Police: Man justified in shooting aggressive customer
MANDEVILLE- Authorities say a man was acting out of self-defense when he shot another man whose aggressive behavior had prompted a gas station clerk to call police.
Mandeville Police Department Assistant Chief Ron Ruple tells local media that a customer inside the store on Monday morning shot 42-year-old customer Shawn Breland after being attacked by Breland.
Ruple says the unidentified shooter is a firearms instructor and was wearing his gun in a holster on his hip. The store clerk told authorities that Breland had refused to leave the store and had berated the clerk with racial slurs.
St. Tammany Parish Coroner Charles Preston says Breland died from multiple gunshot wounds to his torso.
No charges have been filed against the customer. The case will be sent to the District Attorney's Office for review.
