Just as with the guy who beat up, strangled, and knifed Emily Silverstein to death, this guy was under the influence of a drug, accidently picked up a weapons, and accidently shot his brother. Must be crazy. Yeesh.

Simple assault? Sounds more like aggravated assault or even attempted homicide!

Based on the headline, you mean they're not going to charge the shotgun?

Funny, I thought the same thing. But I guess since they were drunk it was an accident and wont get charged with what he should have been ( aggravated assault )
