A 15-year-old was killed when his 16-year-old friend tried to shoot a mouse.
Garvin Gillham argued loudly with his ex-wife at her place of employment. Her employer, a farmer, called police before threatening the Gillham with a pitchfork. Gillham shot the farmer 7 times, killing him, before shooting Mrs. Gillham twice in the thigh and abdomen. A responding police officer arrived and Mrs. Gillham was able to seek shelter in his patrol car. Gillham and the officer exchanged shots, both sustaining injuries. Gilliam was wounded in the arm and chest and was taken for treatment to the hospital along with his ex-wife.
