Connie Baggett of the Press-Register reports the shooting death of an Escambia County couple, supposedly provoked by an argument over Saturday’s Alabama/LSU clash. The last sentence of the report, predictably enough, reads, “investigators said alcohol was believed to have been a factor in the killings.”
Investigators said witnesses told them that Dennis Smith, an LSU fan, called Williams, a fan of the Crimson Tide, after the game Saturday evening and an argument ensued.
Officers said Donna Smith was a relative of Michael Williams’ girlfriend.
Soon, the Smiths arrived at Williams’ home and the men wound up in a physical altercation, officers said.
Smith retrieved a pistol from his vehicle, and threatened Williams, who armed himself with a shotgun and fired two blasts, striking and killing Dennis Smith, officers said.
Donna Smith then threatened Williams, who shot and killed the woman, they said.
Not to make light of a tragedy, but perhaps the Ford Motor Co. might reconsider placing the following advertisement right in the middle of the Press-Register’s web edition of this story :
