Patty Jones says she started record­ing cell­phone video when the man stormed out of his pickup truck and ac­costed an­other neigh­bour last week, be­liev­ing the man didn’t be­long there. Her video shows the first man firing over the other man’s head. John Hub­bard faces state and fed­eral charges.
