YVETTE SMITH: DEAD AFTER CALLING COPS FOR HELP





"On Feb. 16, [2014] deputies were called to a home on Zimmerman Avenue just after midnight for reports of two men fighting over a weapon. Witnesses who were inside the house at the time said the woman called 911 and told the dispatcher the fight was over money, not a gun.


When Officer Daniel Willis arrived at the home, Smith was standing near the front doorway of the home. According to authorities, Willis issued verbal commands for Smith to come out of the home but when she stepped out he fired his weapon and shot her twice."
