The man that was shot and killed had been in another accident a few days before at which he had road rage. He pulled a gun on Mr. West and backed him up to his truck. At which time Mr. West took his gun out of his truck and fired two shots in self defense. Just before Mr. West fired his gun the other man truned his back however he was still pionting his gun at Mr. West when he was shot.Text messages from the man who was shot cell phone showed he was on his way to buy more illegal drugs. The man killed was a know hot head, had been in trouble at school before being home schooled. There had been video from a near by fast food drive in but the Decatur police never got a copy so no one will know what was on it.

Nothing you just said was true . Hunter never pulled his gun and why does it matter what he was going to do with this man cut us off and forced us to pull over . Tim west chased us through the parking lot and shot him twice on the back . I was there and saw all of it .
