CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Police have released the heartbreaking 911 call a Charlotte teenager made after authorities said he shot and killed his friend.
"I just, I just shot my friend," Jermarion Worthy can be heard telling the dispatcher. "Somebody just shot through the house."
"Is anyone injured?" the dispatcher asked.
"He's shot in the head. Someone shot through the house," Worthy replies.
Police said Worthy shot his friend Jamie Bright Sunday inside Bright's home on Clanton Road.
Family members said Bright, 18, was a football player for Harding University High School.
He was also a member of the Y-Achiever and Level Up program at the Stratford Richardson YMCA.
"Jamie was a great young man,” Executive Director Victor Nicholson said. “Very respectful young man. Full of energy. Laughing and joking."
Investigators have not released a motive but said Worthy, 17, stayed on the scene after the shooting and was arrested.
Investigators have not said much about what led up to the shooting but confirmed the two teenagers knew each other. Bright’s sisters said they were close friends.
Friends and family attended a visitation Friday for Bright at Boston's Mortuary on Statesville Road.
Bright’s sister wore a shirt Friday with his picture on it. She and other family members are trying to forgive Worthy for what happened.
"I definitely can forgive him because my family is all about forgiving," Bright’s sister, Mardesha Bright, said.
His funeral is set for 11 a.m. Saturday at the Park Church on Beatties Ford Road.
