Shooter was provoked in deadly Walmart parking lot argument, police say

An argument in the parking lot of a crowded metro Atlanta Walmart got physical before it turned deadly, according to police.

Snellville police and Gwinnett County’s district attorney have released new details in the Sunday night shooting that killed Fadil Delkic, 49, of Lawrenceville. Troy Hunte, 27, of Grayson, faces a charge of voluntary manslaughter in connection with his death. Authorities also explained the rationale behind the current charges against Hunte, who had a brief, first-appearance court hearing Tuesday afternoon.

He is being held in the Gwinnett County jail without bond.

Witnesses at the Walmart on Scenic Highway in Snellville said it appeared the men were arguing over a parking space when a shot rang out just before 6 p.m. Sunday. Police later said Hunte’s fiancee, who has not been identified, began arguing with Delkic over how close his car came to her as she walked through the parking lot.

Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter said the same thing during a Tuesday morning interview.

“It appears from the review of the evidence and the statements of the witnesses that the defendant and his girlfriend were coming out of the Walmart store and crossing in the crosswalk, where the victim slightly pulled into the white striped lines,” Porter said. “... And that’s what initiated everything.”

“I believe that the defendant and his girlfriend crossed out of the crosswalk and turned back, and at that point the victim got out of the car,” Porter added.

Snellville police Lt. J. McKinney said in a statement that the argument between Hunte, Hunte’s fiancee and Delkic turned physical “when Mr. Hunte’s fiancee struck Mr. Delkic in the face.”

Soon after, Hunte pulled a handgun from his pocket, McKinney said. Delkic was shot once in the chest.

The gunfire sent people running for cover inside and outside the store.

Delkic was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. Family members told Channel 2 that Delkic was a Bosnian refugee who survived prison during the Bosnian War in the 1990s.

Investigators worked with the Gwinnett County District Attorney’s office to decide on the voluntary manslaughter charge. According to an arrest warrant obtained by WSB-TV, Hunte was provoked.

“Hunte killed Delkic under circumstances that would otherwise be murder, but accused acted solely as a result of a sudden, violent, and irresistible passion resulting from serious provocation,” police said in the warrant.

Delkic’s family, meanwhile, has insisted he did nothing to provoke the shooting — and Porter described the charges against Hunte as “fluid.”

“Now as we review the case and as we get all the evidence, and particularly since it appears that this entire incident was on videotape, we may change the charges,” Porter said. 

The incident was caught on Walmart surveillance cameras, he said. At this point, any change in charges would likely come in the form of an indictment sought by Porter’s office.

The incident is still under investigation, McKinney said. Anyone who witnessed the shooting is asked to contact the Snellville Police Department at 770-985-3555 to provide a statement.

Boy tied up at night to prevent him from eating, law enforcement officials say

The Sheriff’s Office in Baker County, Florida, said an observant teacher raised the alarm, leading to the arrest of two people in a case of child abuse.

Deputies said a father is accused of tying a boy up at night to keep him from eating. They say his mother knew about it and didn’t intervene.

According to the arrest report, the boy goes to Westside Elementary School in Glenn St. Mary.

Thursday, the BCSO said his teacher noticed he had a cut and bruises on the left side of his face and immediately reported it to the school resource deputy.

“It is inhumane to me,” Sheriff Scotty Rhoden said of the case. “That’s just terrible, [the] things that they were doing to him.”

Rhoden said the boy had several injuries, some of them serious and requiring medical attention. He said the boy would be tied up at night in order to prevent him from eating.

Parents of the boy’s peers at Westside Elementary are horrified.

“I was in disbelief, for sure, because I know for me with my child I’m very protective over him, so I don’t know what goes through people’s minds,” said parent Rebecca Rhynehardt.

Deputies said the father, 39-year-old Kenneth Haley, would tie the boy up. The Sheriff’s Office said he’s facing child abuse charges, and that he was already on probation for a child neglect charge out of Jackson County.

They said the grandmother, 59-year-old Carmen Yeomans, knew and did nothing, so she’s charged with child neglect.

“It’s horrifying to think that any child would be treated that way,” said Baker County Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson. “It's just unimaginable for us.”

Baker County deputies and workers with the Florida Department of Children and Families descended on the home in Sanderson, Florida, removing the victim and three other children.

Their ages range from 3 to 7 years old. The BCSO said they’re safe in the care of DCF.

Haley is being held without bond, while Yeoman’s bond is $50,000.

School superintendent recorded in racist rant, lawsuit says

The superintendent of the city of Buford’s school district in metro Atlanta used racist language and spoke of wanting to kill black construction workers who had angered him, according to accusations in a race-discrimination lawsuit.

>> Read more trending news 

The complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in Atlanta, includes audio recordings to buttress its claims.

Superintendent Geye Hamby, in two recorded conversations, allegedly used racial epithets repeatedly when referring to African-American workers at a construction site, according to the recordings attached to the lawsuit.

“(Expletive) that (n-word). I’ll kill these (expletive) – shoot that (expletive) if they let me,” the person identified as Hamby can be heard saying. The person speaking repeatedly refers to blacks as “deadbeat (n-word).”

Hamby declined to address the allegations. 

“This is a personnel and legal matter pertaining to a disgruntled employee,” he said in a statement emailed to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “District council has advised not to comment.”

Lawyers representing Hamby and the school district, in a response to the lawsuit filed Aug. 1, denied allegations that Hamby openly uses racist language when referring to black people.

Walt Britt, a Buford attorney representing the five-member school board, said the board is aware of the “purported audio recording of Geye Hamby.”

Britt added, “(W)e have been unable to determine its veracity and authenticity and whether the recording was altered and was at the consent of at least one party or the product of illegal surveillance. Our investigation continues into this matter, but we are hamstrung in that the plaintiff has failed or refused to produce the original recording for testing or provide any information concerning the background or foundation of the recording.”

Hamby (whose first name is pronounced GUY) has led the Buford schools since 2006. The four-school district has only about 4,800 students, but Hamby’s 2017 base salary was $308,000, among the highest among superintendents in the state, records show.

The lawsuit does not say when Hamby allegedly made these remarks or with whom he was speaking. It also does not specify where the recordings came from. It’s possible the person making the racist comments did not know he was being recorded at the time.

Atlanta lawyer Ed Buckley, who represents the plaintiff in the lawsuit, declined to disclose where he obtained the recordings or say when the conversations occurred. But Buckley, who hired an expert to examine and analyze the audio, said he is certain it’s Hamby making the racist comments in the recordings. He also denied the district’s claim that they have “failed or refused” to produce the audio.

“It is embedded in the complaint. They have it,” he said.

Buckley’s client, Mary Ingram, 66, filed suit against Hamby and Buford’s school district in late June. A Buford native, she worked for the city school system for more than 18 years, mostly as a paraprofessional.

Swanson, Gausman carry Braves over Pirates 6-1

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Kevin Gausman has enjoyed transitioning to his new team. Dansby Swanson helped make it all the more pleasant Tuesday night.

Gausman breezed through eight innings, Swanson had two homers and four RBIs and the Atlanta Braves beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-1.

In his fourth start for Atlanta, Gausman (8-9) gave up four hits with five strikeouts and two walks, helping the NL East-leading Braves take the first two legs of the three-game series. He has allowed six runs in 27 innings since being acquired from the Baltimore Orioles on July 31.

"This is a fun team to play for, especially right now," Gausman said. "We're playing well and it's a fun place to come to work every day. A little different than where I've been this season. It was frustrating being over there, being a part of the season (the Orioles are) having over there was tough."

Swanson's first homer gave the Braves a 2-0 lead in the fifth before he sent another two-run shot into nearly the same spot in the left field bleachers, extending the lead to 5-0 in the seventh. Kurt Suzuki doubled down the left-field line, scoring Ozzie Albies from first for the third run. Tyler Flowers scored on a wild pitch in the ninth to make it 6-0.

"You're not really looking at the results," Swanson said. "You're really looking at the progress and the process. ... It's definitely a good thing moving forward, but tomorrow's a new day."

Ivan Nova (7-8) allowed Swanson's first home run after retiring his initial 10 batters, including the first nine on 29 pitches. Ender Inciarte singled to center for Atlanta's first hit with one out in the fourth.

Nova got through six innings on 78 pitches (51 strikes), but was removed when Josh Harrison pinch-hit with one out and the Pirates trailing 2-0 in the sixth. He allowed two runs and four hits with four strikeouts.

The Pirates had allowed one run in each of their previous five games, but were 2-3 during that stretch.

"I knew (getting pulled) was going to happen," Nova said. "We need to score. It's been tough the last week. A lot of good pitching."

Harrison singled and the Pirates eventually loaded the bases with two outs, but Gausman got out of the jam when Josh Bell grounded out to short.

"(Gausman) is pitching exactly how we had hoped when we got him," Braves manager Brian Snitker said. "He was really, really good tonight. That was huge."

Gregory Polanco led off the ninth with a home run off Chad Sobotka for Pittsburgh's lone run.

"Can we adjust the lineup, look at some different things? We've talked about it," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "It's been hard. These guys are battling. Guys are doing some different things to try to change up some things. ... We're not getting the results we want."

ROSTER MOVES

Braves: OF Michael Reed was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett. RHP Bryse Wilson was optioned to Gwinnett following his major league debut Monday.

Pirates: RHP Clay Holmes was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis. OF Jordan Luplow was optioned to Indianapolis.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Braves: Suzuki was pulled after being hit by a pitch in the ninth inning. Flowers ran for Suzuki shortly after he made his way to first base. Snitker did not provide an update following the game.

Pirates: OF Starling Marte did not start after visiting a doctor for undisclosed reasons earlier Tuesday. He entered the game as a defensive replacement in center field for the eighth inning. Marte was benched Monday, but pinch hit in the ninth inning after Hurdle deemed he lacked effort while running the bases in a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday.

UP NEXT

Braves: RHP Julio Teheran (8-7, 4.24) would like to build off his past two starts when he takes the mound for the series finale against the Pirates on Wednesday. After failing to go at least six innings in three starts from July 24-Aug. 5, he has gone a combined 13 in his last two starts while allowing three runs and five hits.

Pirates: RHP Trevor Williams (10-9, 3.53) will aim to keep his hot stretch going when he faces the Braves on Wednesday. He has allowed two runs or fewer in each of his past six starts and hasn't surrendered a run in four of those starts, dating to July 11.
