Two men were killed Wednesday in a shooting at Mobile Terrace Mobile Home Park.

The Bowling Green Police Department was called at 2:46 p.m. to Lot 56 of the mobile home park at 3509 Nashville Road regarding shots fired.

A male victim was found dead on the road outside Lot 56 with a gunshot wound in the head, according to BGPD spokesman Officer Ronnie Ward.

City police later identified him as Latravion D. Briggs, 20, of Bowling Green.

At the scene, Briggs’ aunt Okemia Williams of Franklin said he enjoyed traveling and was “big on family,” especially his two siblings, his parents and his late grandmother.

Williams said she had spoken with Briggs earlier that day at a wake and given him a hug. “He was a well-rounded young man, he didn’t promote violence, he didn’t bother nobody,” Williams said.

The other victim was identified as Mark A. Dice Jr., 24, of Bowling Green.

Dice was taken to The Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the chest and was pronounced dead at the hospital, the BGPD said.

Several BGPD officers and crime scene processors were on hand as relatives of the victims gathered at the neighborhood over the course of the afternoon.

“Detectives are trying to talk to all the people here and nearby to see what we can learn from this and crime scene processors are also collecting all the evidence,” Ward said. “Once that’s done, hopefully we can get to work on identifying a suspect.”

Warren County Commonwealth’s Attorney Chris Cohron arrived at one point to offer assistance.

Police had been advised initially about a vehicle that had left the scene, but learned later that the vehicle was not connected with the shooting, Ward said.

How sad! Where is BLM???? Considering the statistics would suggest there is a good chance the shooter is a young, black, male you probably won't hear a thing from BLM. If the shooter is white, it's game on!


Still nothing from BLM. How about Howard Bailey since he is the authority on how white people need to change? Any suggestions Howard?
