Not a Real Gun

Wabash County deputy shoots, wounds man while serving warrant

WABASH, Ind. (AP) — A northern Indiana sheriff’s deputy shot and wounded a 51-year-old man who was holding what he mistakenly believed was a real gun while serving a search warrant at an apartment, police said Wednesday.

The man was taken to a Fort Wayne hospital after Tuesday night’s shooting in Wabash. In a news release, the Indiana State Police, which is investigating the shooting, said in a news release that the man was in stable condition and was expected to make a full recovery.

The shooting happened about 8:30 p.m. as officers with the Wabash County Sheriff’s Department and the Wabash Police Department were entering an apartment residence to serve a search warrant for a narcotics investigation, police said.

Florida sheriff: Grandpa’s shooting may be ‘stand your ground’ case

NAVARRE — Officials are investigating a fatal shooting at a Florida Panhandle gas station as a possible “stand your ground” case.

James McCullar, 25, is accused of shooting his son’s grandfather, Richard William Dye, 57, during an argument in Navarre last Thursday, Santa Rosa County Sheriff Bob Johnson in a news conference.

The shooting happened during a prearranged meeting in which McCullar was going to pick up his son from Dye, the sheriff said.

Johnson said McCullar had not been charged yet because investigators are trying to determine whether he was acting in self-defense.

The pair had been engaged in an argument over the phone before the meeting because McCullar wanted to take the boy to Tennessee, Johnson said.

Detectives have viewed security camera footage that shows McCullar and his wife driving into the parking lot at the Shell gas station, the sheriff said.

“Video evidence supports the fact that as soon as they pulled in … Mr. Dye approached the car in a very aggressive manner, yanked the door open and an altercation occurred,” Johnson said. “At that time, Mr. McCullar shot Mr. Dye, and Mr. Dye expired on scene.”

No the FIRST time we’ve seen a dumbass take a “not a real gun” to “this IS a real gun fight”. Sounds like this dumbass may have been sampling his product a little too much.

Brought my own H2O supplies with me to Flur-ruh-duh. Didn’t want to take the chance of drinking the local sources. People cray cray down heah. Saw my fair share of developing “road rage” on the ride down. I think Jeff-LPH3 has the right idea on having filters on his tap. Grandpa shoulda chilled out a little more.

Anybody else still in a semi food coma?


Our water supply up here has always been pretty good but in spite of such, traditionally our family has always used in-line water filters. Not the cheapest option but a helluva lot cheaper than prescribed med’s and/or a hospital stay..

No, woke up chipper and happy because someone advised me to maintain my golden elixir intake along with the odd nicotine tube…
Thank you Dr. GB.

Your right KoB, when you cross the Fl. line, start thinking about either a water filter or a genuine under the kitchen sink counter water purifer. Am still banging on all 8 cylinders so far,so good. Purifiers filter out minerals while filters don’t.


That was never a good idea to come up with the hi viz identifier on a ‘not a real gun’. You can’t expect LE to make that split second decision when your life is on the line especially when the bad guy uses it as camouflage.

It is never an idea to demonstrate the possession of a fake gun in a confrontation with Police. That fake gun can get you real dead if you do not do as you are told.


My question is – why in hell did 51 yr old Wabash, Indiana man decide to put a repro-gun in his hand while the police were in the process of serving him a search warrant – seems to me that producing a replica gun during police questioning, serving a warrant, etc, is almost kin to Wile E. Coyote striking a match in powder magazine and traditionally, we ALL know that one never worked out too well for the coyote..

As for Granddad – really think he should’ve used more words and less bullets but now he and both families will now have to live with his terrible momentary decision.
As we all know and unlike Warner Bros cartoons, you can’t undo or take the bullets back.

The hard thing for LEO’S to worry about are perps that have real guns and paint the tip of the barrel/slide to make it look like a toy gun. So Mr. Dye didn’t Dye after he got capped.
