New Details Released About Night Of Slinger Shooting(WI) ^ | 8 March, 2012 | NA

Posted on 03/10/2012 10:16:57 AM PST by marktwain

SLINGER, Wis. -- WISN 12 News has uncovered new information about the Slinger homeowner who shot a man on his porch.

As of Thursday, there was still no decision on whether the shooter will face criminal charges. But 12 News got a better handle on the timeline of events of the shooting that occurred early Saturday.

Police said they responded to a noise complaint from a party at the Slinger home at about 12:20 a.m. Saturday. At 2 a.m., a man next door called to report that he had shot an intruder in his home.

Police said they found 20-year-old Bo Morrison dead on the porch.

"Nobody heard the shot. Even the police told me they didn't hear the shot," Morrison's friend, Danielle Alvaro, said on Sunday.

Morrison and others had run away from the party to avoid underage drinking tickets, police said.

The prosecutor confirmed officers were still at the scene when the neighbor shot Morrison.

It was the first shooting since the governor signed the Castle Doctrine into law in December. The doctrine says a person is privileged to use force against someone "unlawfully and forcibly entering" his dwelling.

No one answered the door at the shooter's home again Thursday afternoon. His back porch showed no sign of forced entry, police said.

The district attorney said the homeowner voluntarily submitted to a blood test that night and showed no evidence of intoxication.

Guests said the homeowner had complained about the noise before the shooting.

The district attorney said that while the Castle Doctrine can protect a shooter from prosecution when someone unlawfully enters his home, it's not a free pass; it depends on the related circumstances.

So, investigators continue to interview the many guests who were there that night and analyze the physical evidence.

The district attorney said there will be no decision this week.

They are setting this guy up to bust him.

The timeline doesn’t support their story that the dead guy was an innocent party.

Cops responded to the noise complaint at the house where the party was at at 1220am. The homeowner next door shot the guy at 2am yet the people who were at the party say that they had all run from the cops when they got to the party house and that the guy who was shot was simply hiding.

Hiding for over an hour in sub-freezing temperatures?

The doctrine says a person is privileged entitled to use force against someone "unlawfully and forcibly entering" his dwelling.

That's better.

The shooter’s porch. It was enclosed. From another story:

“Friends say even though Bo has had past ruins with the law, what happened early Saturday was no crime. These friends want the shooter to face justice.”

I wonder if he was an aspiring rap artist.

From the Wisconsin forum:

“There is a great deal that we don’t know and I do hope the facts support the need to use deadly force. I do grow weary of the never-ending media quotes from friends/neighbors/family in cases like this. They always imply, “he was such a good boy”. Three closed and three open cases in Wisconsin Circuit Court in the past three years for under age drinking, obstructing/resisting, bail jumping, disorderly conduct and battery don’t mean he deserved to die, but engaging in those types of behaviors definitely increases one’s risk for injury or premature death. Unfortunately this point is completely lost on the enabling friends and family.”

It was also stated that the “sun room” was locked.

As a quick follow up on this the DA has already passed judgment using both pre-existing self-defense law and the new SYG law ~ part of the trick is that the porch had a door on it ~ doesn't matter if it was locked or unlocked ~ "entering" is the problem ~ you have to have permission.

Then, the homeowner has a wooden door between the kitchen and the enclosed porch (which is quite small). He said he doesn't have a key for the lock in that door so it's always 'unlocked' ~ which is part of the reason he got his pants scared off him!.

But, again, all he needed to do is leave it closed. You're not supposed to go in.

The initial problem ~ the girls next door ~ are still there.

As a sidelight to this very complex situation, the fellow who was shot is out on parole awaiting processing of four previous charges. The parole stipulates that he won't use alcoholic beverages. So, when he ran from the cops, in itself a crime, he was a fleeing felon, and he ended up in somebody's house ~ always a no-no.

Like the DA said, self-defense covered this one nicely. He thinks SYG does too but he didn't need to use it to arrive at his conclusion.
