Reality Show Shooter Claims Self-Defense
(Las Vegas, NV) — An attorney for a former Las Vegas schoolteacher accused of shooting at a reality television production crew is claiming self-defense.
Carlos Enrique Barron is charged with attempted murder and six other counts in the April 2011 incident involving a crew from the Spike TV series “Repo Games.”
Lawyer Richard Tannery told jurors Monday Barron thought the crew was going to repossess his vehicle.
Barron allegedly fired several shots in the air. No one was hurt, but one bullet struck a van.
He faces up to 67 years in prison. The trial is expected to wrap up this week.
