EVANSVILLE A 79-year-old Evansville man shot and killed a 19-year-old who was attacking his granddaughter, Evansville Police said in a news release.
Davon Obryant Gee was pronounced dead at a home in the 500 block of South Denby Avenue on Sunday night, according to the Vanderburgh County Coroner's Office.
The name of man who shot and killed Gee has not been released by police because the man has not been charged with a crime, according to city police officials.
Police said Gee got into an argument with a 17-year-old girl at the Denby Avenue home on Sunday evening. Gee threatened to assault the girl and to use a "stun gun" on her.
She ran from the house but Gee chased her down, catching her in the yard and beating her. The girl's 79-year-old grandfather, who was in the house, came outside to help her. He told Gee to quit beating the girl.
According to witnesses, Gee then threatened to use the stun gun on the grandfather. Reaching into his pocket, he approached the 79-year-old who told him several times to stop.

Anyone else notice how all of the recent “shootings” have occurred in states that pride themselves as being safer? What a farce.
FWIW, good shooting gramps!
This man has been well counseled on how to speak to the police.
As the saying goes, old people won’t fight back, they will just shoot you. Congrats to our 79 year old patriot in arms for cleansing the gene pool.
Guess what race that is.
Found this on Google:
Not IL. Evansville is in Indiana.
Another Happy Ending. How many more can we have before 2Feb?
“If I had two sons they would look like Trayvon and Davon.”
I love a story with a happy ending....Sniff.
I can hear 0bummer now, at the mic, slobbering thru that BS spiel. He’d still need the TOTUS to get it said.
Thanks for the uplifting story from my birth city. Way to go Gramps.
According to the facebook page, his brother is recently out of prison and has a 20 month pregnant baby mama.
So he’s got that goin’ for him, which is nice.
The family that has sentencing together, stays together.
“Guess what race that is.”
Just checked his FB page! Ding, ding, ding, we have a winner! Another “Holder’s Person.” And this one has a fro like the guys in the old Black Consciousness Movies. Can you say Angela Davis? Actually all of this is a damned shame. Victim of the government schools system where I guess the law of the jungle is taught!
My old grandpa said to me ‘Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take an ass whoopin.’
Ghetto thugs/punks always travel in the best company.
“He was such a nice boy” (snicker)
Happy endings bring a tear to my eye.
“He was turning his life around... he had a new, upscale, financial district meth route, was planning on buying a home in the ‘burbs, was getting married in the spring... he was such a good boy...”
When I was young I could fight an alligator with my left hand while beating the crap out a robber....and really enjoyed it.
Now, age has come to visit me and I just have a gun handy to make sure I win the fight regardless as to the fact that it is an alligator or robber.
I’m old but now I have some old friends with me all of the time. Mr. Winchester, Mr. Remington, Mr. Rossi, Mr. Henry and Mr. Ruger, along with a few others.
They have assured me that I have nothing to fear and guarantee that they will protect me, my family and all that I have.
It’s good to have friends.
...has a 20 month pregnant baby mama.
Abnormally long gestation period there....
Next on the to-do list for gramps: Counsel your granddaughter on choosing better companions.
Unlike the opinion posters on the linked article, I don’t feel any pity at all for the dead 19 year old. He choose to attempt to inflict violence, and was met with lethal force.
I care more about the 79 year old man who made the IMHO correct choice to employ lethal force against a violent attacker.
Check out his Facebook page before it is taken down.
“Just got out of jail for being drunk wtf!!!!!!”
