In the seconds leading up to his death, Prentis filmed himself talking about his desire to move from Charlotte to Atlanta, when suddenly a figure in a blue jacket approaches.

Prentis appears agitated by the sight of his gun, and says ‘You on Live’ repeatedly in a calm voice, before the shots ring out in quick succession.

Police confirmed after that Prentis had been killed, with the killer remaining on the run and nearby Wingate University locked down in the wake of the slaying.
