A psycho Pennsylvania man shot and killed his neighbor, a GOP committeeman, with two bullets to the head on Monday night as his wife watched.
Clayton Carter was a ticking time bomb. He littered his lawn with anti-trump signs and often argued with his neighbors. One sign read, “Trump for the greedy, death and despair for the needy.”
He took it upon himself to murder his neighbor, G. Brooks Jennings, as Jennings’ wife saw the scene unfold. She literally saw Clayton shoot her husband in the head, twice.
Police have charged Clayton Carter, 51, in the shooting death of G. Brooks Jennings.
Shortly before 8 p.m. Monday, police responded to the 300 block of Box Elder Drive for a dispute between Carter and Jennings about cursing and video recording in the back yard. Police said they were able to resolve that dispute.
Then at approximately 1 a.m. Tuesday, police say the neighbors got into another dispute. Carter told police that Jennings shined a light into his eyes while he was outside. Carter then allegedly pulled a car onto his lawn, shining the high beams of the car on Jennings’ property.
Carter then allegedly retrieved a .380 semi-automatic handgun from his house and confronted the victim again outside.
Officials say Carter shot Jennings once in the head, knocking him to the ground. Carter then allegedly stood over Jennings’ body and shot him once more in the head.
The victim was on his own property, police said…
Police recovered two shell casings, the gun and a knife at the scene. One shell casing was located on Carter’s property. The second shell casing was found on the victim’s property, near Jennings’ body.
Carter has been charged with murder and related offenses, and is currently being held at the Chester County Prison.
Neighbor Brian Dougherty emotionally said, “You don’t want to sound cliche, you see this on TV all the time, but he is probably the nicest, best guy I’ve ever met in my whole life. Really, seriously.”
