[Sgt. Steve ] Licis said nobody was hurt. He said the shooter likely will face a charge of discharging a firearm in city limit.
Licis said information would be sent to the prosecutor's office to determine if any other charges are warranted.
Licis said Missouri's Castle Doctrine, which allows residents to use deadly force to protect themselves and their property, would not apply in this case because there was not ample reason for the man with the gun to believe he was in danger. Licis said the two men knew each other.
How much you wanna bet this guy gets a slap on the wrist and continues to enjoy his guns? Any takers?
