Insane man from New York is facing charges of second-degree murder for attempting to kill Donald Trump and actually killing someone else. To make things worse, he is convinced he murdered Donald Trump… WTF!

A New York man accused of killing a UPS employee is convinced that the person he shot with a rifle this month is President-elect Donald Trump, authorities said. Justin Barkley said during a Monday hearing, in which he attempted to plead guilty, that he had shot and killed the president-elect, Tompkins County Acting District Attorney Andrew Bonavia told The Washington Post. Barkley has been indicted on charges of second-degree murder and menacing a police officer. After Barkley’s statement about Trump, the judge stopped the proceeding and ordered a competency evaluation, Bonavia said. Two psychiatrists will determine Barkley’s ability to stand trial.

Police said Barkley shot and killed William Schumacher at a Walmart parking lot in Ithaca, N.Y., at about 12:50 a.m. on Dec. 8. Barkley then drove his truck over Schumacher’s body before driving away, according to court records.
Officers later found Barkley’s black truck on a nearby highway and tried to stop him, but the 38-year-old kept driving another 13 miles to his home in the town of Dryden. Four patrol cars followed Dryden, court records say, and officers watched him get out of his truck while holding a rifle. He went inside his house, where he remained the rest of the night.
After a standoff lasting several hours, Barkley left the house and surrendered. Police later found a Remington Model 700, .30-06-caliber rifle in his basement. Court records say he also “made several admissions” to detectives.
Officer Jamie Williamson, a spokesman for the Ithaca Police Department, said that Barkley was articulate and polite to officers. He smiled when he talked and said “thank you” during a court hearing when an officer opened the door for him.
He seemed “like anybody else walking down the street,” Williamson said – except for one thing.
“He’s convinced beyond any sort of reasonable doubt that he killed Donald Trump,” Williamson said.
What a lunatic!
