SHELLMAN, GA (WALB) –A deadly fourth of July domestic dispute in Shellman. A Randolph County woman was shot and killed her boyfriend then shot himself. He survived, though and now faces murder charges.
Family members say Carolyn Johnson and her boyfriend of several years, Ricky Starling started arguing the morning of July fourth. But family members say the argument quickly escalated, and Randy Starling pulled out one of his shot guns shooting Carolyn twice, as family members including several of her grandchildren were just feet away.
Family members describe 50-year old Carolyn Johnson as a generous, well-liked woman, who had a passion for flowers. But her life was cut tragically short Sunday morning, July 4th, just one week after her 50th birthday.
Aundreka Johnson was inside the home Sunday morning, and says she watched everything unfold. "They woke up fussing she wouldn't talk to him she just kept saying leave her alone," says Johnson.
Aundreka says Johnson and her live in boyfriend of seven years, Ricky Starling, were arguing that morning an argument that GBI agents say started the night before.
"He told her to come here for her last time and she walked around the corner and said what? and that's when he shot her in the back of her leg first," said Johnson.
Officers say he used a shotgun at close range. "She begged for her life, he shot her once. She said don't shoot me again but he just went back and put the gun to her and shot her," said Johnson's niece Tammy Parker.
Then Starling turned the gun on himself firing once at his chest. "I don't have any hate in my heart for him, we just want to know why and we might not never know why," said Parker.
But Johnson was not the only victim so were all the people, who witnessed it. "There was seven kids in the house with us," said Johnson.
The case has been turned over to the GBI for further investigation.
