HICKORY, N.C. - A man accused of shooting and killing a father of six in Hickory turned himself into police on Monday.
Bradley Dwayne Davis, 41, is charged with murder in Shamar Rashad Wilson's shooting death on Saturday morning.
The shooting occurred just after 2 a.m. outside Alessio's Lounge and Grille. When officers arrived, they found Wilson injured from gunshot wounds. He was transported to Frye Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
"It was a senseless thing," Wilson’s aunt, Damion Nicholson said.
Wilson’s friend, Rodrika Surratt, talked to Wilson hours before his death and is hoping for answers in the case.
"I was shocked, hurt,” Surratt said. “Still unbelievable to me. Can't believe it."
Channel 9 learned that Davis was convicted of second-degree murder in 1997 in Catawba County. He was in prison until 2011 after receiving a sentenced of 16 years.
Investigators said that this was not a random crime, but they have not released the motive in the case.
