Why is so hard to believe that four shots could have been fired at an intruder? If someone busts into my house and I have a gun, I'm probably firing away.

Not saying I believe this guy's story necessarily, just a general question.

Not to say that this wasn't a crime of passion BUT, if I saw an intruder and had a gun, I'd probably go through half a clip.

This guy knew how to handle a weapon and it can't be that hard to determine the difference between an intruder and your girlfriend. I'm sure most people would fire off a couple rounds , but this seems kind of excessive.
I can't pretend to really know how it would play out , but I'm leaning on this being murder. However he could of been really eager to shoot somebody.

After the first head shot, I'm positive she fell to the ground limp. The last 3 were out of hate, resentment, whatever you want to put it as.

I agree if there was an intruder I would unload my weapons magazine but only if I wasn't standing right in front of him/her. If they were behind a wall/object.

Is it stated that the 1st shot was a head shot?

Firing 4 shots should take a second? I'm not arguing whether he thought it was an intruder or just wanted to off his gf, just that firing a gun 4 times doesn't sound excessive in taking someone down.

Emptying a clip or having to reload? Probably excessive.

No offense, but I would hope as a gun owner you would seek out proper training which would advise against such actions. Key factor to firing a gun is controlled and proper shot placement even while under stress. Just firing willy nilly leads to wrongful death and accidents.

I agree with your point about proper training. I just don't see four shots being that outrageous.

That intruder story sounds like ******** to me. Ofcourse the man deserves his day in court and I will not fully condemn him...yet.

Considering the fact that the cops had been called out to his place to settle domestic disputes between them before, I'd say he definitely fits the profile of an abuser.

I agree. Four shots isn't outrageous. In a defensive situation the proper number of shots is always the number of shots it takes to stop or turn back your attacker. Doesn't matter if it takes fifty. Use how ever many you need to. If you aren't trained then just aim center mass and unload. Its not so much the number of shots you want to worry about as much as the aim of the shots. Besides, the intruder is doing enough damage without you ruining your own drywall and molding.

Four shots is two double-taps, which is still pretty standard shooting when trained. Panic shots could be considerably more.

So are we just ignoring the domestic violence claims? I mean my girl Rachel brought it up but everyone else seems obessed with how many bullets the dude pumped into his girlfriend.

Not ignoring it just discussing what to do in a defensive situation. He probably did murder her if the domestic violence claims are true. But maybe she was beating him, and he bought the gun to defend himself? There is a real problem with guys not wanting to admit a girl is beating them. I would need to hear more.

The intruder story also seems bollocks to me because (a) 4 shots and (b) he had a history of domestic violence.

Hope "Blade Runner" rots. Let's see how he fends for himself in jail without those awesome, million dollar legs.

I feel bad for laughing at that exchange.

Even it turns out to be an accident it is still a huge tragedy for her loved ones. And his image and career are dead now, you can't come back from shooting your girlfriend to death even if it was an accident.

C'mon man. You don't seriously believe this waify supermodel had some buffed out Olympian, gun-nut at her physical mercy, right? Get real.

Sure, domestic violence goes both ways, but in the vast, VAST majority of cases it's the man abusing the woman. Let's not pretend the woman-abusing-man thing happens even remotely as often. (And not to stereotype, but when the woman abuses the man it's usually because she's more physically dominant, like a huge bruiser, not a blonde bombshell that weighs a hundred pounds soaking wet)

If reports that the neighbors heard them arguing and screams coming from the house before the gunshots are true, that seems to be clear domestic violence/murder to me.

I'm sure he would've been willing to plead self-defense considering he was facing a murder charge. Instead, he told the police what sounds like an unconvincing burglar story.

who knows? Maybe he's one of those people who tells a lie to get out of something and then actually starts to believe his own story...
