For the record - I'm opposed to shooting people who present no threat and our current system of justice agrees with this. Sometimes threats are shot in the back, and sometimes fleeing people are still a threat. It's a case by case evaluation.

In other news, Mesquite man shot after attacking his grandfather
Quote:
A Mesquite man was shot after he tried to attack his 81-year-old grandfather with a knife Sunday night, according to police.
Michael Ashley Holley, 34, was medically treated and arrested. He’s been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
At around 11:15 p.m., police responded to a shooting at a residence in the 1000 block of Irene Drive in Mesquite. Holley had pulled a knife and attempted to assault his grandfather, Norman Holley, police said. Norman defended himself from the attack and shot Michael.
I suspect drugs were involved in some way.
