Phil Cowherd III has been a member of the Harrisburg, N.C. Town Council for 15 years. He was elected mayor pro tem three times, according to his biography on the town’s website. But Cowherd didn’t seem too civic minded when he allegedly shot his son after a Carolina Panthers game on October 5 according to his wife. Cowherd believed the son an intruder said Sheila Cowherd in a 911 call. “My son was banging and knocking my door apart, I don’t understand why, but my husband must have been afraid– he went and got the gun.” Scared or angry? Sheila Cowherd also said her husband shot her son in the leg because he wouldn’t stop “banging on the door.” Authorities believe it was a fight between father and son.
