CHL carrier shoots attacker at Wallgreens

Tyler Texas.

Looks like a good shoot as the 65 year old man was questioned and released. The other guy was a transit who went berserk at a IHOP not far away.

It's interesting that this involved a young, unarmed man aggressively going after an older, armed man who fired the fatal shot. I don't know the particulars but it seems that Caldwell may have been on drugs given his erratic actions. One shot seemed to stop him.

The dead aggressor definitely sounds like he was under the influence of some sort of chemical "mood changer."

Or he was just an aggressive thug who thought he could get away with it. It will be interesting to see the autopsy results.

I'm thinking meth.

And if shot in the right place, even someone hopped up on drugs can be DRT.
