This defensive gun use started out going very badly for the potential victims, but ended up going OK thanks to the couple’s will to live.
According to ABC6:
Homicide detectives said the suspect forced his way into the victim’s apartment, pulled his gun and disarmed the would-be victim. But the victim and his pregnant fiancé wrestled the gun back and shot the suspect.
The suspect, identified as Dequan Cummings, of Indianapolis, was pronounced dead at the scene.
“We are in support of legal gun ownership, make no mistake about that. Those are some of the basic tenants of our constitution. We want people to exercise caution, wisdom, and proper gun safety,” said IMPD Spokesman Christopher Wilburn.
While it’s unclear what conditions led to the first victim losing control of his firearm this story certainly highlights the importance of knowing how to maintain control of your firearm in close quarters.
