    No charges filed after man dies after shooting at Upstate Lowe’s

    The old 2x4 vs .44 scenario.



    No charges filed after man dies after shooting at Upstate Lowe’s
    Shooting happened Sunday afternoon


    SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Spartanburg police said an argument between two men led to a shooting outside the Lowe’s store on East Blackstock Road on Sunday afternoon.

    Monday afternoon, officers said no charges would be filed, because it was a case of self defense.

    Police said they were called to the scene around 2:45 p.m.

    Officers said the men were acquaintances and knew each other prior to the argument.

    The Spartanburg County coroner said the victim, Randall Belk, 54, of Roebuck, died a short time later at a hospital.

    Police said Belk continued to confront the man who opened fire, threatening him with a large piece of lumber, and the man shot him. He was taken for questioning but released.

    Thanks for the Heinlein quote. I've read all of his work.
    My favorite quote from him goes something like this :
    A man should know how to set a broken bone, steer a ship, prepare a meal and build a house.
    Specialization is for insects.
