Update- Shooting in Newton County deemed self-defense

By Jeff Lehr
STARK CITY, Mo. — A 36-year-old man was being treated for gunshot wounds after he allegedly attacked another man with a machete Thursday at a residence near Stark City, and the victim grabbed a rifle and shot him in self-defense.

Newton County Sheriff Chris Jennings said deputies responded to a report of a domestic disturbance on Norway Road and found Cody S. Bowman, 36, there with gunshot wounds, and Joseph Ward, 23, with an injury from having been struck in the head with a machete.

Bowman was taken to a Joplin hospital for treatment of his wounds. Assault charges were filed on him Friday, and the sheriff indicated he would be transported to the Newton County Jail once he is released from the hospital. Bowman is charged with first-degree assault, first-degree burglary and two counts of armed criminal action.

    Virginia ain’t Virginia no mo’, TJ must be quite angry up there.
    AK…ew. I thought this place had class!

    The Stark City one is a repeat from yesterday.
    The Virginia case makes me wonder: Was the Business Employee under a protective order not to shoot at people looting his business or to stay away from a kid that was looting his business? I am guessing he failed to warn them before he shot, and they were running away when he fired.

    4:53am? That doesn’t seem like normal business hours for most places. The article says the yutes “broke into the store early Sunday” and were “stealing cash and merchandise”. So, the employee lit them up. And he gets charged with “malicious wounding, reckless handling of a firearm and violation of a protective order”?
    Seems like he hit what he was aiming at, hardly reckless handling. He was shooting a burglar, nothing malicious about that.
    And he violated a protective order? The Commonwealth of Virginia issues protective orders for teen-aged burglars now?

      VA’s gone commie– be helpless or else, citizen!

      The protective order he violated was being in possession of a firearm, as his right to do so had been revoked. Whether it was for good reason or not, is yet to be known. Remember, we lawfully abiding gun owners do not want a free for all, or to be as one dimensional as our opposition.

    What an ugly little mutant. If you have to own an AKM, at least get one with the classical wooden furniture and/or traditional down folding stock…

    Arlington has always been Virginia’s version of San Francisco, except less human excrement (hopefully)…

    Yep, the thugs are now enabled by the tyrants that rule the Old Dominion. How dare that store owner try to protect his goods, and his self, from the good boys who were just trying to get enough money for new choir robes. How else are they to pay for them?

    Wonder if that was his Mama and Grandmother that the drunk dirt bag beat up?

    Mr. Bowman should also be charged with FIRST degree stupidity.

    Hope everything is good around the house and family Bro. You’re late, but we will not ask you to give an accounting of yourself. We understand how they’re circumstances that can affect their situations over there.

      Yeah, it’s called ‘work.’ Some grumpy campers here today, good thing I spent some time putting a little something together to lighten up.
