A 69-year-old war veteran and former missionary was arrested over the weekend on the suspicion of killing a 22-year-old Cuban immigrant who mistakenly arrived in his driveway because of faulty GPS directions.
Raw Story (http://s.tt/1z5Uh)

Friends who were in the car with Diaz told WSB-TV that they were trying to pick up a friend on the way to ice skating on Saturday but their GPS directed them to the wrong address.
Raw Story
Not trying be succumb to stereotypes...but really. A Cuban Immigrant heading to an ice rink in Atlanta. Don't see that combination much.

Sad that someone lost their life in the matter of course.

Worse part is that the victim tried to drive away and he still shot at them.

Maybe the killer was playing a violent video game earlier? /s

Let's go ahead and succumb to stereotypes and assume they were there to rob the home. It would certainly be a thought going through my head as the home owner. But I'd hope I have enough restraint to wait to see their next steps before walking outside and firing a shot into the air then followed by shooting again immediately into the vehicle.

At a certain point preemptive action becomes criminal.

Maybe if they Cuban guys had guns they could have defended themselves.

The arrest warrant suggested that Sailors had shot Diaz with a .22 caliber pistol. He was charged with malice murder. A fvcking .22 pistol, what a shot

He could put someone's eye out with that thing.

From my understanding it's the weapon of choice for professional hitmen. Fire a shot into someone's head and the bullet rattles around in the skill turning the brain into swish cheese.

Seriously? Terribly sad
Hopefully the guy is put away for a long time and stripped of his rights.

The writers of CSI have to get their information, or perhaps misinformation, from somewhere.

I don't know anything about hitmen, but I have also heard/read that the lowly .22 is also the favorite weapon of deer poachers. If you hear a centerfire rifle go off in the backcountry (outside of deer season), that's going to get your attention. If you hear a .22, most people won't bat an eye.

I typically hunt deer with a .50 Beretta. It makes cutting the heads off for trophies a cinch because the body has been blown off.
