Shooting Over Strawberries

Sounds like its a new book from Chris but it is in fact about a dispute over a box of strawberries in Loja.

It was a reasonably quiet night in a bar in Loja when an argument over a box of strawberries between a man of 40 and another of 47 started getting heated. Other customers probably expected it to end in a fight but it didn’t because the younger man left the bar in a huff… but he returned touting a 12-bore shotgun.

Standing outside the bar he fired the weapon at the victim, who was standing at the door, but missed. Neither did any of the pellets hit anybody inside.

Now, in a sensible town, everybody would have run for cover but over in the Wild West of Granada, the bar customers did the opposite and wrestled the shotgun from his hands before he could fire it again.

Somebody phoned the Guardia Civil, who might have been hiding… just saying…, and they arrested the man, who was charged with attempted murder and illegally possessing a firearm.

He should also be charged with being a lousy shot because nobody misses with a shotgun at that distance, let’s face it!
