He began ranting about an incident from two months prior and stated he was angry. He then asked Venson, “Do you want to come to get the gun out of my hands?” Venson replied “no” to the question, and Keith continued, “Because I would blow your head off.” Venson told him that he didn’t want to die today, prompting Keith to turn and fire another shot into the ground with the shotgun.
