A man reported in court documents that he acted in self-defense when he pulled the trigger during an altercation earlier this week near Interstate 83 in Shrewsbury Township.
In a petition for an emergency protection-from-abuse order, the man wrote that James Lynch Sr., 57, of Shrewsbury Township, attacked him at 11:30 a.m. on Monday. He said he was in his vehicle with his son.
Next, the man reported, Lynch “went for a firearm on his person.”
“I defended myself using my firearm killing Jim Lynch,” the man said. “I was held and released by the State Police with no charges.”
