Aggreed, not enough info. The 'next-door-neighbor' goes over, an arguement ensues, and the 'neighbor' punches the guy........Not enough information to really think much of it. Not being familiar with GA law I don't know if a permit is required to have a gun as well as to carry concealed. The person who was shot may have made threats prior to striking the other person. Depending on ages, physical condition and numerous other things the shooter may have been in legitimate fear for his life.
kind of depends on whether the neighbor was invited over or not and whether his intentio was to rob the shooter...i'm guessing the 2, who "had enjoyed a home cooked meal together" at one time, werent really i that type of situation...Is the "Castle Doctrine" in effect in GA? If it is there's no questions, the neighbor entered the hotel room, threatened the man who had contracted the room for the night, his castle, he protected himself against a threat. No need to retreat! At least that's how it was taught to us at a recent CCW class. Depending on what the shooter told the police when they arrived. I'm still learning???????
