wait a minute something is really missing here! Why was the lady shooting the dog anyways? Because it was on the property or was is after a kid or something? Or this there already something going on between the to owners? People are so strange. I can't imagine shooting a dog just running in my yard? I fi was going to eat me or had rabies....maybe....probably not I GUESS i'M JUST TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY THIS LADY WAS SHOOTING ANYTHING??

This woman seems nuts. Why shoot at anything or anybody unless they are ready to harm you? Why bring a gun out in the first place?

How was she so prepared to shoot a dog running in her yard & why would she shoot at the dog when the dog was clearly not wild if a woman was chading after it? This doesn't make a lot of sense.

A follow-up would be nice. The random shooting of an animal cannot be condoned, can it? Would love to see the woman's court plea - let's think, she was in fear of her life from a vicious dog. Oh and let us not forget there WAS a life lost here.

Since when did it become legal to shoot dogs running across your property?? Maybe in Indiana and Texas but that wouldn't hold up in New Jersey. What a horrible tragedy that this woman was killed, probably just trying to get her dog back. I hope the shooter is properly punished. This isn't the wild west!

There simply has to be more to this story....there are so many unanswered questions. But nonetheless...it's sad that a woman died for whatever reason and someone should be held accountable for pure ignorance and negligence.

She shot them because the woman was trying to catch her dog on this woman's property? Good God. But everyone has to have a gun to "protect:" themselves from serious threats like that.

Kind of a bizarre story. If the lady was trying to catch her loose dog, then why would this woman be trying to shoot it? Something is missing here.

I really don't understand what all is going on in this article. Why the heck would the lady be sitting outside with a gun and want to shoot some harmless neighbor running through the yard chasing a dog? There has got to be more to the story.

Why are guns the first line of action? Even if a gun was necessary, which it wasn't, you go thru safety and only shoot at an object you can identify. She shot the woman! I hope that the gun was taken away and she is held accountable!

Why would she go and grab a gun? Why not call animal control? How horrible for the family of the woman who was killed in this tragedy.

I just don't understand legal terms. What is involuntary manslaughter? The woman had a gun and aimed it towards the person and dog. It seems like this was a voluntary act. Then the authorities say there was no evidence that the shooting was intentional. Then what was the gun out for?! If the shooting was not intentional, there would be no need for the gun!

Involuntary manslaughter is hat she was aiming for the dog but got the woman instead.

Thing to me is that she HAD to have seen the woman chasing the dog, so why shoot at all?

I don't believe that for a moment! How can you not see a woman Chasing a dog! She clearly lost her mind and needs serious help....why grab a gun? That doesn't solve a damn thing, and now this woman is gone and passed all because of a dog on your property? Call animal control! Why are you trying to shoot a dog anyway? What's this world coming to, that you can't even go outside with your dog and play? That woman is shameful! =(

Wow - I doubt this teaches anyone a lesson - but what is wrong with the woman who just decides to get out her gun because a dog runs across her lawn. IDIOT. Poor woman and her family - so senseless and completely unecessary.

Obviously, Melinda Lindauer has some mental problems or was on drugs or drunk or something at the time of this incident. Why would she decide to shoot at a dog that was running on her property? Yet another example of guns in the wrong hands, and now a 29 year-old woman is dead and gone. How sad.
