Default Georgia man shot and killed a motorcyclist


A Georgia man was arrested for murder after he allegedly shot and killed a motorcyclist who he said was following his teenage daughters home from a Target store, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Richard Harold Gear's two daughters, ages 17 and 19, called their 45-year-old father from their cell phones to tell him they were being followed, the paper reported.

When they got home their father was at the end of their driveway with a pistol, police told the newspaper.

Gear allegedly shot his .40-caliber semiautomatic gun two or three times at Bryan Joseph Mough, 21, after he drove past the house, turned around and made another pass, the Journal-Constitution reported.

The teens said they made obscene gestures at Mough after he cut them off, adding at one point he ran into their car, the newspaper reported.

Police told the newspaper there is evidence of a collision between the vehicle and the motorcycle, but they haven't been to determine who initiated it.

Sounds to me like there may be more to this story.

Gear shot Mough in the back (google for more stories specifying he was hit in the back) after Mough had ridden past the house. That doesn't sound like an imminent physical threat to me.

I'm all for the good guys ventilating the bad guys, but this doesn't smell right at all.
