Nashville Gunfight

Postby SHMIV » Sun, 30 Apr 2017 09:48:39

Some guy is in a store, minding his business, shopping for shoes, with a bunch of other customers. Without warning, 3 men burst from the back of the store, guns drawn and actively firing.

The guy shopping draws his weapon, and shoots all 3 attackers. One is dead, one is in critical condition, and I assume the third guy is in a cell, with extra holes in his body and fresh bandages. Aside from the 3 attackers, no one else was injured.

I'm going to hazard a wild guess, and suggest that maybe this guy had fired a gun, once or twice before.

That bearingarms.com article is missing something and the reader comments somewhat bear that out.

This report, http://wkrn.com/2017/04/21/man-killed-d ... eaux-shop/, states that the person that drove off the perps got his weapon by taking it from one of them.

"Witnesses said one of the people in the group was able to wrestle one of the suspect’s gun away and exchanged fired with at least one person."

The source says something else:

Metro police told News 2 a group of people were inside the store when at least three armed suspects came in through an unlocked back door and began firing.

Witnesses said one of the people in the group was able to wrestle one of the suspect’s gun away and exchanged fired with at least one person.

Firing your own weapon is one, wrestling for the attacker weapon and then shoot, probably with same pistol, it's way more. Steel balls.

And yet another news report on this:
http://www.wsmv.com/story/35207119/1-ki ... shoe-store

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
One person is dead and two others are injured after an overnight shootout.

The shooting happened the Hot Kicks shoe store on Clarksville Pike around 11 p.m. Thursday.

Investigators say 22-year-old Myles Owens and a small group were gathered inside the store hanging out, which is when another group of men came in and opened fire.

Police said Owens wrestled one of the suspect’s gun away and returned fire.

When police got to the scene, they found 19-year-old Damelvian Evans in critical condition. He later died at the hospital.

Two other men, Ricky Starks and Dwight Mason Jr., both 18, showed up at Centennial Hospital. One is in critical condition, but the other is expected to be OK.

Police said Starks and Mason have been interviewed.

According to police, the three people who were shot are all believed to be part of the group that opened fire.

Police said it's not clear what led up to the gunfire.

Amazing.

Who goes all wild west in a shoe store, like that? That's just strange. Makes me wonder if Mr. Owens, or one of his group, knew the attacker's.

I was thinking the same thing.
