#1 Single shot to the chest. Heart shot. Good placement.
Gee died from cardiac arrhythmia and exsanguination due to a gunshot to the chest
Young whippersnapper thug; just didn't understand plain English and a directive. No respect for his elders. Bled out and died.

#2 Will this count as one of the gun-related deaths the gun grabbers whine about?

#6 Who the hell would name a kid Darvon?
That's probably what set him on the wrong path.
Of course, they were too poor to afford the rest of a last name. All they had was the Letter G and a few memories of Big Bird.

#7 "cardiac arrhythmia": His heart stopped going "thub blub thub blub" and went "thhhhhp!" but only briefly.
"exsanguination": His blood ran out. For awhile. Then stopped.

#8 #6 Who the hell would name a kid Darvon? Or Gee? Maybe an Amish name.

Gack, vicious/vicous head colds and FP don't mix.

#11 I'm not entirely confident this is the actual story. All involved knew each other. Good chance gun was not legal. Police only got the story and statements after all parties (except the dead guy) had a chance to figure out what to say. Could have been they figured Grandpa was better suited to be the trigger puller than some other family member, say the granddaughter.
Just color me cynical.

#12 Everybody in Evansville knows each other Glen. I suspect the investigation will be completed by this afternoon or tomorrow morning.

#13 My feeble looking 83 year old (at the time) father who lived alone and was almost deaf and of poor vision, noticed with the visual senses he had left, a mangy looking trespasser on his property. He called out from the back door to the trespasser to leave, who realizing my father's frail state, decided to come right on up to the house. As he started to step up on the back porch my father pointed a semi-automatic AR15 with a 30 round banana clip at the suddenly shocked tresspaser and explained, "I may be about blind but if you move before the police arrive, I bet at least one of these thirty rounds will hit you."
When you get older you only have to adjust your "security apparatus" accordingly, he explained to his kids and grand kids.

#14 Fred, his mother named him Darvon for her favorite opioid drug. She probably used it while she was pregnant.
Was talking while back to a person who describes themself as a inner city student tutor of sorts, big city on The Great Lake. Had twins as pupils named Salt and Tequila. I asked if that was a joke. No.

#16 Dedicated Criminals, whether in sole or in a group, will almost always attack from a position of perceived dominance, not parity i.e. John Wayne style "Mano-a-Mano", because they need to strike quickly + get out quickly.
THE "CHICAGO" WAY.
A single-shot or low-fire "defensive" weapon like anti-Gun Lefties want won't cut it agz them, while the State continues to routinely cut or divert, etc. $$$ budget appropriations from police and first-response services.
IN SUM, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, THE STATE HAS SHOWN THAT IT CANNOT OR WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PERMANENTLY OR RELIABLY PROTECT JOHN Q. PUBLIC UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, BE IT AS PER "PERFECT" GUN CONTROL OR EVEN IFF NO ONE HAD ANY GUNS AT ALL.
As was found out towards the end of the Cold War, even Army-Police States = Commie Secular Totalitarian States' USSR + China were found to had sufferr from horrific mass crime incidents where Guns andor "Assault Guns" as a class were NOT involved + where the State had either failed to detect what was occurring, or had the incidents quietly repressed for the sake of protecting the credibility of the Party + Communism-Socialism.
I AM REMINDED OF "RAMBO IV", NEAR THE END OF THE MOVIE WHERE AFTER KILLING ALL THE BAD GUYS + RESCUING SOME SEEMINGLY BENIGN CONSERVATIVE MISSIONARIES, THE LATTER TURN OUT TO BE LEFTY WACKOS WHOM DECIDE TO PROPERLY REWARD RAMBO FOR THEIR SALVATION BY TELLING RAMBO HE HAS TO BE TURNED IN TO VARIOUS GOVT AUTHORITIES FOR HIS GOOD DEED, I.E. FOR ALL THE BAD GUYS HE KILLED DURING THEIR RESCUE. AT THE SAME TIME, THE MISSIONARIES WEIRDLY-N-MYTERIOUSLY-BUT-ONLY-COINCIDENTALLY/PCORRECTLY ALSO SEE NO REASON
FOR MAD/MASS-KILLER JOHN RAMBO TO GET PISSED OFF AND RETURN THEM TO THE HANDS OF THEIR BRUTAL CAPTORS. LASTLY, THE MISSIONARIES ALSO DON'T SEE THE NEED FOR THEMSELVES TO VOLUNTARILY WALK BACK TO THE CAMP OF THEIR CAPTORS.
These wackos are the same kind of Waffling Politicos whom will want no one to have have a gun(s), then bitch because those that do didn't use their weapons to save the wackos' personal property(s) or loved ones, etc. when bad guys strike.
