I heard Drew Dotson shot and killed two guys mugging him and his son outside Mud Island after concert last wknd. Memphis cops ruled self defense. I heard he pulled a gun on someone at Jordons. Anyone know who it was?

He wounded a 3rd man! We were coming off the mud island walkway a little late, and these men jumped out and demanded all our cash, brandishing different weapons including a knife. He pulled his revolver and shot two in the head and one in the neck. Neck wound survived. All self defense.

This is so making me laugh so hard. People in Newport must be hard up for something to gossip about. The above accusations are all false! LOL

Shoot them in the leg and give them a chance to keep robbing/killing others?

Good for him for at least taking two of them off the street.

He may have kept YOU from being next to be robbed or worse.

You have to do what u have to do. When ur life is in danger then u have the right to protect ur. Shoot em in the head neck chest. Its self defence. The way our laws are if the neck wounds lives the he could sue this man for protecting his self. Now that is some bs.

you are right about suing for protecting himself, but now that he has shot the 2 in the head, their families can sue for wrongful death. The laws are screwed up big time
