Man shot at Ohio VA hospital thought gun was toy
Question of the Day
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - An employee shot in the ankle at a Veterans Affairs hospital in Ohio says he initially thought the retired co-worker charged in the shooting had a toy gun and came there to play cards.
But shooting victim Paul Burnside, 61, of Dayton, said suspect Neil Moore then said that: “I don’t want you all messing with my family,” the Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1jjZ5oR) reported.
“When the first shot went off, that’s when I knew it wasn’t a toy gun,” Burnside said. He said an employee held one of Moore’s arms and Burnside grabbed the other arm, with a second shot striking Burnside.
Burnside couldn’t be reached for comment Thursday. His telephone listings are disconnected.
Moore, 59, of Trotwood, was a former hospital housekeeping aide. He is charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and use of a deadly weapon during commission of a crime of violence. His attorney didn’t return calls.
