Defense: Manager did not want to kill, to cook, to middle Yelp argument

HARTFORD, Conn. – A Connecticut restaurant manager charged with fatally shooting a cook during a quarrel over a negative Yelp review says that the killing was not intentional.

James Goolsby is charged with murder in the Dec. 30 killing of Norris Jackson, who was shot four times in the Bonchon Chicken restaurant in Manchester.

A other cook in the restaurant testified Tuesday that Jackson came to his defense when Goolsby angry about a negative review of the restaurant.

The cook said Jackson appeared ready to fight, but not actually touch Goolsby before Goolsby opened fire.

The Journal Inquirer reports that Goolsby’s attorney acknowledged his client was the shooter, but said that he did not intend to kill Jackson. Goolsby said in a written statement that “everything ran completely out of hand.”
