Sorry to hear that a man with a gun came onto your father's property one morning 40 years ago and argued about something stupid and had to shoot at a trespasser who was armed and trespassing... What are the odds? Did your father live in Parkton too???

Man trespassing with a gun. One should be able to defend their own property. Oh! I'm sorry it's the Peoples Republic of Maryland.

Ya but what they didn't say here is he wasnt trustpassing he was on state land and this guy started arguing with him asking what he was doing near there property. He was tracking a deer he shot the day before. The owners of the land told the victim to step through the opening to give them his info so they can call the cops. But before he stepped on there property at there request he unloaded his gun right in front of them like they asked. This article doesn't say that. The victim was unarmed when he got shot. He got shot after he stood there for an hour waiting and he told the guy im going back on the other side of the fence where I was to begin with. Thats when he got shot. While going back on state land where he was to begin with. And they also dont say that the man didn't just shoot once he shot twice. First time missed then second hit him. This is a crime there is no reason to why this man should have got shot.

You know there are always three sides to every story. The two sides and the truth.
Truth November 29, 2012 at 06:47 PM
The police even know his gun was unloaded....and the way he got shot was from the back side.

Imagine being in the woods with 2 guys, both with loaded shot guns, who are aggressively questioning you for an hour. You are doing your best to assure them that you are not a poacher, criminal etc. So you had enough and go to leave. They fire 2 times hitting you on your rear side in the leg. They both spend the next 10 minutes what to do as you are screaming a bleeding profusely. This is called a shotting and a crime. The guy shot is a victim.

He wasnt hunting there he was trailing a deer that he shot the day before. He was following blood trails of the deer.
