And Now, The Rest Of The
"Law-Abiding Gun Owner" Story ...

Police arrested a man Thursday morning in connection with an apparent road rage shooting that killed a mother last week.

According to investigators, 44-year-old Tammy Meyers was teaching her 15-year-old daughter how to drive in the parking lot of a school near their house Feb. 12. As the pair was headed home, with Meyers behind the wheel, they encountered an irate driver, who forced their vehicle to stop and then jumped out and shouted at them.

Police said Meyers sped away and went home. She then told her 22-year-old son to grab his gun and come with her to find the angry driver. The pair eventually found the car believed to be involved, but later lost it. When Meyers arrived back to her home, a gray- or silver-colored car pulled down the street and someone inside fired several shots at Meyers and her son, who were exiting their vehicle. Meyers' son returned fire.

Meyers was shot in the head, and left critically injured. She died at an area hospital two days later.

On Thursday morning, police said they surrounded a home near Alta Drive and Cimmaron Road in western Las Vegas and arrested a 20-year-old man in connection with the shooting. His identity was not immediately released.

The home where the arrest happened is about a block north of Meyers' home.

This is the "polite" part in that famous stupid quote, right?

Amazing how one additional detail can completely change one's perception of an event.
