Man shot dead outside Atlanta bar after joking about voting for Trump

A man on a first date was shot dead outside an Atlanta bar after getting into an argument with another man and making a comment about voting for Donald Trump. Mitchell Mormon Jr, 32, was gunned down outside of Church bar on Edgewood Avenue around 3am on Saturday in a double shooting, WSB-TV reported.
At the time, he was on a date with Shaunita Walker, 25, who was also shot and suffered injuries to her arm. She is now recovering out of state. Mitchell Mormon Jr, 32, (pictured left and right) was gunned down outside of Church bar on Edgewood Avenue around 3am on Saturday in a double shooting

Mormon, a father-of-three, and Walker had met a week before during an orientation for new employees. Mormon had only just accepted his new job.

Their date started out as a good evening but quickly turned deadly after Mormon got into an argument with a man who pulled a gun on him as he and Walker left the bar.

The tragic ordeal reportedly unfolded as Walker went back into the bar to get her phone when the alleged gunman, who she said is Hispanic, tried to talk to her and said something disrespectful.
