Lobster seller gets shot shrift
A MAN shot dead a salesman who tried to sell him some LOBSTERS.
The victim, Nicholas Rainey, 30, was trying to flog frozen seafood when he knocked on the door of 52-year-old Kenneth Bailey Roop (
But instead of simply saying no thanks, he went mental and blasted him with a 9mm Glock.
Roop claimed that he was only protecting himself from a trespasser, but he now faces murder charges.
Neighbour Gene Snyder heard the gunshots and went to help the victim, who was on the ground in front of the home in Cape Coral, Florida.
Snyder says he heard someone in the garage say that he would “kill everybody or shoot everybody.”
Police said: “This is an extreme reaction to a door to door salesman.”
