SCENIC LOOP DYSFUNCTION...
"Shooting" Happens Over Alleged Dog Argument, SCENIC LOOP, October 19, 2015 - Shortly after 5 pm on October 19, 2015, a shooting was reported to the Polk County Sheriff's Office. According to the call, a man had been shot in the face with a shotgun. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Deputies from the Polk County Sheriff's Office and State Troopers. According to witnesses, the two men, Conrad Peak, 74, of Scenic Loop, and Lynn Langley, 37, of Scenic Loop, were allegedly arguing over a dog. Peak allegedly shot Langley in the face with rat shot. Langley fled the scene. Deputies and troopers began combing the adjoining area looking for Langley. Eventually, Langley was located and brought back to the scene by Deputy Billy Duke. As it turns out, it wasn't as bad as it sounded (fortunately). Langley did in fact have some rat shot pellets in his head and he appeared to have bled a little from it (not exactly what you picture when you hear that someone was shot in the face with a shotgun). Both men were cuffed and detained and brought in for questioning. The whole sordid affair remains under investigation by the Polk County Sheriff's Office.
