“’She’s bold,’ the uncle said. ‘She ain’t scared of nothing.’” It’s hard to argue with un-named uncle whose visiting relative was approached by a stranger who asked to use a phone and then for a ride before robbing the man.
The woman’s uncle, on condition of anonymity, told the local Fox affiliate that she and her husband were visiting him at his home in Whitehaven, a neighborhood in Memphis. On Sunday, a man wearing a light-blue jacket held up the husband in broad daylight. As seen on video, the suspect has his hand at his waist on what witnesses said was a gun.
When the woman saw what was happening, she came outside armed with her uncle’s gun.
“I advise you to back the f@ck up,” she said. The uncle said the woman wasn’t trying to hit the robber with the warning shot.
That’s right, she fired a warning shot at the bad guy as he ran away in a residential neighborhood. Not something we’d advise.
“She said she didn’t want to kill him, but when he fired back at us after she fired the warning shot, she said she was trying to hit him then but didn’t,” he told the outlet.
Thankfully, no one was hurt. And the local 5-0 are looking for the hoodie-clad man using the footage captured by the uncle’s security camera. Result.
