A26-year-old Oklahoma woman named Kyndal McVey is suing a 45-year-old former Air Force veteran named Alexander Feaster for “reckless disregard” and “negligence” after he shot her when she removed a Nazi flag hanging outside of his home. According to police, on June 28, 2020, McVey was at a party in a house across the street from Feaster’s home. Around 2:55 a.m. local time, McVey approached Feaster’s residence and pulled down one of the two Nazi flags hanging outside of his home on a dare. When running back across the street with it, Feaster reportedly emerged from his front door and fired several shots with his rifle, striking her in the lower abdomen and legs. She was taken to the hospital and survived. While investigating, officers with the Waukomis Police Department noticed that Feaster had placed a chair facing his front door and had a large ashtray sitting nearby with several cigarette butts. “It appeared that Mr. Feaster was anticipating an incident to take place and had been watching from that spot,” a sheriff’s deputy reported. Sheriff’s Office Deputy Marshall Woodson told the Enid News & Eagle that footage showing Feaster firing his weapon revealed that McVey “did not appear to be in any way a threat to Feaster due to her obviously running away from his residence with only a flag in her hand.” McVey is now suing Feaster for $75,000 in medical expenses, mental and physical pain and suffering, lost time and any impairment or change in her physical or mental condition which could also lead to wrongful death.
