4 people shot, 1 killed in dispute over dog

CALDWELL COUNTY, N.C. -- Two sheriff's deputies, an 8-year-old girl and her father are recovering after being shot by a man who was angry over the death of his dog.

The gunfire started late Wednesday night in a community northwest of Lenoir on Grandin Road near N.C. 18.

Residents in the neighborhood say Rolland Younce shot his neighbor Tony Moore and Moore's 8-year-old daughter Ashley.

"It was, from what I understand, over a pit bull dog," one neighbor told NewsChannel 36.

Younce was allegedly angry because Moore had shot and killed his dog. Neighbors say Moore shot the dog because it killed his cat.

Two Caldwell County deputies were shot when they responded to the scene. Younce was killed in an exchange of gunfire with deputies. His body was found a short distance from his home.

Ashley Moore was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Hospital in Winston Salem due to the seriousness of her injuries. Her father was transported to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte. The Moore family has asked the hospitals to withhold information on their conditions.

The two deputies -- Marty Robbins and Thomas McManus -- are expected to be OK.

McManus was treated for a gunshot wound to his forearm. He was released from a hospital late Thursday morning.

Robbins remains in stable condition at Carolinas Medical Center. Caldwell County deputies say Robbins was shot in the arm and leg.

The shooting shocked neighbors, but many of the residents told NewsChannel 36 that a battle had been brewing between the two men for some time.

"To me I think it's a little childish," one neighbor said. "The guy should have done something to try to keep the dog in his own yard."

The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation is in charge of the investigation. Officers say Animal Control removed a dead pit bull from Younce's property. A Chihuahua, which was not harmed, was also taken from the property.

Even here in The Peoples Democratic Utopian Republic of Massachusettstan, you can shoot someone else’s dog if it goes after your animals.

There was an old woman who swallowed a cow,
I don’t know how she swallowed a cow!
She swallowed the cow to catch the goat,
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog,
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
I don’t know why she swallowed the fly,
Perhaps she’ll die.

The two deputies -- Marty Robbins

Gun fight over a dog, Marty Robbins present, - Sounds like good material for a country song!

It’s really a shame a man had to lose his life over this. I’m glad the chihuahua is okay, though.

Hey, unless he’s posting from his hospital bed, we can assume Chet wasn’t involved. The real concern is whether one of our usual staunch pit bull defenders doesn’t appear on this thread.

Or those folks who will show up and say how can you be so insensitive as to make light of the situation?

Only an idiot would shoot someone over a dog!!!Especially since they did so to protect their pet. My guess is the average IQ went up a couple of points in that neighborhood.

Yes, down in the valley out in the west Texas town of El Paso, and he carries a big iron on his hip.

“To me I think it’s a little childish,” one neighbor said.

That neighbor must have had an interesting childhood. MURDEROUS came to mind as a description of Mr. Younce’s behavior when I read the article. “Childish” was never even in consideration.

yeah, i guess. i have known some awesome pits. but i have also seen some awful ones.

i am used to using 'word' where it capitalizes the proper words for you. when i am posting i dislike using the shift key. takes too much time and effort since i never really learned how to type properly.

BUT I KNOW WHERE THE CAPS LOCK KEY IS!

Yea, me too. But, the funniest thing on FR is watching folks that fall for satire and then get really upset that they fell for it because the poster didn't put (satire) in the title. Hilarious!

The Chihuahua sanctioned both the Pit Bull and the Pit Bull's owner in its own diabolical way...maybe that Chihuahua's name was Hemlock...

The MSM launched an all out attack against pit bulls several years ago too. Now its back after months of “evil pit bull” stories. Evidently the dog killed the neighbors cat and the cat owner killed the guys dog?
