AZBD Note: First details of the incident we have been able to find. Sounds like self defense:
“According to the filing, Kelly’s attorney says that he “saw a group of men moving through the trees around his home” who were “armed with AK-47 rifles, dressed in khakis and camouflaged clothing, and carrying large backpacks.”
The “leader” of the alleged armed group saw Kelly and “pointed an AK-47 right at him,” the filing states.
“Mr. Kelly, fearing for his life and safety, fired several shots from his rifle, hoping to scare them away from him, his wife, his animals, and his home. As he shot, Mr. Kelly took care to aim well over the heads of the armed group of men,” according to Kelly’s attorney.”
