He wasn't the only person fighting that guy. there was another guy who hit him in the head that killed that guy. Shannon just took the fall for it.

I dont like that Shannon is getting charged with it and gonna go down when he could have been out in 3 years, but they have different angles of video from the incident and they obviously reviewed it and had enough to charge him. I wish that it wouldnt have been him that did it but what can we do? I know Shannon and his family and I know this is very hard on him. Ive never known Shannon to be violent as long as I have known him and his family and I personally think that they should appeal it. The truth will come out eventually....I PRAY!!!!!

I would open my door for Shannon any time day or night. HE IS A GOOD PERSON. He made mistakes but when the whole truth comes out everyone will see. Shannon has my support and love no matter the outcome. he went to school with my kids and I watched him grow up and know many struggles he went thru that not many people know. I pray that everyone sees that Shannon is not the monster the press lets on he is.

Shannon was charged with carnal knowledge of a child? How old was the child? It didn't say statutory rape. That in itself is awful.

Why is he charged with capital murder? It took place in Duffield didn't it? More waist of tax payer money!

Shannon was my cousin and I know for a fact he didn't do the cause of what happened. Shannon is a good dude and would do anything foe anybody. The surveillance needs to be checked and watched carefully over and over.. Shannon wouldn't do anything like that and I believe it when you said he took the fall for it (gcb).. I would fight the charge all I can, but we all love you Shannon, I love you man and I pray for you everyday!! As soon as I get the chance I'ma write you.. I hope your doin okay, and god is always with you..

Shannon is a really good person. Anybody that knows him knows he is. When I heard the news it shocked me. He is only 22 years old. He had no intention killing that man. So what a fight goes wronge. Its not like he meant to kill him. I don't know the real story. But I know he wouldn't do something like that meaningfully. I pray that god gives him a second chance. Hes too young and to much of a good person to be locked in a cage for the rest of his life or the death penalty. Anybody that says any different is ignorant and does not know him personally. Put your self in his shoes. How would you feel being his age, getting into an altercation jail, then being told your either gonna be executed or locked in a cage for the rest of your life? Over an altercation! I can't engine what he is going theough. But I will be praying for him.
