Rock Rapids, Ia. — A man who was shot in the head at his home in Rock Rapids has died, authorities said Wednesday.
Levi Hofer died Tuesday at a hospital in Sioux Falls, S.D.
Hofer was shot with a .22-caliber rifle on Sunday, Lyon County Sheriff Blythe Bloemendall said. His girlfriend, Laura Lowe, was charged Monday with attempted murder.
Hofer and Lowe had been drinking, and started fighting, Bloemendall said.
What kind of drinking and fighting would it have to be to end like this? These people must have qualified for the 10% theory under several categories. What do you think?
Doesn't it seem like the proportion of female criminal shooters is far less than the proportion of female gun owners? Why is that?
Is a .22 to the head usually lethal? Does it depend on how it enters? Does it differ from a pistol to a rifle?
