DRAMATIC doorbell camera footage has captured the moment cries for help were heard after former NBA star Adreian Payne was shot.
Former Orlando Magic player Payne, 31, died of his injuries after being targeted in Orange County, Florida on May 9.
CCTV footage, obtained by Fox35, captured the moment an argument took place before a gunshot was heard.
Next, a woman, who claimed to be Payne’s mother, can be heard screaming for help.
She said, “Please help me. Help me. He shot my son. Help me! I don’t know the address. He shot him. He just died. Help me please.”
Payne was allegedly shot by 29-year-old Lawrence Dority.
Dority was arrested and pleaded not guilty to first degree murder with a firearm during a court appearance on Tuesday.
Court documents obtained by the Detroit Free Press revealed that Payne’s girlfriend told cops that she and the basketball player had been asked to come to Dority’s home.
The affidavit said Payne’s girlfriend had already responded as a “mediator.”
His name was redacted in the police report.
Dority told police his father dropped him off at his home in Orange County.
Payne and his girlfriend were in a vehicle that was parked on the roadway at an intersection.
Court documents allege Dority shot Payne after the NBA star got out of his car.
Dority claimed that Payne was “making moves with his belt-like right hand”.
And, he alleged that Payne “got in his face and was intimidating,” according to the affidavit.
He is accused of having fired a single shot at the basketball player.
Dority apparently believed the shooting was “justified” because he was “protecting his family”, according to court documents.
A witness told police that Payne was in no way threatening Dority.
And Orange County sheriff’s deputies said the basketball player “did not pose an immediate threat.”
Payne was unarmed and cops did not find a weapon in his car.
Payne first rose to fame at Michigan State University in his senior year, when he averaged 16.6 points and 7.3 rebounds on more than 50% shooting from the floor, according to Sports Illustrated. .
After graduating, he was drafted into the NBA in 2014 by the Atlanta Hawks.
He then worked with the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Orlando Magic.
Orlando Magic said the team was “saddened” after Payne’s death.
Payne has also had stints in Europe and most recently played for Juventus Utena in Italy from December 2021 to February 2022.
