Comanche fight involves gunshots

DUNCAN — A Comanche man is being held on a $500,000 bond after getting into a fight where multiple gun shots were fired in the home during the course of the melee Monday evening.

Robert Andrew Zimmerman, 42, is being charged with Shooting with Intent to Kill, a felony which is punishable by imprisonment for up to life, according to paperwork filed in Stephens County District Court.

In the affidavit filed for Zimmerman’s arrest, the encounter took place in the 100 block of Walnut Ave. around 8:13 p.m. on Monday.

Zimmerman and Brenda Kincannon had been arguing earlier in the day at the home and once her son Gerald Zupper Jr. arrived on scene around 8:10 p.m., Zupper approached Zimmerman in the bedroom and asked him to come out of the house and talk.

Zimmerman refused and told Zupper to leave the house.

Zupper then yelled at Zimmerman and during the course of the argument, Zimmerman pulled a handgun from his back. Zupper then shoved Zimmerman onto the bed while the gun was drawn.

Zimmerman got up and the fight proceeded into the hallway of the home, where Zupper shoved Zimmerman’s gun hand into the air and a shot was fired into the ceiling.

The affidavit states Zupper fought Zimmerman to the floor of the hallway, where another shot was fired into the ceiling of the living room.

A third shot was fired into the spare bedroom as Zupper slid Zimmerman closer to a bed.

Zupper’s girlfriend was standing in the spare bedroom at the time the third shot was fired. She was visiting after Zupper called her and asked her to check on Kincannon (his mother).

According to the affidavit, Comanche Officer Justin Harkins arrived on scene at 8:13 p.m., where after talking to the witnesses, used the patrol vehicle’s PA system to tell Zimmerman to exit the house with his hands in the air with no weapons.

Zimmerman was handcuffed and placed into a patrol car after telling Harkins the guns were on his dresser in the bedroom.

A Springfield Armory 1911 -A1 .45 caliber handgun was found next to three live rounds. A magazine clip was found with two live rounds in a magazine on a television.

Harkins found a spent shell case in the hallway and was given two spent shell casings from Kincannon.

Zimmerman remains in Stephens County Jail with his preliminary hearing set for 2 p.m. Nov. 7.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
