tony pierce shot in centerville

dude who shot tony pierce, allegedlytheres a town called Centerville. it’s in Utah.

sunday a dude shot a man named Tony Pierce, who was his neighbor.

it wasnt me. i was watching football and reading the bible. also im not 41.

The 41-year-old victim, identified by neighbors as Tony Pierce, was hit once in the leg and once in the back, police said. A helicopter flew him to University Hospital, where police said he was undergoing surgery to repair life-threatening injuries in his chest cavity. As of Monday morning, he was recovering after having his spleen and the bullet removed, according to the Centerville Police Department.

people always aim for the spleen.

i’ll never understand that.

Police arrested a 53-year-old Mike Selleneit and planned to book him into the Davis County jail on suspicion of attempted homicide. His wife was also taken into custody.

his wife too? were they joined at the hip? was she spotting for him?

The shooting happened about 5 p.m. at a trailer park at 555 N. 400 West.

ok that explains it. good thing there werent any kids around.

The victim’s 8-year-old daughter was in the trailer during the shooting but was not harmed, police said.

dude shot at a neighbor who had a kid in the house? what sick frick would do that?

Centerville officer Rolynn Snow said police found a .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun in Selleneit’s trailer apparently used in the shooting.

In 1991, Selleneit pleaded guilty but mentally ill to a felony count of attempted sexual abuse of a child. Snow said Selleneit was cooperating and accurately answering questions for detectives. The 1991 conviction prohibits Selleneit from possessing a gun.

so was my namesake cray cray too?

Cathy Greaves lives in the same trailer park but did not hear the shooting. She called Pierce “a real nice guy” who did not cause trouble.

in the follow up story today, the word is that tony pierce is fighting for his life.

and the shooter is saying pierce used his ESP to threaten he and his wife.

According to a probable cause statement filed with the Davis County jail, Selleneit told detectives he shot Pierce in self-defense with intent to kill him. Selleneit claimed Pierce had been “telepathically threatening” to kill Selleneit and his wife.

“Selleneit also claimed that Pierce had telepathically raped his wife on many occasions,” police wrote in the statement.

i cant wait for the televised court proceedings.

get well tony pierce of utah!

today is the xbi boss’s birthday

boss's daughter

there isnt much known about the boss other than he

a) has a daughter
b) may have more offspring
c) is happily married
d) is from chile
e) lived for quite a while in canada
f) has spent good amount of time in the usa
g) enjoys baseball
h) babies love him
i) errryone loves him
j) doesn’t speak much

apparently the plan was to get me to re-join the xbi – again – but i went the exact other way and signed on with public radio this fall, as many of you know.

some people call that the closest thing to socialism in the USA next to working at a post office.

so the boss’s daughter decided she would try to woo me into joining her daddy’s undercover superhero group herself. but something happened and the canadian xbi, the cix, caused problems for us at the border.

never one to put his daughter in danger, the boss allowed her to visit me in Hollywood, but quickly removed her from my premises soon after my birthday and now she is back in canada, where i assume he is too.

ive never met the boss, only spoken to him via Skype, but the way the xbi works, it was entirely a hoax for all i know. either way the gentleman on the other side of the screen was everything i expected: soft spoken, suave, and eerily polite.

odds are he was reading my mind. sadly for him, the pages in my head are mostly blank or scribbled over.

legend has it that the boss was quite a rebel back in the day, and nowadays he handles his business in a much more subtle way. nearly zen like, stealthy.

like the King Ad Rock, the boss’s birthday is Oct 31, which is today.

we, past present and future xbi agents are all extremely happy that Lucho was born today. the world is better, safer, and funkier thanks to his presence.
