Well this is pretty much right out of a bad movie. We have a defensive gun use out of Jackson, Mississippi today.

According to MS News Now,

They say the guest was approached by a man asking for cigarettes.

The hotel guest said he didn’t have any cigarettes.

The man began to walk away, turned around and said “betcha’ ain’t got one of these,” pointing a gun at the victim.

The man did however have “one of these” and fired at the man trying to rob him, striking him in the chest.

The shot suspect managed to run away and make it to a nearby apartment complex where he called authorities for help. The suspect was taken by ambulance to an area hospital for treatment. His current medical status is unknown.

We don’t have any information on the type of firearm used or the number of shots fired at this time.

This is the 12th defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Mississippi and the 1,181st defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
