Good Freaking Grief could he have been any more irresponsible? Bob Owens answers
A Raleigh, NC man will face a court appearance today where he is to be arraigned on murder charges for stepping into his garage and firing a shotgun into a group of people standing outside his home.
A man will appear in court Monday for his connection with Sunday’s fatal shooting of a 20-year-old man.
Around 2:30 a.m., officers with the Raleigh Police Department located a gunshot victim, Kouren-Rodney Bernard Thomas, in the 3500 block of Single Leaf Lane in Raleigh.
Thomas was transported to WakeMed, where he died as a result of his injuries.
Authorities later arrested 39-year-old Chad Cameron Copley, who owns the home.
According to officials, Copley fired a shotgun from inside his garage, striking Thomas. Thomas was outside Copley’s garage when he was shot, authorities say.
“We have a lot of people outside our house yelling and shouting profanities,” said an unspecified 911 caller. “They were showing a firearm, so I fired a warning shot, and somebody got hit.”
Why would he go outside? Call the police, do not go outside and confront a “group” of people in the dark. If any of that group decides to break in the house, THEN use your firearm. But to fire a warning shot? This is not the movies Einstein. Indiscriminately firing a warning shot into a group of people? Not exactly legal. And, because this moron decided to play Billy Bad Ass someone is dead, and guess who is culpable?

I fired a warning shot as I am supposed to by law? Good Freaking Grief, this guy is about as clueless as they come.
