On the surface, their argument had been about something benign, like a garden hose, but in reality, one was in a power struggle with the other. Only the armed participant saw the shooting as a win, the unarmed participant didnt think anybody won at something like that, but he was dead, so it didn't matter much what he thought, and it hadn't done much good for him to try and explain what he thought, since he got shot for it the first time he did.
