Mr. Metzger was a former marine, very knowledgeable with gun safety. Obviously the individual that shot him at close range wasn't! How do you hold a shot gun in your hands and take every precaution not to point it in the direction of any human being? Most people know this, even children know this and yet this individual didn't and proceeded to pull the trigger too? Such an irresponsible negligent thing to do.
