    Guy with .357 assists responding officer

    3 dead in Brown County RV park shooting after dispute over dogs
    STEVE NASH, Brownwood Bulletin via The Associated Press

    ~ Summarized by me~

    A couple in their 50s from out of state had 2 dogs that evidently were wandering to a neighboring space in a trailer park, and relieving themselves. The man staying in that space warned the couple about their dogs wandering to his space and said he would shoot them. The dogs wandered over again, argument ensued, and as the owner was walking away the suspect retrieved a handgun and shot him in the back, then shot him again at close range. The wife came screaming out of their trailer and the suspect chased her down and shot her.


    A responding officer from Early, TX PD arrived and the suspect now had a rifle and opened fire on the officer. The suspect had cover behind a tree and the officer couldn't get a shot on him. Another resident saw what was happening and from an estimated 165 yards took a shot with his .357 revolver hitting the suspect in the leg, knocking him down. He hit him four more times and the officer hit him 6 times with his patrol rifle killing him.



    *****
    This is why I own and carry a gun. This is why I would own an assault rifle (165 yards with a revolver...wowzers!).

    Sometimes a 'zombie' gets pissed and shoots your dogs, you, and your wife. Will you be ready?

    And this is why we need better leash laws.

    Honestly, 165 yards. Hell of a shot. He hit him 4 times. Amazing. That guy must go to the range.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    People need to realize that even if an Officer requests your assistance, his badge DOES NOT cover your actions. I'm not saying I wouldn't help an officer in need, but you have to realize that the police department is not going to cover your liability if you act in assistance of the officer.

    Where did you get the 165 yard revolver shot from? I didn't see that in the article and find it incredibly difficult to believe that he got four rounds on target at that distance with a revolver. Maybe he did, but I'd like to see a little more verification.

    The range was the shooter's guess and like you I doubt he was at that distance to go four for four. I hate guns but I am glad they bagged him before he could hurt anyone else. This guy had to have a history.

    Just from the video, it was the man's estimation. I don't have forensics info.

    Okay. I didn't have a chance to see the video (at work). I have a very hard time believing the shots were at that distance, unless he was shooting a .357 caliber RIFLE.

    In Arizona you are exempt from liability if an officer requests your assistance.

    That is the only state I've ever heard that about, RT. I know that is NOT the case in any of the New England and Northeastern states, personally.

    Re: Guy with .357 assists responding officer

    So a guy threatens to shoot his neighbor's dog, and then shoots his neighbor, and this is a justification for loose gun laws?

    And I'm throwing the BS flag on the 165 yd. pistol shot.

    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Yes. It is a perfect example.
