"From eyewitness accounts and other evidence from the scene,"[Sheriff Thomas] Kerss said, "it appears that the suspect heavily armed himself with at least two rifles and numerous amounts of ammunition. He approached some property boundaries of neighbors and began shooting horses and randomly shooting toward houses." Four horses were killed.It is lucky no people were killed.
This maniac then approached one house and tried to force his way inside. The homeowner was having none of that, and fired 1 shot.
"At that time, the homeowner discharged a single round from inside the residence and struck him," Kerss said. "The homeowner who confronted him was not only well within his rights to take the action he did, but in stopping him, he probably helped spare some of his neighbors heartache, as well."This guy is charged with deadly conduct because a bullet had gone through the window of one residence, threatening the lives of the people who lived there. He is also charged with burglary, intent to commit assault, and four counts of cruelty to animals for the horses that perished.
The goblin is in stable condition with severe injuries.
