Nash spoke about the attack in a recent interview with the Times. He said that Don and DeCarlos Smith are the brothers of a member of the City Council.
About two or three minutes later, Mr. Hall, Ms. Farley, Ms. Smith, came back with DeCarlo Smith and Don Smith who are brothers to Rosieanna Smith-Lee [a Gould City Council member]. They jumped out of their car street gang-style. The assault took place after that. One gentlemen tried to stop Mr. Smith because he saw the gun in his hand. I didn’t see the gun. When I saw it, I really didn’t know whether to run or stay there because I felt as though my life was in danger at that particular time. Any time someone has a gun and they’re coming at you angry, you’re life is in danger.
His brother punched me on my left side. Then Don Smith got up on me and that’s when I received the hit with the weapon, with the gun.
