Old Enough to Know Better

Posted on the 10 October 2011 by Mikeb302000
I was first shocked at the age of this shooter in these circumstances, expecting that someone this old would have learned better impulse control over the years.
Then I got a look at the photo; he's a crabby looking old geezer, if ever there was one.  I admit to wondering if this is the same expression found on some of the commenters who use extremely offensive language as they sit at their computers...
From CBS Minnesota:

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — An 81-year-old man is in custody after telling police he shot and killed someone in Burbank Township.  Police say they received a call around 7:22 p.m. Saturday from Delbert Huber, who said he was at a residence on the 28000 block of 44th Street Northeast, where he committed a fatal shooting.  When police arrived, they found Huber with the body of a 43-year-old man, who had apparently suffered a gunshot wound.  Huber, 81, was with his 45-year-old son Timothy Huber at the time of the shooting. He told police he went to the residence early Saturday morning, got into a confrontation with the man and shot him.  Huber and his son were arrested at the scene. Huber could face a charge of second-degree murder and his son, Timothy, was arrested for possible charges of liability for crimes of another and aiding an offender.  Both are from rural Paynesville and are currently being held at the Kandiyohi County Jail.  The name of the deceased has been withheld, pending family notification.
