It wasnt just in front of her daughter it was in front of alot of people and 8 people he shot at there was numerous witnesses, he should get charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon because my friend got shot and he had no remorse on anyone not even the 2 year old.

Do people even considered protecting themselves anymore?

You can't always count on the police. Like the saying goes, "When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

If someone was shooting at me & missed it would be the last mistake they ever made.

I wonder if alcohol had a part in this incident?
That issue was not brought up.

Did anyone see the no trespassing signs posted on Troy Remster's property.....channel 10 reporters need to get all of the facts before running a story like this and interview ALL of the witnesses not just the ones her are friends of Ms.Agee. Troy Remster is a decent human being, who has been harassed by the young people involved in this incident. GET THE FACTS BEFORE YOU RUN YOUR MOUTH!!!!!!!

Get over it honey!!!! Troy is a good person who is sick of the meth heads like you and Ms. Green stealing from him and destroying his property!!!! All eight witnesses and I know them all are thieving meth heads....channel 10 needs to interview the the friends and family members that were at Troy's when this incident happened. Bottom line is you were warned to get off his property and you didn't.

Troy Remster is a Vicious and Extremely Dangerous person, more so when he is drinking as this proves. He steals anything that is not lock up. He had a neighbor arrested after Troy started a fight and hit him. He recently set old tires on fire that almost burned his house and neighborhood and blamed it on the locals. He is a neighborhood bully. A lot of people don’t like him and his actions and wish that he never returns.

The people that Troy shot were on a legal right away. Troy had no right to post a “No Trespassing Sign” on something he doesn’t not own or have control over.

No matter what past the girl had, he had no right to shoot her or anyone else. They were unarmed and she had a little 2 year old girl in her arms.

Get a grip!!! you must be one of the meth heads who live in the neighborhood. Troy was just trying to protect his property and belongings....he owns the property, he has every right to post NO TRESPASSING SIGNS....I was there obviously you were not.

get your facts straight! what he calls private property is a private road. there is a property directly behind his that our road leads to. this little boy is a bully who gets off on hurting people weaker than himself. i know i have witnessed it several times. so before you go spouting off "cunot resident in atlanta, in???" check your facts. i got mine and so does the prosecutor.

It has been almost two years since the shooting, but Troy Remester is still free of prosecution. His next trial date is May, 2010. Just shows you that you can shoot people in Owen County and get away with it.
