auborn football player ki*ledAUBURN — As friends and family gathered at the Opelika home of Mario and Arlicia Mitchell, a father was struggling for answers as to why he won’t see his son alive again.

Jakell Mitchell, a freshman member of Auburn’s football team, was shot and ki*led at a party at an apartment complex near the Auburn University campus early Sunday morning.

“That’s not a place I wouldn’t have told him that he could go,” Mario Mitchell said. “He goes to school there. I mean (a party?) That’s the college life. The guys there weren’t in college.

“There’s nothing I would’ve told him to do different. What I told him to do was not hang out (in Opelika); he was at Auburn. I told him to stay out of Opelika. So he was doing exactly what I told him to do.”

Mitchell, 18, was gunned down after what police believe was a “verbal altercation,” which escalated into tragedy at the same apartment complex where two former Auburn football players lost their lives in a June 2012 shooting.

Auburn Police responded to a call of shots fired at the at approximately 12:25 a.m. Sunday at the Tiger Lodge at Auburn apartment complex on West Longleaf Drive.
