He Tried To Save Neighbor From Pit Bull Attack, Accidentally Kills Him With Crossbow

(Newser) – A “Good Samaritan” who accidentally killed his neighbor with a crossbow while trying to protect him from a pit bull attack will not face charges, authorities in Massachusetts say.

Police say they found the body of Joshua Jadusingh, 27, after they shot two aggressive pit bulls at a home in Adams on Wednesday, Newsweek reports. A child in the apartment was unharmed.

Investigators say that after hearing cries for help, the neighbor entered the apartment and fired the crossbow from the bottom of the stairs at the two dogs as they tried to attack Jadusingh, their owner, at the top.

The neighbor’s crossbow bolt hit one of the dogs in the scruff of the neck before going through a door and fatally injuring Jadusingh, who had barricaded himself in a room.

Berkshire County District Attorney Andrea Harrington says the neighbor went to the apartment carrying his legally owned crossbow after hearing somebody “screaming for help, saying ‘please, shoot the dogs,'” WAMC reports.

She says the neighbor is distraught. “He was actually quite good friends with his neighbor, and he knew that there was a child in the home, and it was a really, really difficult and stressful situation for him to be in and I think he did his best under the circumstances,” she says.

Harrington says the two dogs, which had a “history of aggression” and were usually kept in separate cages, were shot at the scene after they tried to attack officers.

I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.

      bigcree1, after I posted that article, I got to thinking that it may not be true. Using a crossbow to protect/save someone from a pit bull attack doesn’t ring true. A shovel or baseball bat would have done the job. Just a thought. The irony – you try to save someone and you kill the person. Thanks bigcree1 for commenting.
