Police: Teen’s fatal shooting on Tapp Drive was self-defense after attempted robbery

Phyllis Cha, Indianapolis Star
A homeowner shot and killed a teen during an attempted robbery on Indianapolis’ east side early Wednesday morning, police said.

Two people were in a car in front of their home when multiple people approached the vehicle. At least one person in this group, including the deceased, had a gun, police said.

The teen attempted to rob the people in the car, Sgt. Frank Wooten said. Wooten said officers believe the homeowner, who was detained and taken in for questioning, acted in self-defense.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police officers responded to the home in the 11900 block of Tapp Drive at about 4:20 a.m. on a report of a person shot.

White said a chase ensued when officers attempted to stop the man, who jumped a fence before allegedly pulling out a handgun.

A police officer shot the man three times in response, White said.

Sounds exactly what’s going on in many public schools and colleges today.

I’m feeling good already. Two up, two down, and at their own stoopidity.
(that, and a cuppa coffee doesn’t hurt)

Air rifle linkie broken. I was going to look and see, considering the materials and technology of the time, how long it took to pump the rifle up to full pressure; how did they measure the pressure; and how long did the pressure last before needing recharge?

Tox, from what I’ve researched, if you use the blue or yellow boolits for your gun it takes from 30 to 60 minutes to build up full pressure. If the pressure lasts for more than 4 hours contact your gunsmith. Younger guns don’t take as long to build up, but they may discharge prematurely.

The L & C Expedition Museum in Nebraska City, NE had a sample of The Air Gun on loan Very interesting place to visit.

I read or watched TV that during the 1700’s, their was an air rifle used for sniping that used some kind of container/canister to hold the pumped up air. Anyone here about it?????

I have acquired a .457 bore pre-charged pneumatic air rifle.
I bought a 4500 PSI compressor that runs off a car battery.
Takes 5+ minutes to fill the 3200 PSI tank and I might get 5 good shots out of it before the pressure drops below 100.
So I’m looking at getting a large tank with a line in.
These big bore air rifles take down wild boars and other beasties.


Here’s a great Feelgood Story. Russian prisons aren’t as nicey nice US prisons. Rot in Hell, Bitch!

I think it’s been spoken of here but I hope the “Marine” vet stays in Russian Pound Me In The Ass prison.
Also, can we send them Bowe Bergdahl and Bradley Manning as a good will gesture in exchange for a bottle of Vodka?

She can spend ALL the time she wants kneeling against the US flag & anthem. All while she’s “servicing” Strap On Sally, Big Bertha, Moribund Martha, Tease-Me Tessie, and Get-It-On Gertie. Hope Griner has thick knee pads, those Siberian prisons can get COLD.
