Firing into the air seems pretty dumb, though. For one thing it allows the continual waste of oxygen by the criminal.
“The best thing to is to be a good witness and call the police.”
The guy pulled a gun on them!
You can’t “be a good witness” or “call” WHEN YOU’RE DEAD!!
—Robbery prevented, no one hurt.—
That’s pretty much how I see it. I wonder if they keyed the guy’s car afterward...
The buyers lives were threatened. Do you have to a rocket scientist to understand?
Given the city, the criminals get to keep their guns, but I suspect the victims guns are going to be stolen by the police.
In my area of KY a man tried to sell a gun on our local version of CL (yes, it’s awesome. You can sell guns and pets here with online want ads). The buyer tried to rip him off and ended up dead. It was ruled self defense. This one happened at the seller’s house.
And in other news, some people just tried to drive their cars last year and ended up dead. Over 40,000 of them.
Life is risk.
Good as in, "the dead are silent witnesses." They never contradict themselves. Like on that forensics show. No thanks!
But shooting in the air was a bit batty. She's lucky both her and her boyfriend weren't killed. All's well that ends well, I guess. But that dude has got to find someone better to ride shotgun next time!
“The gunman dropped his weapon on Bolton Street and the woman gave chase, “firing her weapon numerous times indiscriminately in the air,” said city police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. No one was hit by gunfire, but police said they seized both guns and arrested the victim on weapons charges.
“We understand that this was a terrifying, frightening situation, but when you fire a gun into the air, you become part of the problem,” Guglielmi said of the female victim in Monday’s Bolton Hill attack. “The best thing to is to be a good witness and call the police.”
All a hit piece on the intended robbery victims.
What???? Who are they kidding??? They arrest the victim??? for shooting into the air??? They were probably mad that they didn't get to use their chalk.
Next time they will have a homicide on their hands, and that is probably what they want, and what they will get.
It sounds like they should have met up in broad daylight in a more public place. If selling something like jewelry or firearms it is probably a good idea to keep your address to yourself as well and make sure you are not followed home. All obvious precautions.
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
