Florida Self-Defense Shooting-Walmart Parking Lot Assault :: 07/30/2014
Citing the "stand your ground" law, the State Attorney's Office on Wednesday said it will not file charges against the man who shot and killed another man July 9 in a Silver Springs Shores parking lot.
Authorities say Colt D. Thriemer, 20, of Weirsdale, shot and killed Thomas James "TJ" Brown, 21, of Silver Springs Shores, during an argument in the Wal-Mart parking lot off Maricamp Road.
Assistant State Attorney Amy Berndt noted in an eight-page report that Brown had been threatening to kill Thriemer and his family for months. Thriemer had told his parents, brother, girlfriend and friends about the threats. Those people were interviewed and backed up Thriemer's statement.
Berndt stated that most people, including Thriemer, knew that Brown had access to several firearms and carried a gun. She cited two previous police reports that mentioned Brown firing a weapon.
