WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Charod Laws is still trying to process what happened to his friend of 20 years, Justin Wayne Bible.

"I just froze. I stayed still for about five or ten minutes, just like 'this isn't true', somebody tell me it isn't true," Laws said. "I'm waiting on a phone call, anything, to say this did not happen, but it did."

On Tuesday, Bible was shot in the head outside of a Red Lobster in Waco. He died from his injuries.

"He was a good dude," Laws said. "He stayed in his own lane, he didn't bother anybody. I've never seen him harm anybody or talk crazy to anybody. You would barely know he was in the room unless we were talking about something exciting or basketball."

Laws said he and Bible have been friends since they were kids. They also worked together at Mobb City Recordings LCC.

He said Bible was passionate about his music and helping others.

"He was down with pretty much anything going on to help the community and I feel like we lost someone very special," Laws said. "He was a good man, a good father and a good son."

Waco police are still searching for the man involved in the shooting.

Police said the suspect fled the scene in a white truck. The man got into the passenger side and another person drove the truck away from the area. 

"If anyone has any information, please come forward," Laws said. "This is a good friend of mine, he didn't deserve that. Nobody deserves that."

Laws said Bible leaves behind a wife and three children.

He added that he and Bible were planning on hosting Mobb City Recordings LCC Inaugural Hip Hop Community Softball Game on June 2. The event is still happening and will now include a balloon release to honor Bible.

The event will be at Brooklyn Park at 4:30 p.m. and 15 percent of the money raised will go to the Salvation Army.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to contact Detective Woodruff at 254-750-7614 or Waco police at 254-750-7500.
