Video captured moment Alabama hoops player Darius Miles allegedly opened fire
Watch chilling video how University of Alabama basketball player Darius Miles allegedly gunned down a 23-year-old mother of one because she had brushed him off, the victim’s devastated mom said.
“Took my baby’s life because she wouldn’t talk to him,” DeCarla Cotton said on Facebook, where she posted a photo of her late daughter and her 5-year-old son, Kaine.
Jamea Jonae Harris was killed early Sunday when Miles, 21, allegedly opened fire at a car she was riding in near “The Strip,” an area near the campus, officials said.
Police identified Miles and Michael Lynn Davis, 20, as suspects in the shooting after they reviewed surveillance footage and interviewed multiple witnesses.
They were charged with capital murder.

“She was a beautiful young woman who loved her family and most of all her 5-year-old son Kaine,’’ Cotton told AL.com. “She was just trying to enjoy her weekend with her cousin that attends the University of Alabama and her boyfriend.”
Harris’ cousin Kennedi Henderson called the slain woman “a humble soul, and she was always a happy soul.”
She said Harris “kept the cousins together and pushed us to be the best us. She was the best little cousin I can ask for, honestly.”
Henderson added: “The family and I are just in disbelief that something like this has happened to her. We just ask for prayers at this time.”
