Defensive Gun Use of the Day: Knife…Gunfight…You Know the Rest Edition

Come on, how many times does it have to be said? Austin Lee Harvey (no really) and a pal, Justin Slivinski, tried to stick up a guy using an ATM from his car Friday night in Fern Park just north of Orlando. But while the two yoots brought knives, the motorist had…well, you guessed it. From cfnews13.com: “The man, armed with a gun, shot at them and hit the other suspect, 24-year-old Justin Slivinski. Slivinski was taken to Florida Hospital Altamonte where he was pronounced dead.” So that’s one inmate the people of Florida won’t have to pay to support. Harvey, though, managed to dodge the incoming fire, but now resides in the John E. Polk Correctional Facility. While the victim won’t be charged, Harvey has a few court dates ahead of him. He’s facing attempted armed robbery and murder charges (since his buddy was killed during the crime). Good luck with all of that, Austin.
