Officers reportedly detained a person following the incident and questioned several more but detectives made no arrests at the time of the double homicide.

Shatswell was already behind bars when charged with the slayings after he was convicted of a possession of a firearm after felony conviction charge.

The victim’s mother, Winona Blossom, told KFOR her son, Paddyaker, was a “good boy” who loved her. “It is so hard. Because I [never] dreamed I would be burying my child."

Police have not revealed a motive for the shooting.
