Banks’ girlfriend said the whole thing was a misunderstanding, that her boyfriend took a Lyft home and must have gotten dropped off in front of the wrong breezeway and knocked on the wrong door.
“He called me and he said open the door because he was getting a Lyft home, but when I opened the door I didn’t see him,” she said. “Then I hear one gunshot, and after that, I hear him yell, ‘I’m sorry, bro. I’m at the wrong house.’”
She said she then heard her neighbor tell her boyfriend, “Nah, (expletive), you’re not at the wrong house,” before firing two more times.
She ran downstairs to her boyfriend, who she said was lying in the grass.
“I turned him over and that’s when I seen the gunshot wound to his neck and blood all over him,” she said. “He came to the wrong door ... It wasn’t self-defense.”
An APD detective testified that police never found a gun on Banks, but the one Bynes used was stolen, Channel 2 Action News reported.
Bynes remains held without bond at the Fulton County jail, records show.
