Two bullets into the wall

Alfonso Mason, 57, a former bank executive who ended up struggling to pay rent at extended-stay motel, was found guilty of murder, armed robbery, kidnapping and carjacking...

Mason, who was known to the motel staff as someone who was friendly and neat, spent a year watching TV and drinking, he told Clayton County detectives, and he fell into depression, despair and alcoholism.

At one point, Mason later said, he became so despondent he tried to shoot himself in the head. Instead, he fired two bullets into the wall and began to plan an armed robbery.
