When WHITES get together, they give out goodie bags... When BLACKS get together they bring out BODY BAGS! Proven fact!
A 19-year-old woman who was one of two North Carolina university students shot and killed early Sunday during a party was remembered by her family as a hardworking sophomore who was “smart and energetic.’’
Alisia Dieudonne, 19, of Homewood, and Ahmad Campbell, 21, of Kittrell, N.C. died early Sunday morning after a man opened fire from outside an off-campus Greensboro home where a party had been going on.
“I just want whoever is responsible to be brought to justice and punished to the fullest extent of the law,” said Dieudonne’s stepfather, James Hill III. “She was no troublemaker; she was just a regular college kid. This could have happened anywhere . . . but the reality is this shouldn’t have happened to anyone.”
Police said there was no evidence the two were part of a fight that broke out Sunday morning and said they appeared to be innocent bystanders.
Dieudonne graduated from Homewood-Flossmoor High School in 2015 and moved to Greensboro to study computer science at North Carolina A&T State University. She was an accomplished and intelligent student who hoped to one day establish a career in technology, Hill said.
“She was smart and energetic. She liked being a college student — she was a sophomore and even went to summer school to earn more credits,” he said. “It was very important to her. She was a hard worker; she cared a lot about how she did. She put forth a valiant effort . . . like I said, she wanted to be successful.”
Hill said Dieudonne was the youngest of five siblings and traveled to Homewood as often as she could to visit family.
“She was popular, smart and all she wanted to do was make good on her education and be like her siblings,” he said. “She was the last one to go to college. She wanted to finish school and do well like everyone else.”
Officers responded about 2:10 a.m. Sunday to a reported disturbance at an off-campus Greensboro home. Greensboro police Cpl. M.D. Matthews told the News & Record of Greensboro that police located Dieudonne and Campbell shot inside the residence.
Greensboro police Capt. Nathaniel Davis said witnesses have cooperated with police who have yet to determine a suspect, the weapon used or the number of guests at the party.
“This incident is extremely disturbing. Violence on or near our campus is unacceptable,” said university Chancellor Harold L. Martin in an emailed statement. “The safety of our students, faculty and staff is a priority.”
Martin said Dieudonne and Campbell “were actively involved in campus life and vitally important members of the Aggie family,” according to the statement.
The student who held the party, 20-year-old Nicholas Jeffers, says he told everyone to leave when a fight broke out. Another fight started outside, and he heard three shots fired, he said.
"I'm stunned because it didn't have to go this far," Jeffers said.
Jeffers, who was friends with the two students who died, said neither knew about the first fight until he told them moments before someone fired the shots that killed both of them.
"This is a really sad day," Davis said. "We're just hoping people will come forward with information."
Jeffers said he invited a small group of friends over to his apartment after leaving a party across town. As the night went on "hundreds of people" showed up, and he said he later learned someone posted that he was having a party on social media.
“We are devastated,’’ said school spokeswoman Joy Cook in an emailed statement.
