Albany Resident Monie Jones Dies in a Shooting Incident
The family of Antwawn Shackleford is grieving his loss after he was shot and killed over the weekend.
The New Albany man died Saturday night after a shooting outside the Dosker Manor apartments.
“He was not a bad guy, he was not a bad guy at all,” said Tiana White, Shackleford’s step-sister.
She said he loved water, fishing, and was good with his hands.
He was ‘oh I know how to fix that’, he knew how to fix anything,” she said.
A suspect in the shooting hasn’t been named, but is in custody. Shackleford, 39, leaves behind a wife and five children.
White said Shackleford was working at Dosker Manor as security and his life was taken away too soon.
“He didn’t deserve to die over a petty argument or whatever it was,” she said.
Cousin Artisha Jones said a security guard told her the shooting happened after a dispute over a kayak, left in the hallway by an elevator.
The guard told Jones that anything left by the elevator is usually up for grabs at Dosker Manor, so Shackleford took it.
“And then he tried to go talk to the guy, him and the guy got into it so he was just like forget it he wasn’t going to you know okay I’m not going to give it back so it was still in there,” Jones recounted.
