On Tuesday, Cleveland news station WEWS reported that 60-year-old Paul Jones, Jr., was shot for supporting GOP nominee Donald Trump. Jones, a black man who served in the Air Force during the Vietnam War, was discussing the election with a friend when someone apparently didn’t like what he said and shot him in the thigh.
According to WEWS:
“He butted in the conversation,” Jones said, speaking from his hospital bed. “The conversation wasn’t directed at him or to him.”
It escalated from there in a way no one ever imagined.
The man got so upset, he went out to his car — and came back with a gun.
Cleveland police said he shot Jones in the thigh, then walked out — effectively ending the debate.
