Shoot Me Free

By, Cheri Roberts-Piper MTR News

On Monday KCAL – a CA news station, and a local High Desert newspaper – the Victor Valley Daily Press reported Apple Valley Deputies had responded late Sunday evening to a call of a shooting victim who had entered an Apple Valley, CA AM/PM mini mart on Rancherias RD seeking help. Deputies arrived for what had been reported as an alleged robbery that took place while the victim walked along the Apple Valley Golf Curse on his way to the convenience store.

As Deputies questioned the victim and examined footprint evidence left behind it became apparent there was more to the story then Myers was telling and thought Myers was covering for an accidental shooting.

As Deputies unraveled the case they discovered Ft Campbell KY Soldier Matthew John Myers was home in CA on emergency leave from his deployment in Iraq and had decided he did not want to return to the war. Myers conspired with friend Daniel Dotterrer who shot him in the front right thigh before fleeing the scene and Myers continuing on to report the supposed crime from the mini mart.

    When are they going to allow the Soldier to make some statements about why he did this and why he does not want to return to Iraq? One would think THAT is the bigger story here…
