If someone comes to your home and repeatedly discharges a firearm and you respond by opening fire on them, the usual general presumption is that the person who came to the home and opened fire is the bad guy… so why is the 20-year-old who defended his mother in jail, while the man who brought a gun to the home and opened fire isn’t?
A Christmas day shooting sent one man to the hospital and another to jail.
Deputies said 20-year-old Alex Becker faces assault charges after he fired a shotgun at 43-year-old Jeffery Joseph on Sandspur Lane.
Investigators said Joseph confronted Becker’s mother and fired gunshots. Deputies said in response, Becker grabbed a shotgun and fired at Joseph.
Becker was taken to jail and given a $100,000 bond.
The shooting is still under investigation and deputies said more charges could be pending.
