|Incident at a Glance|
|# of Suspects:||1||Shots Fired:||Unknown|
Talk about instant karma. While it’s usually advisable to have your own gun in a defensive situation, it sounds like this couple did what they could with what they had.
In what can only be considered a brazen sexual assault, a man armed with a handgun forced a couple to walk to a secluded area at gunpoint.
Once there, the suspect began to sexually assault the female member of the couple. Fortunately, the male member of the couple was able to disarm the suspect and shot him with his own gun.
According to WWLTV,
According to an NOPD spokesman Officer Garry Flot, the 26-year-old man approached an adult male and female as they were walking, produced a handgun, and demanded that they walk to a building that was being renovated.
Once they entered the yard, the man sexually assaulted the woman, at which time the male that was with her disarmed the 26-year-old and fatally shot him.
Detectives recovered the handgun from the scene and are in the process of determining the origin of the weapon.
The male and female victims were interviewed and released.
We’re going to file this one under defensive gun uses even though it was the suspect’s gun that was ultimately used to kill him.
