Suspect’s Family Speaks Out After Deadly Halloween Party

Posted: Updated:

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn.-As the community continues to mourn the loss of two men shot and killed at a Halloween Party, the family of their accused killer has spoken out.

In the early morning hours of October 27, 21-year-old Jason Lee Rose and 20-year old Jecarvin Brown were shot and killed at a Halloween party at a rented cabin off High Point Road near the Cumberland River.

On Wednesday, the family of teen accused of being responsible spoke out against the accusations. The family of Shakar Drones said he is not a cold-blooded killer, just a troubled teen who lost his way.

Investigators said during an argument with Jecarvin Brown, Drones fired shots. He shot and killed Brown and then shot Jason Rose who had come to Brown's aid. Drones, 18, was charged with two counts of criminal homicide and booked into the Montgomery County Jail on a $2 million bond.

Drones' grandmother said she was deeply sorry for the loss the victims' families have endured, and she doesn't condone the alleged actions of her grandson.

"Our heart bleeds for that family and those families because those are their children, just like Shakar is a part of our family," said Carolyn Drones Cooper. "Shakar is still alive. I can't imagine what it's like not to have your child there."

The Rose family has said the violence has continued and is now directed at their family prompting them to get security for the funeral services which are set for Thursday.
