Mardi Gras shooter turns self in...this is going to be an interesting one on Tulane/Broad
quote:

Attorney Lionel "Lon" Burns said 21-year-old Eddie Dingle was holding his infant daughter when a melee broke out between two groups of spectators at the parade and someone struck him in the head with a pipe wrench. When he saw someone charging at his mother, Dingle pulled out a pistol with his free hand and shot the other man dead, Burns said.


quote:

The victim takes off his shirt and comes charging at the guy who's in a daze and has the baby in his arms," Burns said Friday. "The dad, at that point, decides, 'I have to use deadly force to protect my family.' " Asked why Dingle ran from the scene if he felt he had acted justifiably, Burns said, "He and his family were not going to stay out there and be attacked."

I feel like a pipe wrench would have done more damage than that.

I'm betting there's some video of this somewhere.

That looks like a "punch me in the eye so I can make up a story" injury.

Will be interesting to see if the evidence supports his story.

It’s still illegal to have a gun anywhere around the parade routes

If true then give the guy a medal. If false, the chair.

I'd suffer those consequences if having it saved my family.

frick, I've seen a few fights break out on the parade route down St. Charles. I wouldn't doubt that happened and I don't blame the guy for shooting him. Just lucky no one shot him after that.

What's the plan for after his attorney is suspended?

Really? Is this a parish or state law?

Idk, even if he lied about the pipe... if some dude was attacking me with my kid, even with backscratcher, it would take a measured determination whether or not he eats lead

If his story is true, I have no problem with his decision to defend his family.
