Detectives went to Lot 19 and learned that this all stemmed from a domestic dispute. A verbal altercation took place between Angela K. Mullins, who is the mother of Drake Boggs. During the altercation Drake Boggs held a firearm to her head. Drake Bogg’s step father Barry J. Mullins, arrived home for lunch and got involved, that is when Drake Boggs fired the gun at him twice, missing him both times. Detectives believe alcohol played a factor in the incident.
