“I went and got my shotgun and I said, ‘I’m not going to do anything unless it’s directly over my property,’ ” Merideth said, noting that the drone briefly disappeared when his daughter waved it off. “Within a minute or so, here it came. It was hovering over top of my property, and I shot it out of the sky. I didn’t shoot across the road, I didn’t shoot across my neighbor’s fences, I shot directly into the air REST OF STORY
