A Georgia man was found guilty Thursday of killing a man who was mourning the death of his grandma, all because the victim had accidentally bumped into him at a bar.
Torry Bowman (shown above), 33, killed Alec Price, 25, in October 2017 after the bar bump, according to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office. Price and his big brother, Britian Price, were having a drink inside a bar named Mother while mourning the death of their grandmother, who had died just that day.
Alec accidentally bumped into Bowman. Bowman’s friend Terrell Goodman began to argue with the grieving brothers over the bump. Although Bowman and Goodman left the bar for a bit, they came back and the argument escalated.
“A security officer employed by the bar noticed when Goodman returned he was carrying a gun in his pocket,” the attorney’s office stated. “The security officer then escorted Bowman and Goodman from the bar.”
But, instead of leaving, Bowman and his friend waited for the Price brothers to come out of the bar.
“When the Price brothers finally exited the establishment Bowman fired four shots with a 9mm handgun at the two men,” the attorney’s office said. “Three of the shots struck Alec Price. One of the shots traveled through his heart killing him at the scene.”
Bowman and Goodman then fled the area. Police stopped Bowman for running a red light after the shooting and both were arrested on unrelated warrants. They were linked to the murder four days after it occured because Goodman bragged about it to a fellow inmate while held in jail.
Bowman has been convicted of murder, felony murder, and numerous other charges and has been sentenced to life in jail for the shooting. Goodman will face a trial for Price’s murder at a later date.
