    Odd shooting situation


    Found this in the paper. Really can't go into Armed Citizen Success stories, and no real humor in it. The article doesn't give too much info. Although it is pretty bad when a son and father have a shootout in their own house.

    Son shoots dad, police say
    An argument late Friday led to a son shooting his father in Florence, police report.

    At about 11:37 p.m., Florence Police responded to 8428 Pleasant Valley Road for a call of a shooting. Officers learned that 46-year-old Mike McCann had been shot with what appears to be a 9 mm handgun by his son, 21-year-old, Eric Mayo, who also lives at the home.

    The men apparently were involved in an escalating domestic argument. At some point Mayo was heard to say, “Is this going to end in a gun fight?" police said. At that point, both men went to their bedrooms and retrieved handguns. Mr. McCann came back to the top of the stairs with gun in hand asking where Mayo was.

    Mayo called out to McCann, “Dad, do you have a gun?"

    McCann replied he did and at that point Mayo stepped around a wall and fired four or five shots in the direction of McCann striking him twice, once in the abdomen and once in the right thigh.

    McCann then retreated back to his bedroom where he was found by police.

    Mayo placed his gun down on a pool table and waited for police to arrive and was arrested without incident.
    McCann, who was conscious, was transported to St. Luke West Hospital and subsequently airlifted to University Hospital. His condition is unknown.

    Mayo has been charged with first-degree assault, a class B felony, and wanton endangerment, a class D felony.

    That's just a bad situation.

    I can't tell whether it's more ugly or more stupid.

    They should have waited until High Noon & gone out in the street after each had a shot of whiskey in the town saloon.
