    Fatal Shooting in Doniphan Appears to be Case of Self-Defense

    JULY 14, 2006 - Posted at 2:21 p.m. CDT



    DONIPHAN, MO - A Doniphan man being held for the fatal shooting of another man following an altercation in a home shortly after midnight Thursday was released from the Doniphan jail this morning shortly after 2 a.m., after investigators determined that he shot and killed 36-year-old Rodney Ray in self-defense.

    Doniphan Police Chief Richard Joyner told K8 News that Ray entered the home of 25-year-old Michael Boone around midnight Wednesday evening and began arguing with a woman the chief described as Ray's girlfriend inside a bedroom in the home. Chief Joyner said investigation shows that Ray then entered the home's living room and began arguing with Boone, who by that time had armed himself with a .22-caliber pistol and then asked Ray to leave. The chief says when Ray ignored Boone's request, Boone fired two "warning shots" into the floor of the residence, at which point Ray allegedly advanced on Boone as if he were going to attack him. When that happened, Boone fired a fatal shot at Ray.

    Doniphan officers were called to the residence at 12:27 a.m. Upon their arrival in the 700 block of East Washington Street, they found Ray on his back with a woman on top of him trying to administer CPR. Upon closer inspection, officers found Ray with no pulse, suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.

    Boone was taken into custody as the Doniphan PD was joined in the investigation by the Ripley County Sheriff's Department and the Missouri Highway Patrol. Chief Joyner says further investigation determined that Boone shot Ray in self-defense, and he was released after being held for 24 hours.

    Joyner stressed that the investigation is not yet closed, and a coroner's inquest is planned.

    Could be some murky waters in this sort of incident but - seemingly - the mouse .22 proved its ability to do lethal harm.

    Yeah... seems a little shady but hey.... I'll give it to him if he actually fired two warning shots into the floor. He pretty well demonstrated his willingness to shoot - boo on the assailant for ignoring that.

    sounds like some kind of domestic dispute. Gotta wonder why people have to mix it up so much over the stupidest things.

    People argue over the dumbest things. This sounds like a self defence case. Hey, do not sell the 22LR short.
