McKinney said he was running down a street near E. 14th Street when he heard a shot fired and noticed he was hit in the back.

Jackson said he parked at the rear of his house where he was confronted by McKinney. He said McKinney startled him.
 
Jackson said his wife told him McKinney tried to open their front door.
 
Jackson said he then grabbed his .32 black revolver from his bedroom and exited his home. He said he yelled at McKinney to halt saying, "Stop or I'll shoot." He said McKinney replied, "Shoot."
