â†µâ‡¥An Escambia County couple died Saturday after an argument over the Alabama/LSU football game ended in shotgun blasts, according to Conecuh County authorities. â†µâ‡¥â†µThere is an apt metaphor here that applies to the LSU-Bama game on the field, as well: Don’t bring a pistol to a shotgun fight. You will lose every time. Although you cannot argue with the passion of those SEC fans. They are literally willing to kill for their team.â†µ
â†µâ‡¥Investigators said witnesses told them that Dennis Smith, an LSU fan, called Williams, a fan of the Crimson Tide, after the game Saturday evening and an argument ensued. Officers said Donna Smith was a relative of Michael Williams' girlfriend. â†µâ‡¥â†µâ‡¥
â†µâ‡¥Soon, the Smiths arrived at Williams' home and the men wound up in a physical altercation, officers said. â†µâ‡¥â†µâ‡¥
â†µâ‡¥Smith retrieved a pistol from his vehicle, and threatened Williams, who armed himself with a shotgun and fired two blasts, striking and killing Dennis Smith, officers said. â†µâ‡¥â†µâ‡¥
â†µâ‡¥Donna Smith then threatened Williams, who shot and killed the woman, they said. â†µâ‡¥â†µ
