George Stover was shot in his West Towson home in February. A retired state government worker, he is also an actor who has appeared in many of John Waters' early films. He said that his love of Western films helped him cope with the ordeal, because John Wayne never cried or saw a psychiatrist after he had been shot. Stover is shown with a cowboy-themed mug that reads "Buckaroo."
