Argument over peach cobbler at Mississippi truck stop leaves man with gunshot wound

The incident left one man recovering from a gunshot wound and another man behind bars facing attempted murder charges.

Witnesses say they watched as Stanley Woodson went off on workers about his dessert. The victim stepped in and ended up taking a bullet in the back.

Logan Novascone says he made his usual stop in Joe Joe's Travel Center to pick up a Coke on Wednesday.

"He started cursing her out, so I put my Coke on the counter. I was like, 'Dude, you aren't going to talk to them like that," he told WREG.

He says the customer in front of him in the checkout line, later identified as Stanley Woodson, was mad about the number of peaches that were served with his cobbler and was going off on the woman serving him.

"Everyone that comes to this store knows these women. That is disrespectful."

Stanley Woodson

Novascone says he stepped in to defend the cashier, but he thought things would stop there.

"I was like, all he is going to do is argue. He isn't going to do anything, you know?"

Whether Woodson was just having a bad day or truly that frazzled over fruit, Novascone says he wasn't expecting to take a ride to the hospital.

"Over some peaches? You want to shoot me over some peaches?"

He says Woodson popped his trunk at gas pump 5, pulled a gun out the back and started shooting.

"Pow, pow! He reached over the car and shot again. The only thing I could think of was that dumpster."

According to Novascone, seven shots were fired as he ran to take cover.

"I thought, really, I was dead. I was done."

He thinks all the gunplay wasn't necessary.

"Put up the guns. Let's go with these hands if you want to go."

He says it if happened again, he'd still stand up for the women working at the store.

"I would do it again, 100 percent."

The stupidity of Conservatives, the inability to recognize facts and attempt to destroy democracy.

this has nothing to do with gun culture.   this is an example of idiots, people that believe they are above rules, politeness etc.  Sure a gun was used, however there has been fights, knives etc. over just as stupid reasons.  We need to look at culture.   How many videos have there been blaming police when someone didn't follow rules?  I has been rampant at Waffle houses where police were called, then they become the bad person for doing their job.  

It is people not guns that are the problem.

Can you give me one example of me being 'gun control crazy'? As a matter of fact, I've never made a post advocating 'gun control' of any kind. I don't see a need for civilians to own versions of military weapons, that's about as far as I go on 'gun control', but whatever you need to tell yourself to make it through the day is fine by me.
