The Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports that when a 21-year-old got kicked out of a party on Oak Tree Lane in Revere for brawling, he went and got his pa and a female relative and returned to apply some justice:
The 21-year-old and 50-year-old men are believed to have struck the residence with rocks and baseball bats.
Unfortunately for them, the 77-year-old owner of the house, Robert Distefano, had them outgunned - in the form of a deceased family member's handgun, which he grabbed before confronting them outside:
When the two men approached him, Distefano allegedly fired on them. The 21-year-old suffered critical injuries but is expected to survive after surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital, and the 50-year-old suffered gunshot wounds to his back and arm that are not believed to be life-threatening. Based on all the facts and circumstances available to investigators at the time, Distefano was charged only with unlawful possession of a firearm within a home -- a misdemeanor with no mandatory jail time -- and not with any offenses stemming from the shooting itself. He will likely be arraigned Monday in Chelsea District Court.
