LETTERS TO THE EDITOR - Article on shooting missed some facts


It angers me the way an earlier article was written regarding the shooting at Fort Walla Walla Park. It makes it sound like my brother got into an argument with the older man and then just shot him. You need to get your facts straight.

My brother was defending a woman. The man charged at my brother and yelled "I'm gonna kill you!" My brother thought he pulled out a weapon in the process of coming at him, and my brother fired two warning shots into the ground before striking the man in the leg with a bullet after he continued to pursue him.

The story makes my brother sound like a punk, when he's not, and you should be thanking him. Not only did he protect that woman and himself, but he is a veteran of the military.
