    GOOD: Shooting Ruled Self-Defense - Pulaski County, KY

    Civilian Gun Self-Defense Blog

    Police have not filed any charges against a Pulaski County man who they say shot and killed someone in self-defense.

    Last night, officers were called to a home on West Highway, in Science Hill, to investigate a shooting.

    They say three people, one armed with wooden club, went to the home to start a fight -- which they did.

    After a short time, police say the homeowner, Joshua Pyles, got a shotgun and asked the suspects to leave his home and property.

    They refused and continued to make threats, so Pyles fired one shot.

    One of the suspects, 34-year-old Jim Goff, was hit.

    He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    The two other suspects, Heather Goff, 29, wife of the deceased, and John Strunk, 46, Heaton Ford Road Science Hill, KY were both arrested at the scene and charged with assault 2nd degree.

    Pyles has not yet been charged in the shooting.

    The preliminary investigation indicates that Pyles was acting in self-defense in protecting himself and his family.

    The results of the investigation will be presented to the Pulaski County Grand Jury.

    Way to go Mr. Pyles. My question is why would you not listen to a man with a 12 gauge asking you to leave? You wouldn't have to ask me twice!
