"Shot my brother dead in the head. I saw everything," said Roshone Simon, 26, Mack's brother. He said he witnessed the shooting, and police aren't being told the truth. Roshone said his brother was never at the club that night, and it was his cousin, Cedric Young, who was asked to leave Reggie's.Damn. Isn't that the idea? Strange how Reggie James shot the only returning man who had a gun in his pocket. Mr. James must have gotten all telepathic to know where the concealed gun was.
"They told me to get out, and don't come back to the club," Young told NewsChannel 15. Cedric says he did return to the club, with Roshone and Mack. He said Mack did have a gun in his pocket, but never drew it. "He ain't never got the chance to do nothing with it," Cedric Young said.
If you get thrown out of a juke joint, don't come back with a gun and a couple of friends.
In March of 1997, Timmonsville police charged Reggie James with one count of murder. A jury acquitted him of that charge a year later. The results of the present police investigation will be submitted to the solicitor, who will then decide if charges will be filed.
