Man shot by police in Litchfield on Thanksgiving Day dies

Steven Spearie
A man shot by police after displaying a handgun in a credit union parking lot in Litchfield on Thanksgiving morning died the same day, according to information released by Illinois State Police on Tuesday.

The suspect was 41-year-old Shane Michael Boston, said Melaney Arnold, a spokeswoman for ISP responding to an inquiry from The State Journal-Register.

An online court document from earlier in 2022 listed Boston’s residence as Eagarville, a village in Macoupin County.

Boston died after being transported to HSHS St. Francis Hospital in Litchfield.

An ISP trooper, Montgomery County sheriff’s deputy and two Litchfield police officers all fired their service weapons, according to an ISP news release last week.

Thanks again, Gun Bunny. Because you asked:

Update!

Surviving Home Invaders May Be Charged with Murder After Resident Shot and Killed One of Them in Self-Defense

EUGENE VOLOKH
Atlanta TV station 11alive (Addie Haney) reports:

Police now believe four people were involved in a shooting in east Atlanta’s Gresham Park neighborhood and that it started as an attempted home invasion. One person has since died in connection to the shooting, according to police….

At this time, police said the shooting “appears justified” and no charges are expected to be filed against the the person who fired the shot.

The three surviving subjects are expected to be charged with felony murder because of the death of their alleged accomplice. The two adults will also be charged with home invasion.

What’s with the murder charges?, you might ask.

No Score

Read on, Eugene’s reference is well worth the time.

“Displaying”. What does that even mean?
Was he brandishing the gun, waving it around and threatening people?
Was he showing his friend, “hey! look what I just bought!” ?
Was he checking its status? (Loaded/unloaded, safety on/off)

Too much NOT said, to determine if this was a righteous shoot or not.
And the deceased is unable to answer any questions.

As for Ms Brunette…..that green (un)dress matches her very well, accentuating those perky sweater puppies.
And who can overlook that shrunk-in-the-hot-wash Colt style 9mm/380. Strategically placed on a well turned thigh, in a well placed holster.
Dressed for success, and a formal dinner date too.
What’s not to like?

There was a pistol? Missed that, musta been the slobber on the screen. Good thing I got called out for some Escort Duty FIRST(grins) Thing this morning. Would have played hell driving thru that frog strangler if I had of seen her…Hell I prolly wouldn’t of left. Proof that AW1Ed loves us and PAYS attention to our requests. Made mention the other day about garter holsters.

I think Mz “I’d Be Her Personal Slave” Thang is leaning more to auburn or ginger haired v brunette. With gray/hazel eyes. Could be the light, only her ob/gyn knows for sure. Them blouse bunnies are for shore real, so are those get along limbs. I’d be willing to find out. My My My and Lawd hab Mercy! Wonder if she knows I cook, too?

ROFLOLMFAO! Literally!
I don’t care if it can be done…or not.
Just that visual alone is PRICELESS
Thx, Roh-Dawg. I needed that.

(and the sad thing is, I don’t have anyone near me that I can share this with for a gut-busting belly laugh. Not co-workers, not family. They’re all civilians (god bless their pea-pickin’ hearts) and just. wouldn’t. get. it)
