Fake News. The guy who eventually was shot was creating a loud disturbance with his vehicle. So much so that it woke me up. I was thinking WTF is that all about. Then then Jacob A. Cantrell most likely went outside to see what the cause of all the noise. Dude who was eventually shot pulled in hard and blocked the driveway and the confrontation began. The guy then found a shovel and began SMASHING the windows of Cantrell’s pick up in. Smashed the window of another car parked in the driveway too. Cantrell felt threatened enough to grab his gun and defend himself. As far as I can tell that’s what happened. I wasn’t there so I could be wrong. The guy with the mental health issues in the driver of the car with the violent behavior toward Mr Cantrell and his proporty
