Alert Neighbors Shoot Man Who Was Beating 86-Year-Old With Metal Pipe

BARTOW COUNTY, GEORGIA — In an attack with no known motive, a father and son came to the aid of a neighbor after hearing his wife screaming for help.

86-year-old Calvin Lee was being beaten by a man, who neighbors say lives in the area, with a metal pipe.

“He pulled him out of his house and started beating him,” a neighbor told reporters.

A father and son, who heard the cries for help and didn’t know the person being attacked, knew they had to do something. One of them grabbed a gun, and they both went over to try and stop the attack.

Those neighbors say the attacker turned on them. He punched one in the jaw and tried to take the gun away from the other. That’s when they fired two shots, hitting the attacker.
