The gist of the story takes one sentence to tell:
A man whose wife had recently died was only a few feet away from his own tombstone in a family burial plot when he pointed a loaded gun at a deputy and was fatally shot, authorities said Thursday.And the man was helpful in two ways:
- No need to
godrive too far for his burial
- And (I know you will hate me for this, but I can't restrain myself) he solved the issue of his tombstone epitaph. Surely it will be: "I didn't shoot the deputy".
