Long-awaited ruling reveals details of 1990 Columbus murder, botched robbery

Ward Brockman told authorities he cocked the revolver, pointed it at Billy Lynn and said, “Give me all the money.” Lynn held his arms out and said, “You got it,” but made no move to comply. Brockman demanded money again. Lynn, smiling, again said, “You got it.” Brockman said, “No, you got it,” and shot Lynn in the gut, killing him.
