Remember about two years ago when a neighbor spat erupted in gunfire? Here's a refresher:


Man on lawnmower had charge reduced to misdemeanor and was sentenced to time served.

https://www.indystar.com/story/news/crime/2018/01/05/feuding-johnson-county-neighbor-sentenced-time-served/1006935001/

So they shook hands and became best of friends.

C'mon, guys. They don't live in Disneyland.

I predict only one way for this one to end.

Am I reading that right? Guy waves his handgun in the air, neighbor shoots him in the chest and it's ruled self defense for the shooter?

Just went through the video news story. We don't hear if the shootee made verbal threats like...I am going to shoot your butt...when he displayed the firearm.

Seem pretty convenient that the shooter had a video camera running at the exact time of the incident. Weird angle also...was the Go Pro camera in the shooter's DOG?

Don't know I would wait to see if the man on the lawnmower was going to shoot or how well he can shoot.

Here's the original thread. There are links in the posts that give additional information on the history between the two. This wasn't their first rodeo.

I'm still working on the man that got hit 4 times in the chest and got up and walked away. What was the other guy shooting?
That occurred to me also...that is one tough SOB. Makes me re-think calibers that don't start with a 4 and end with either a 4 or a 5. It sounds like he was hit center mass.

After backing up on the lawnmower the guy pulled out a gun and then extended his gun hand towards the firefighter. That would have been enough for me. Thank God he had the video on his side.

It makes me wonder if we all need to wear body cams when out in the public arena.

well it didn't tear his arm off so it couldn't have been a 38 Spl!!
likely another black powder caliber !

Does the shooter feel he is in jeopardy of eminent bodily harm? That's the test, and beyond shadow of a doubt is the prosecutions burden.

Now, if I saw Ricky with a lawnmower, I'd feel threatened, and I'm not even a blade of grass!

I have several BP revolvers whose caliber starts with a 4. One of 'em even has a .45ACP conversion cylinder.
