A father shot and killed his daughter’s boyfriend after the boyfriend shot his daughter in the back. The incident happened this past Sunday night on June 4. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution published a story about the incident.
Sheriff’s Lt. Scott Ware says that the shooting took place at a residence in the 3400 block of Jet Wright Rd. in Hall County. Police responded to a 911 call at around 4:30 a.m. this past Sunday morning.
Upon arriving to the house, police found the victim, Jessica Rusk, shot in the back. Rusk had gotten into an argument with her 25-year-old boyfriend, Thomas McNulty. McNulty shot Rusk while Rusk was walking away from him.
Shortly afterwards, Rusk’s father, Floyd Rusk, shot and killed McNulty.
Channel 2 Action News interviewed McNulty’s former employer, Scott Carothers. Carothers says that he had to fire McNulty only a week after hiring him as an IT contractor because McNulty had broken company rules by bringing a firearm into the office.
Carothers told Channel 2 News that McNulty had said, “He had forgot it was in his back pocket.”
A neighbor, Sabrena Kapetanis, told Channel 2 that she couldn’t blame Floyd Rusk for protecting his daughter.
“That’s going to haunt him. I’ve been praying for him. I know it’s hard on him and my heart goes out to him,” Kapetanis told the news station.
Lt. Ware said that no charges have been filed.
As a Brit living and working in the USA, her views on gun ownership and the second amendment have evolved over the years, allowing her to fully understand both sides of the gun control debate and she regularly speaks on the matter to help others understand why she feels the second amendment must be protected and why she chooses to be an advocate for the shooting sports.
