Followup IN: Civil Lawsuits Follow Homeowner and Burglar Convictions
Nearly three years after a Dunkirk homeowner opened fire on an intruder fleeing from his property, the reverberations of those gunshots are still being felt.
Both the homeowner — David McLaughlin, now 34 — and the burglar — David A. Bailey, 32 — were prosecuted over the pre-dawn events of April 21, 2014.
Last April, just before the second anniversary of his shooting, Bailey filed a Jay Circuit Court lawsuit against McLaughlin for shooting him.
