According to the Idaho State Journal, The events of the shooting unfolded in slow motion to Pocatello, Idaho apartment resident James Cvengros.
“In my mind, it lasted for hours, but on the video it all happened in seconds,” Cvengros said.
Cvengros saw the video footage of the incident where he shot neighbor Twain Thomas for the first time at Thomas’s sentencing last week.
Thomas pleaded guilty to attempted murder and aggravated assault as part of a plea agreement.
The video, recorded by Cvengros, documented the incident last February where Thomas kicked down his door armed with a machete, but Cvengros handed the footage over to police and never saw it until the sentencing.
“Seeing the video kind of brought it all back,” Cvengros said. “But there’s not a doubt in my mind that I did the right thing.”
Thomas was sentenced to a combined prison sentence of 10 years fixed and 10 years indeterminate as part of the plea agreement.
