    Officer finds son mortally wounded at fight scene

    PATERSON, New Jersey (AP) -- A police officer responding to a report of a fight found that the mortally wounded victim was his son.

    Officer Wayne Smith was working a night shift early Easter morning when he was called to the scene and pushed his way through the blood-spattered crowd. Someone yelled, "Wayne, that's your son, Dayshawn. He just got stabbed."

    "Dayshawn," he recalled saying. "It's Dad! I'm right here! Wake up! Come on! Let's do this!"

    Dayshawn Smith died at 6:30 a.m. at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center.

    From June 2007:


    Superior Court Judge Randolph Subryan sentenced 26-year-old Rashawn Capers to 40 years without parole for the murder of 20-year-old Dayshawn Smith and 12 years for the attempted murder of Smith's friend, 17-year-old Raheem Pickens. The sentences are to be served consecutively...

    Capers was convicted in February of murder, attempted murder and three weapons offenses for his role in a March 27, 2005, street fight outside a Paterson after-hours club.
