A Cobb County man is accused of killing a man during a meeting to buy prescription drugs, according to Smyrna police.

Kristion Taylor White, 21, drove to the Wyndcliff Apartments on Cobb Parkway around 5:30 p.m. Thursday after arranging to buy pain medication, his arrest warrant states.

During the transaction, White is accused of firing three shots, killing Anthony Aguilar of Roswell, according to police. Aguilar had instructed White to get inside his car and began driving through the parking lot, despite White saying he wanted to get out, the arrest warrant states.

Aguilar was found dead inside a Nissan Versa, Sgt. Louis Defense with Smyrna police said.

After the shooting, White returned to his home and gave his gun to his roommate, the arrest warrant states.

“Said accused then stated that he charged his phone at the residence and then called 911 to speak to a police officer about the shooting,” White’s warrant states.

Smyrna officers located the gun at White’s home. After being interviewed by officers, White was charged with murder and drug possession, Defense said.

White was booked into the Cobb jail, where he was being held without bond Friday, records showed.
