    it was one of the owners who shot him when he was walking away, he didn't die from the gun shot, he died because the guy pepper sprayed him and he couldn't breath and was having trouble breathing. They just didn't give you all the details here on the news and leave alot out!

    "Shot in the calf and he dies?" I would like to know how this happened. It certainly seems a shot in the calf is survivable.
