from the window, fell to the sidewalk and died of a single gunshot wound, police said Friday.
The first shot apparently hit the wall.
The intruder apparently had lived nearby previously.
Tina Clarke, [apartment maintenance man] Dustin’s wife, holding a baby outside the office laundry, said it is kind of scary having a shooting at 1 a.m., but she said they’d moved from a nearby apartment where crime was worse.
This was “a shooting at 1 a.m.”? Um, wasn’t it a “home invasion at 1 a.m.”? That’s scary.
