MS: Lawyers Puzzled over Indictment of Man who shot Teen Criminal
Members of the legal community are scratching their heads over the murder indictment of a Jackson business owner accused of shooting a teen who was allegedly breaking into a vehicle on his property.
Wayne Parish, 57, of Crystal Springs, is charged with first-degree murder in the June 21 shooting of Charles McDonald, 17, who was allegedly trying to break into a vehicle outside Performance Oil Equipment Inc.
Surveillance video shows Parish and McDonald struggling after Parish comes out of the store with a gun and confronts the teen. Court documents filed by the defense allege Parish asked McDonald to leave the premises before McDonald refused and appears to have rushed Parish.
