A Redding man shot his granddaughter’s boyfriend in self defense, according to police. The shooting was reported at 4:44PM Sunday afternoon at a home on Woodburry Drive in East Redding. 29-year-old Joshua Horak and his girlfriend had come from their home in Tacoma, Washington for the weekend to visit the girlfriend’s grandparents. Only Horak’s name will be publicly revealed. As the weekend progressed, Horak reportedly became more and more verbally and physically aggressive toward the couple in their 70s, causing them to feel threatened in their own home. It came to a head on Sunday when the grandfather told Horak he was no longer welcome and he would have to leave. Horak apparently answered with an angry barrage of insults and threats. Seeing the situation escalating, the grandfather armed himself with a handgun. The threats continued until Horak allegedly charged at the older man, and he was stopped by a bullet. Horak fell to the floor but then got back on his feet and charged again, according to the grandfather, who shot Horak a second time. 9-1-1 was called and Horak was transported to Mercy Medical Center, where he was in stable condition, at last word, with non-life-threatening wounds. Nobody was arrested. The case will be reviewed by the district attorney’s office.
