Nightclub Shooting Over a Hat...or a Woman


A shooting outside of a Springfield, Missouri nightclub that left one man wounded was reportedly caused by a disturbance over either a stolen hat or a woman, depending upon who is telling the story as witnesses statements conflict.

Johnathon L. Kates, 21, of Ozark, MO has been charged with first-degree assault and armed criminal action for allegedly shooting at two men with an AR-15 assault rifle. Kates has pleaded innocent to the charges during his arraignment.

One of the victims was shot while trying to disarm Kates after he retrieved the weapon out of his truck following a fight. The victim was wounded during the scuffle but disarmed the suspect, struck him with his own rifle and kicked him in the head.

Well summarized, I must say. Welcome to Shortnews. Tip: cut down the length of the sentences. The 1st paragraph is almost 40 words long. It's a bit hard to read w/o glasses (dunno where I put them). :) Keep up the good work.

  From my vast  
experience in the past, hats and women are the number one causes of fights in nightclubs. Most places used to ban hats for this reason. They couldn't ban women. No one would show up.

LOL that's cold. Missouri, where everyone carries an AK in their truck.

which is also the postal code for Alaska. I had this mental image of Palin with an AK-47...... OH, well. Too much politics.
