Monument Man Shoots and Kills Brother while Practicing Defensive Techniques

This morning, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office released new details about a deadly shooting that happened in a rural community near Monument, CO on Sunday evening.

Police report that Erik Mattyasovsky, 30, is facing charges of reckless manslaughter and prohibited use of a weapon in the shooting death of his brother, whose name was not released.

The sheriff’s office says that when questioned, Mattyasovsky¬†admitted that he shot his brother while they were practicing defensive techniques.

The shooting happened at around 6:15 p.m. in the 19800 block of Alexandria Drive, which is in a neighborhood just east of I-25 and north of Palmer Ridge High School.

Now, while information is still sparse regarding just how Mattyasovsky’s brother was shot, but it appears that this is just another case of a negligent discharge that tragically ended in a death.

Please remember, to everyone practicing their defensive techniques to follow the rules of firearms and NEVER let your guard down or become complacent or lax around a firearm. It could cause the injury or death of someone you care about, or yourself, and can land someone in jail for a very long time.

    Brian was x – special forces/ a competition shooter. Exercised the utmost respect for firearms and had a far greater background concerning them than most anyone on this thread. **** off and have some respect until the investigation is completed. That’s why we have a judicial process.
