New York’s PIX11 / WPIX-TV – Marcus Gottsche, 34, returned to his Buffalo home after a night of drinking in February 2011, the Erie County DA said. He started fighting with his friend Jasmine Armour, 28, after he spotted her eating his leftover sandwich in the kitchen.
The fight escalated into a standoff with knives, according to court documents. A BB gun was in the kitchen, but Gottsche went upstairs to get a rifle – one of four guns in the house – from his bedroom. Gottsche fired a single shot into the ground from the staircase.
