Meat Puppets’ bassist Chris Kirkwood was gut-shot by a Post Office security guard on December 26 after a dispute over a parking space.
The guard “took out the baton and held it out in front of him and said, ‘You need to leave,’ ” Killigrew said. “The guy took the baton from him and struck him at least one time in the forehead at which time the guard felt fear for his life. He said, ‘I thought the guy was going to kill me.’ He already displayed that he would hurt him, and the guard shot him one time in the abdomen.”
Kirkwood fled the scene with Harvey Keitel, sprawled in the backseat of a commandeered towncar.
