[TN] Hawkins man fatally shot during argument over best method to grow marijuana

Hawkins man fatally shot during argument over best method to grow marijuana
February 26, 2011 - timesnews.net

SURGOINSVILLE — Hawkins County investigators say an alcohol-fueled argument over marijuana growing techniques preceded a shooting early Friday morning that left one man dead and another charged with second-degree murder.

About 2:45 a.m. Friday, deputies were called to a shooting complaint at the residence of Gary Wayne Parker, 55, 2256 Carters Valley Road, Surgoinsville.

Upon their arrival, deputies found Randy J. Armstrong, 53, 1715 Carters Valley Road, Surgoinsville, on the floor with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Armstrong was transported to Holston Valley Medical Center in Kingsport, where he later died.

Hawkins County Sheriff Ronnie Lawson said it was Parker’s wife who called 911 to report the shooting, and a .380-caliber handgun was recovered at the Parker residence.

Investigators learned that Parker and Armstrong were old friends, and that Armstrong stopped by the Parker residence sometime the previous night.

The two reportedly hadn’t seen each other for three or four years and began drinking Thursday night. Beer and liquor, as well as a small amount of marijuana, were allegedly found at the Parker residence.

At some point during their reunion, Parker and Armstrong began looking up marijuana growing techniques on the Internet, and subsequently the two began to argue about that subject, Lawson said.

Lawson said he doesn’t know specifically what the disagreement was about.

Parker allegedly told investigators he told Armstrong to leave, and when Armstrong refused to leave he shot him. Lawson added that Parker is claiming self-defense.

Parker was home when deputies arrived, and Lawson said he wasn’t injured at that time. Lawson said evidence at the scene didn’t back Parker’s self-defense claim.

Parker does, however, appear injured and bloody from his jail intake photo. Parker was initially held for questioning, but Lawson said he was too intoxicated to give a statement.

Lawson said Parker was alone in a holding area when he fell and injured himself.

“He didn’t get injured from a fight,” Lawson said. “He was intoxicated, and he fell face forward into the concrete at the jail.”

Parker was taken to Hawkins County Memorial Hospital, where he received stitches, and wasn’t able to give a statement until Friday afternoon.

Parker is charged with second degree murder and as of Friday afternoon was being held without bond.

Parker has 10 previous arrests in Hawkins County dating back to 1999 on charges including DUI, public intoxication and failure to appear, but Lawson said this was his first serious felony charge.

No arraignment date had been set as of Friday afternoon, but Lawson said his arraignment will likely be Monday morning in sessions court.

Now if the situation was reversed and these two were high on cannabis while discussing methods of alcohol distillation this death, most likely, would not have happened.

Man this is just ridiculous.  The first thing I did when I read this was to laugh, like a mild bellow.

Here I am sitting, enjoying my life, high while another man is dead arguing about something that doesn't matter at all.  On top of that he had what I'd imagine is a sufficient personal stash of cannabis, given that he was a grower either at the time of his death or sometime in the past.

Why waste your life on something so foolish.  I try my best anymore to just separate myself from any uncomfortable situations, especially ones involving loud talking, arguing, or potential violence.  If someone corners you it's important to be able to defend yourself, but defusing a situation by walking away, or if necessary running away from it is preferable to getting into a violent altercation over something that didn't mean jack shit to either of you.

What a waste.



Also: that motherfucker in the mugshot has the victim's blood (my assumption) all over his face and upper torso.

Fucking nuts man.

I dont think thats the victims blood, could be wrong but he's wearing a light blue shirt that has the blood on it and i would say thats probably a jail suit and therefore put on after he was arrested and away from the victim. 

p.s.  If your a drunk with multiple arrests, but more importantly if you tend to do EXTREME things at times when drinking, or get violent, do not have a gun.  Im not preaching about morals but if there was no gun this guy wouldn't have picked it up in a fit of drunken rage.  Protect yourself, lose the gun.

it says in the article that he fell on his face in the jail cell and that is where the wound, and probably blood, is from

Funny story
Jesus I've seen arguments like this go down at 4 am between drunk friends

I don't hang out with anybody that looks like that guy though

I wouldn't argue with any drunk asshole about the best way to grow pot. Whatever you say, guy, you know better than I, now pass the bong.

Btw, he reminds me a lot of Chibbs from Sons of Anarchy.  Minus the scar, his beard is a bit longer and he's more authentic biker-looking.

Organic hydro? That's an oxymoron if you ask me.
