    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!
