Bounty Hunter Kills Country Singer Randy Howard In Tennessee Gunfight

Posted: June 12, 2015 in Culture

On Tuesday night bounty hunter Jackie Shell tried to bring in a country music singer Randy Howard at the singer’s home, but instead shot and killed
howard in a gunfight.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said it was looking into the circumstances of Tuesday night’s shooting of 65-year-old Randy Howard, agency spokesman Josh DeVine said in an email.

Howard was a member of country music’s “Outlaw” movement, which rejected Nashville’s polished music in favour of a rougher sound. He had shared the stage with Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams Jr.

Howard had missed a court appearance, DeVine said, after being charged with his fourth drink-driving offence, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a firearm while intoxicated and driving on a revoked license.

Howard’s friend, Terry Dotson, told Nashville TV station WSMV that he had tried to drive Howard to his court appearance but the singer brushed him off.

“He said he wasn’t going back to jail. That’s what he told me,” Dotson said.
