From reading the article and looking at the news coverage of the quck surveialnce footage. it does seem that maybe Gardner was defending himself..
For those that dont know the backstory ( And I dont know alot of the back story myself I just saw this today.) aparently at the end of may when the
riots and looting was happening and all hell was breaking lose. Gardner shot at a protestor and killed 22 year old scurlock. There is a a video
from a couple months ago where the county attorney said it was self defense
But apparently the county changed their minds and were going to bring charges against Gardner. Who has now taken his own life. I dont know if it was
because he was now facing charges or because of the death threats I think he said he was recieving.
For both of the individuals a loss of life has happened that was a chain reaction to other events and its very sad.
