But then I thought it was. You could also file this under “A failure of the victim-selection process.” Police identify man killed in apparent self-defense shooting outside midtown Walgreens.
A woman and a juvenile were sitting in a parked car at Walgreens, when a “verbal confrontation” began.
[Capt. Shellie] Seibert said Stites walked away, threw down the scooter and returned to the car with a knife. The juvenile inside the car grabbed a gun, accidentally shooting himself in the hand in the process, and shot Stites multiple times, Seibert said.
The woman drove to the hospital where they are cooperating in the investigation.
Homicide Sgt. Brandon Watkins said before 1 a.m. detectives had not determined whether any charges would be pursued. The shooting was most likely done in self-defense, he said.
While the investigation is ongoing, self-defense remains a human-right.
