Step father had to shoot his punk step son in an act of self-defense (Alabama)

Not a proud moment for any parent but what do you do when your own step son threatens you with death. Barry Garrett, 62 had to make that decision when 26-year-old Thomas Kingsley punched him in the back of the head and then grabbed a pair of scissors and threatened to kill his stepfather.

“Mr. Garrett then armed himself with a pistol and warned Kingsley that he would shoot him,” the article says “Kingsley then lunged at Mr. Garrett causing him to shoot.”

He was hit in the upper abdomen but they believe he’s going to make it, He’s stable right now.” (Too bad)

Kingsley has a long arrest record including 2 counts domestic violence and the police have been to the house a couple of times for alcohol related incidents
