Strange twist in McIver shooting case

An Atlanta attorney who says he accidentally shot and killed his wife last month was charged some 25 years ago with firing a gun at a car containing three teens in DeKalb County.

A grand jury indicted Claud “Tex” McIver but prosecutors declined to pursue the 1990 case after the parties settled it privately, according to court records obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. No one was injured in the incident. But afterward McIver was charged with three counts of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm in connection with a crime, and criminal damage to property.

The latest revelations are a strange twist in a strange tale involving a well-connected Atlanta power couple. Read the full story at: http://www.myajc.com/news/news/local/tex-mciver-faced-charges-in-1990-shooting-of-teens/nssds/
