Tony Pierce, the Selleneit's neighbor, was gardening in his backyard when he was attacked, unprovoked, by Michael Salleneit who shot Pierce in the back twice with a handgun. After shooting Pierce, witnesses say, Selleneit calmly walked back to his trailer. Pierce was able to receive medical attention and lived through the attack. 

Michael Selleneit believed Pierce had been 'telepathically raping' his wife for years, and was using crack cocaine to control her mind. The couple discussed the shooting before it happened, and the arrest warrant states Meloney Selleneit told her husband to, "go for it."
