From all the details we have from this story so far it’s rather apparent that this was a clear case of self-defense. In Locust Fork, Alabama an abusive boyfriend had been removed from a property by law enforcement that same day when he walked 7 miles back and came into the home.
That’s when the 14-year-old son shot the man with a 12 gauge shotgun to protect his mother. This story is more proof that not only is a restraining order a piece of paper incapable of offering protection but that even the police could not be there to protect the abused mother in this case. Fortunately, the son was taught how to operate a firearm, and he may have saved his mother’s life.
According to WIAT,
“They’re very upset,” says Brett King, defense attorney for the alleged shooter. “There was a domestic incident that morning. The deceased was actually escorted off the property and actually taken to Jefferson County. And best we know right now is he actually walked on foot back the seven miles, was back in the house when he was discovered by the mother and the son. And soon there after he was shot.”
The deceased man has now been identified as 34 year old Ayatollah Mohammad. And according to King, the trouble between Mohammed and his clients mother actually started on Tuesday.
“There is a history of domestic violence,” says King. “And it is our understanding that he aggressively attacked her the day before the shooting in Jefferson County.”
Although there is only one incident of a domestic dispute on record in Blount County at the Locust Fork home, it’s on the same day as the fatal shooting. Famed defense attorney Charles Salvagio, who is not representing the family, believes this is a clear cut case of self defense.
“It’s a classic stand your ground,” says Charles Salvagio. “The person that was killed did not have the right to be where he was. The person that shot him did have the right to be where he was. He was justified in using deadly force if he thought his mom was going to be inured.”
