GREENSBORO, N.C. — It took more than a year for evidence to be collected and analyzed in the 2014 shooting of Kenon Alrease Wall. Police now say his death is no longer considered a homicide.

Wall, 29, is accused of firing a shotgun in the parking lot of the Magic Gentleman’s Club at 2216 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive at about 4 a.m. on Oct. 11, 2014.

“In a tirade, he pulled out the gun and pointed it at a group,” said Police Capt. Mike Richey.

Wall’s death is now classified as a defensive shooting.

Several people felt threatened by Wall’s actions and at least two groups of people fired at Wall, killing him, Richey said.
