Man shot, killed in Sharpes mobile home, investigators say

SHARPES, Fla. — Investigators are looking at self-defense as a possibility in a Brevard County shooting death.

Neighbors said Clint Back, 34, was shot in the face and killed Saturday night in his mobile home in the small community of Sharpes.

But the question is, was it murder or self-defense?

Brevard County detectives say they know who fired the shot, and have not arrested him.
Authorities are not saying what the disagreement was about that led to the shooting.

A mid-week trifecta, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes, with three up, three down. The paintball incident smacks of self-inflected wounds, but stupidity should be painful.

It doesn’t require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires to people’s minds. — Samuel Adams American Patriot

    Turning out to be a pretty decent week on the FGS payouts. The winning keeps me grinning. Houston and Sharpes may end up going bad for the shooter tho…you are right, stupidity should be painful.

    Nice gun pr0n! This one from your personal collection? Seems like I recall you making mention of SW 686. They do make nice hand cannons. The S&W Engineers did a nice job of designing something that will actually work and break/ poke holes in things. Sometimes they get it right.

      The 681 is the same cannon but sans rear sights. Troopers version.
      Had one but lost it the sea while fishing.

        Yep, this “triggers” my memory banks, thinks you’ve posted that pic before. Still kinda struggling with that whole short term memory thing. More in the details part v overall. My version like yours was stolen when what became ex wife # 2 left the truck unlocked in a sketchy place. She pitched a fit when I wanted to replace it. Now they are just a little too spendy and hard to find.

        They look nice and fat.
        Got a catalog number?

    Paintball guns are as close to the real thing as you can get without killing someone. Those paint pellets can HURT! They are not for casual fun and games like airsoft or plastic pellet “guns”. The Four Rules of Gun Safety should apply as equally to paintball gunz as to gunpowder gunz.

      Hah, a 13 time convicted felon in need of a neuticle (or two?)

      He’s definitely in deep doo-doo.

    • MI Ranger says:

      “…a proclivity to store drugs in unconventional locations…” sounds like he may already have an issue with anal leakage! He’ll be a favorite in prison.

        But only for those inmates who find his anoose not too loose, like one of our BJT&T Deli faves, Mr. Tiny.

    • AW1Ed says:

      Can’t fix stupid, but you can neuter it. Thanks, Berliner, I’ll us this to head up tomorrow’s FGS, to make sure the article gets all the attention it deserves.

    Was he shot with a Sharpes rifle?
