In the footage Post then seems to approach his neighbor, who pulls out a revolver and fires. The victim then staggered as his wife rushed to get help with the child, the gunman then walked away. Shane's wife, Irina, told Action News 4 that her husband was dropped off in a truck parked in the neighbor's place by his coworker Rudy. She stated, "I saw them pull in, and I went, and I took the baby because she’s only three months old, and Rudy has never met her. He came out in a robe, and he had already his gun loaded in his pocket. He still had his gun pointed at him, and Shane was screaming, ‘stop, stop.'"
“I thought that initially, that it was fake, [like] it was not a real bullet, because there was no blood or anything,” Irina said. The footage also shows the f\urious neighbor retreat saying 'get out of my spot now'.
Shane was taken to Baylor of Waxahachie until he was stabilized, then airlifted to Methodist Dallas Medical Center where he underwent surgery.
Shane, the NPC 2017 Mr. Pittsburgh, told a local news outlet that the bullet is still in him. He said: "He had all intentions of coming out there, pulling his gun, and killing me."
