Friday shooting victim was shot in self-defense, Montgomery police say

Melissa Brown
Montgomery police believe a man fatally shot Friday evening was shot in self-defense after he opened fire on another man during a fight.

Montgomery police on Monday announced they were conducting a death investigation into the Sept. 27 shooting, rather than a homicide investigation. They have not identified the deceased.

“The circumstances surrounding the shooting initially were unknown,” MPD Capt. Regina Duckett said in a release. “Further investigation indicates that the deceased subject fired shots at an adult male during a verbal altercation. That adult male returned fire in self-defense, fatally striking the deceased. The adult male involved in the verbal altercation was not injured.”

Man fatally shoots home intruder, Sumter deputies say

By LISA MARIA GARZA
A 37-year-old man was fatally shot Saturday night by a home owner after he allegedly broke into the house following a fight over drugs earlier in the day, according to the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies responded around 9:30 p.m. to the 7300 block of County Road 647 in Bushnell and found Joshua Myers with multiple gunshot wounds. Myers was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point, where he later died.

Michael Donzero told investigators that Myers broke into his home after they had a “drug dispute” and he shot him in self defense.

    “Audie Murphy, used a field phone, a .50-cal. M2 Browning and an M1 Carbine when he fought off a German combined arms attack pretty much by himself on Jan. 26, 1945”

    Heh, guy was Signal.

      Always good to dive into the Archives and be refreshed by re-reading the stories of DRT Deadbeats, ne’er do wells, and junkies.

      And, yep, send that Gun Bunny down the Rabbit Hole of a linky article on M1s…that’ll keep him busy for awhile. “Rock-Ola…(yeah the juke box company)…” Bet those M1 Carbines made sweet music. “When the music plays…once upon a time, in your wildest dreams…”

      “…used a field phone…” “Heh, guy was signal.” A-HEM! Nah ‘beans, in that case he was FO. He wasn’t using that phone to call up a future Ms Thang wanna be Hollywood Leading Lady…He was calling in for some Arty. He wanted to be the FIRST to bring down the dam dam on Komerad with a Time on Target Fire Mission Fire Mission Fire Mission.

      Speaking of Ms Thang…I won’t make a single off color, veiled remark about the way todays Ms Thang is pursing her lips toward that gunz. Me I won’t!

        I read somewhere that when he ran out of ammo for the M1 and M2
        he started beating Nazi’s to death with the handset.
        Those things were proabably made out of Bakelite and in the
        right hands can be deadly.

    2 DRTs + 1 Ms Thang (tastefully attired and monochromatically color coordinated, as well as tastefully accessorzed) = 3 for WW to enjoy.

  3. I was on the boarding and salvage party and I would be issued an M-1 Carbine if we had to board a vessel. GM1 Smitty tells us that if anyone gives you a ration of shit, then shoot them. We didn’t have cameras following us. When in certain Liberty Ports, I stood guard at the brow (gang plank) in undress blues and white leggings (spats) with an unloaded M-1 Carbine and empty mags. Could have been before I got AJ Squared away and they were worried that I might have shot someone. I just thought about it as I’m typing out this comment.

    Ms. Thang is very well color coordinated. I especially like her 1980s style belt. I thought she was just clearing the smoke off the barrel end so the camera person can get a clear picture of her “wanting” eyes!

    I always thought Audie Murphy was Infantry, that is why the award for squared away NCO is named after him!
