VIDEO: Susan Louise Lorincz in handcuffs at the Marion County (FL) Sheriff’s Office after she was arrested on charges of manslaughter fatally shooting Ajike Owens through a closed door

Susan Lorincz in handcuffs at the Marion County (FL) Sheriff’s Office after the 58-yo was arrested on charges of manslaughter and other offenses for allegedly fatally shooting #AJOwens — through a closed door.

The community was starting to mount significant pressure on the authorities in the form of protests calling for Lorincz’s arrest. Initially, Sheriff Billy Woods tried to quell the outrage by stating that he had to be sure that the controversial “stand your ground” protection law did not apply to this case. We’re not sure what got him across the finish line but based on the Facebook video he posted last night, he is here now.

Ubiquitous civil rights attorney Ben Crump and family attorney Anthony D. Thompson released the following joint statement in light of the much-delayed arrest…

“While we are relieved that the woman apparently responsible for the tragic killing of Ajike “AJ” Owens has been arrested, we are no less concerned that accountability has taken this long because archaic laws like Stand Your Ground exist. What does it say when a person can shoot and kill an unarmed mother in the presence of her young children, and not be immediately taken into custody, questioned, and charged? We will remain vigilant in seeking justice for AJ and other people of color, like Ralph Yarl, who simply knocked on a door and was met with the barrel of a gun. We must eradicate laws like Stand Your Ground that only contribute to the lawlessness of our country and the disproportionate maiming and killing of people of color. This is an important step in a necessary journey to justice for AJ.”

Yesterday, BOSSIP reported on the shooting death of 35-year-old Ajike “AJ” Owens at the hands of her white, blood-thirsty, Florida neighbor who at the time was unidentified. Today, according to CBS News, not only has the woman been named publicly, but she has also been arrested! 58-year-old Susan Lorincz was put in handcuffs and taken to jail on charges of manslaughter, culpable negligence, battery, and two counts of assault. Owens’ 10-year-old son was standing right next to her when she was gunned down.

A White woman who fired through her front and killed a Black neighbor was arrested Tuesday, authorities said, in a case that's put Florida's divisive "stand your ground law" back in the spotlight. The shooting sparked widespread anger and protests.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office said Susan Lorincz, 58, was charged with manslaughter with a firearm and other offenses.

Ajike Owens, a 35-year-old mother of four, was killed Friday night in a shooting Sheriff Billy Woods said was the culmination of a 2-and-a-half-year feud between the neighbors. They lived in the rolling hills south of Ocala, a north Florida city that's the heart of the state's horse country.
