Just Because You Know Someone, Doesn’t Mean They Can’t Be a Threat

In fact you’re more likely to run into problems with someone you know. DeSoto County man shoots neighbor in self-defense, sheriff’s office says.

Investigators said James Leon Newman, 69, shot his neighbor Lucian “Butch” Angelo, 78, around 3 p.m. after an argument turned into a physical altercation at a home in the 8700 block of Tulane Road.

The guy who got shot died at a local hospital. Police and the DA believe it was self-defense, but the case will be sent to a grand jury to decide if charges will be filed.

Self-defense is a human-right.
