"Man Dies After Argument About Lawnmower"

I kind of wonder whether this incident really had anything to do with a lawnmower. (Story from KSAT-12)

SAN ANTONIO -- An argument over a lawnmower on the city's south side ended fatally.

Police said Miguel Mejia, 18, was shot and killed during the argument.


Seven people walked up to a house in the 200 block of Ada Street to confront Mejia about a stolen lawnmower, police said.

"A group came over asking about the whereabouts of a lawnmower, whether it had been stolen or misappropriated. That's when a fight broke out, and somewhere in that fight, the victim got shot," San Antonio police spokesman Joe Rios said.

Why would you need six other people to get your lawnmower back? Unless, of course, you really don't.
