A surveillance video clip shows a man driving into his garage when three armed men come in as the garage door is attempting to close. The man, an off-duty police officer, was with his wife in the car. Things turn violent quickly, as one of the armed robbers . . .
starts to open the man’s car door while he has a gun in his hand. Within a second, both men fire a shot. The victim seems to get his shot off just a split second before the armed robber.
The victim then fires several more rounds at the man, which hit the intended target. The other two men were further away and were not hit, but one was picked up by police later on. The armed robber who was shot eventually died from his injuries.
The one thing that I don’t like about this video is when the man runs out of the garage towards the direction of the fleeing robbers instead of taking cover behind his vehicle. Even moreso because the one robber had already fired a shot. Once he’s back out of the garage, he makes himself vulnerable again.
Take cover, close the garage door, call police. Wait. He is the police! Talk about a bad break for the bad guys.
Aside from that, this man did all that he could to defend himself and the other person that was with him. Even before the bad guy tried to open his car door, our ‘victim’ was ready with firearm in hand.
