|Incident at a Glance|
|# of Suspects:||2||Shots Fired:||Multiple|
|Suspect Killed:||No, Yes||State:||OH|
According to WKYC, a Cleveland, OH man was facing a scary situation late last week.
The homeowner and a woman were leaving the homeowner’s residence when they were attacked by two masked men with guns.
One of the suspects pistol whipped the homeowner during an altercation in which the suspect tried to remove the homeowner from his vehicle.
Fortunately, the homeowner managed to grab a firearm that was in his vehicle and open fire on the suspect.
The suspect was struck several times and was pronounced dead at the scene of the shooting. He was identified as Waymone Williams, age 23.
The second suspect, in a display of how callous these thieves can be, stole the woman’s purse and ran away as his accomplice lay dying. No honor among thieves I suppose.
The homeowner was treated for minor injuries, but is expected to be fine.
This is the second incident in less than a week where a gun kept in a vehicle has saved someone from potential bodily harm. Also last week, a couple in Texas was kidnapped and forced to remove money from a bank where the wife worked. Fortunately the husband was able to grab a firearm in the vehicle as the suspects had them drive away from the bank. He shot and killed one of the suspects and wounded the other.
