I’m scratching too.
My take is nothing good happens after midnight!
Appears to be a clear case of self-defense.
OH BUT THEY ARE SUCH GOOD KIDS,
PS: where the hell are they getting the amo.
Black Market, Blacky.
Can he use mutual combat as a defense?
Mutual combat is not a defense for anything. It is a condition that prevents you from claiming self defense. If the prosecutor says mutual combat and the jury agrees, then you have lost the required state of innocence to support a self defense claim.
Other question is what cartridge has a “casing”? Were they packing sausages?
Police found a total of 10 shell casings, as well as a gun, during their investigation.
Maybe the fight was over one of them touching the other’s meat…

If there’s a self defense claim, and that’s not my point.
My reply was giving the reason that no, he cannot use mutual combat as a defense. So, what was your point?
It seems like a clear cut case of self-defense more details needed. The guy being charged is not the aggressor and as per witnesses the saw him being attacked and being hit in the head with the gun. I believe when all is said and done and the facts are out he will be released.
It appears the 3 involved men arrived armed, illegally so (underage for handgun possession). I don’t believe self-defense claim can pass against that. A case of gang culture I am afraid.
