(CA)Rock-salt shooter acted in self-defense

While Jimmy Terry fights for his life at a hospital in Modesto, his uncle Robert will not be charged with felony assault, as the District Attorney’s Office deemed he acted in self-defense when he shot his nephew in the stomach from 15 feet away Sunday.

Sheriff’s investigators are aware Jimmy Blake Terry, 25, suffered significant injuries and is expected to have an extended stay in the hospital, Calaveras County sheriff’s Sgt. Chris Hewitt said, adding the hospital has not released any further information.

According to sheriff’s reports, Terry, who is wanted for parole violations, confronted his uncle Robert at a home on the 1800 block of Rawhide Road in Arnold Sunday morning and the two started arguing about Terry’s suspicion his uncle was “ratting him out” for crimes committed in the area.
