MANSFIELD, La. (AP) - DeSoto Parish sheriff's deputies say a man
who refused to prosecute his father-in-law for a shooting five
years ago has allegedly been shot by him again.
Cpl. Dusty Herring said 74-year-old Alvis McKinney was booked
Wednesday with third-offense DWI as well as aggravated battery
against 39-year-old Alvin Gentry.
Gentry is in LSU Hospital in Shreveport with a
non-life-threatening bullet wound in his back.
Herring says McKinney told investigators that he did not realize
he had shot Gentry until the younger man went down. He says Gentry
and his wife were arguing outside their home, and McKinney told
Gentry to leave, firing a warning round from his .22-caliber pistol
- and fired a second shot after further argument among all three.
