A Georgia man has been taken into custody after firing multiple shots at a rival, and killing him MTO News has learned.
The incident happened inside a popular Atlanta sportsbar, when two men got into a heated argument. The altercation, and the eventually deadly shooting was all captured on video, and live-streamed across social media. So far the video has been seen more than 5,000,000 times.
The video begins by showing the two men arguing, MTO News observed. One man – wearing a white t-shirt – appears to be the aggressor, and the other man – the shooter – seemed calm and collected.
But things changed, and the gunman moved nose to nose with his opp, and appeared to chest bump him. That’s when all hell broke loose.
MTO News observed that after the gunman bumped the rival, the rival immediately retaliated with a barrage of punches.
The gunman then can be seen pulling out his gun, and letting off multiple shots against his opp.
According to social media reports, the man in the white shirt was killed.
The gunman is preparing to use Georgia’s Stand Your Ground law as a defense to a homicide charge. Under Georgia’s law, if you are justified in using threats of force, force, or deadly force to protect yourself or others, to protect your habitation, your home, your car, your place of business, or to protect your property other than your habitation, the law in Georgia says you have no duty to retreat and you can stand.
So what do you think – did he stand his ground, or was this murder?
