Man Installing Satellite TV Shoots, Kills Wife
Patsy Long Died From Gunshot Wound To Chest

SEDALIA, Mo. -- Officials are trying to determine whether to file charges against a man who fatally shot his wife while trying to install a satellite television system in their home.
Patsy D. Long, 34, of Deep Water, was pronounced dead early Saturday evening after being shot in the chest with a .22-caliber handgun.
Pasty Long was standing outside the residence, helping her husband with the installation of a satellite television system. The couple's children were also outside.
According to sheriff's department spokesman Maj. Robert Hills, Ronald Long fired a shot from the inside of their home after several unsuccessful efforts to punch a hole through the exterior wall using other means.
Ronald Long told authorities that he fired a second shot, then called out his wife's name and the names of their two children. When he got no reply, he ran outside and found his wounded wife.
Pasty Long was hit by the second of two shots fired by Ronald Long, the Henry County Sheriff's Department said.
Hills said a person involved in such a case normally would be charged with manslaughter, but that was up to the prosecutor.
"Once we complete a diagram of the incident, we will be submitting everything to the prosecuting attorney and let him decide if he wants to press criminal charges," Hills said.
Hills described the family as being very "distraught."
Henry County Coroner Scott Largent declined to release details about Patsy Long's death until the Sheriff's Department completes its investigation.

My buddy Charlie W---- was running high speed internet cable to his computer desk at home (he'd just gotten a new computer game and wanted to play online) and couldn't get a drill into the corner to punch a hole thru the floor so he used his 45 Desert Eagle. Worked really well. But it was a single story house.

Wasn't there something like this about some guy trying to shoot the wheel of his car when the lug nuts wouldn't come loose?

Bullet Bounces Off Chef Paul Prudhomme

NEW ORLEANS -- Chef Paul Prudhomme was grazed by a bullet Tuesday, but the bullet didnít do any damage, according to Jefferson Parish deputies.
The chef was cooking at the TPC golf course in Avondale when, according to deputies, he felt something hit his arm. A .22 caliber bullet then fell from his sleeve. Prudhomme was attending The Zurich Classic, where he was preparing fish. Police said it could've been fired by a hunter in the rural area near the course.
Deputies said the bullet did not penetrate.
According to police, a .22 caliber bullet can travel up to a mile and a half, meaning it couldíve come from a very wide geographic area. Police said there is little chance of figuring out who fired the bullet that struck him.
Police originally classified the incident as a shooting, but later reclassified it as a simple complaint.
Prudhomme is credited with popularizing blackened redfish as a famed staple of cajun cuisine. In 2007, he began hosting Chef Paul Prudhomme's Always Cooking!, and authored a cookbook by the same name.
