Attorney Shot In Couple’s Home After Bizarre Rampage

posted on July 15, 2016

A Chattanooga, Ga., attorney broke into an elderly couple’s house, threatened them, left, returned, climbed the roof, then threw plants at them. It took two bullets in his arm to end the strange incident.

Georgia police said Matthew Fitzharris, 29, walked into the couple’s residence uninvited and carrying a blanket. When the homeowners asked him to leave, Fitzharris screamed obscenities and refused to go. The wife asked again, adding, “My husband was a Marine, and he will shoot you.” 

Fitzharris left, but returned quickly and ran up the back stairs of the house. After banging on doors, hurling plants and climbing the roof, he bolted down the stairs again. When he charged the homeowner, he received two bullets in his right arm. Fiztharris was taken to a local hospital, then to jail. His attorney told the Times Free Press, “I do think that a suspected psychological problem may be at play.”
