Girlfriend of Kingston shooting victim speaks out

By  | 

SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII)- Billie Odom and Troy Mack were vacationing in Kingston for Labor Day weekend from Tecumseh, Oklahoma. They first ran into Trace Fisher at Marina del Rey and there were no signs of him acting hostile.

Later that night, they saw Fisher again, this time falling out of a golf cart, drunk.

"We were laughing and joking around with him. He comes over and talks to us again for a long time, everything was friendly," said Odom.

Odom says Fisher asked Mack to drive him back to his house, but Mack refused because he did not know Fisher. Odom believes that was the moment Fisher snapped.

"He said we were all making fun of him when he refused to drive his golf cart home. He said he was going to go get his truck and run into all of us, and then get his guns out and shoot us," said Odom.

Officials say Fisher left in a golf cart, but then returned to his truck near the bar.

"He saw him in the truck, he turned his lights on, and Troy walked over there to where the truck was parked. As soon as he walked up to the window, the dude rolled the window down and shot him in the face," said Odom.

Mack took at single shot from a .380 handgun. Mack was then taken to a local hospital before being flown to a Plano hospital.

The bullet ripped through his upper pallet and tongue leaving him with several shattered teeth. Parts of the hollow point round lodged in his neck, and doctors say it's safer to not remove those fragments because they're too close to his spinal cord.
