Kelso man says he's victim of vigilante shooting

9-25-2007 Washington:

KELSO, Wash. (AP) - A Kelso man accused of making obscene phone calls to children says he was attacked by someone he thinks found his home because of TV coverage.

Barry North says he was hit on the head and shot in the calf Saturday night when he went to get his mail. He says he passed out from the pain and spent the night in his driveway.

A Cowlitz County sheriff's deputy, Charlie Rosenzweig, says North was shot at close range with a small-caliber gun, but he didn't report it until Sunday afternoon. North says he was afraid he would be shot again, but the pain forced him to call 911.

The 43-year-old appeared in court last week in Kitsap County on a charge of communicating with a minor for immoral purposes.

North says he is innocent and that the calls were made by someone who stole his cell phone. ..more.. by AP
