"He was telling me to hold his hand," Depp said. "He kept telling...he was saying he was fittin' to die, so I was trying to calm him down. Went to go get the police 'cause I seen they were driving by. Came back, he was gone."

Police said Bailey died after being shot once. Meanwhile, a 34-year-old woman was wounded. She suffered multiple gunshots.

The family was angry and saddened that the 18-year-old was suddenly taken away.

"He was a good kid, a very good kid," Wesley said. "He was a funny kid. Played with his sisters and brothers and do things with them and everything. He was very good. I just want whoever did that to him to come forward."
