Young v. Warren
Citation:383 S.E.2d 381 (N.C. App. 1989)
One day in 1986, a man named Lewis Reid Young, visited the defendant’s daughter’s house uninvited. Young was the defendant’s daughter’s on-and-off boyfriend. When Young approached the house, he threw a large piece of wood through the glass in the front door and then entered the home by reaching through the broken window and unlocking the door. Once inside the house, young argued with the defendant’s daughter and “jerked” her arm. The defendant later got a call from his ex-wife, who told him that something was going on at his daughter’s house. The defendant arrived at the residence with a loaded shotgun. The defendant then entered the house and ordered Young to leave. Young appeared to be complying as the defendant led him out of the house. At this point in time, the defendant had his gun to Young’s back. When the defendant attempted to prod Young in the back, the gun accidentally went off.
