We have an awful lot of Nervous Nellies running around the state of Tennessee with their pew-pew-pew toys, firing them every time they’re a-skeered. Yesterday it was Sherry McLain of Lacassas, who pulled a gun on a man (some reports say he was African American) who approached her in the parking lot of a Murfreesboro Walmart.
Today we return to Murfreesboro, where a man who is apparently a veteran is inexplicably shot by a terrified driver:
It happened just before noon at the intersection of Middle Tennessee Boulevard and South East Broad Street, and witnesses said the victim was a veteran.
The man witnesses said to be a former Marine, was driving a black infinity and stopped in the road to get out of his car and say something to the 22-year-old driver of a Volvo.
The 22-year-old fired one shot from inside his car, which hit the man in the stomach and exited through his side and hit his elbow.
A witness told NewsChannel 5 that the man asked the shooter, “why did you shoot me?” The driver responded by saying,” you scared the [expletive] out of me.”
Once again, I’m going to go out on a limb and say our veteran was a person of the melanin-enhanced persuasion. Hey, I could be wrong! But I’m probably not!
BTW, happy Veterans Day! Thanks for your service! BAM!
