Your Self-Defense story of the Day

Jenn Jacques has the story

According to Chief Greg Jordan, a motel landlord was able to use his firearm to successfully stop a knife-wielding man advancing on him Saturday night.

The incident occurred at the Driftwood Motel in Oak Island, NC., a quiet beach town

“It’s so quiet and a family-friendly and a low-key place where you don’t expect any action or crime,” said beachgoer Elizabeth Finley, who heard the pair of gunshots.

Authorities say at approximately 11:15 p.m., 36-year-old Michael Christopher Auvil, who used to live at the motel, pulled a knife on the landlord during a verbal argument. Witnesses told police that as Auvil continued to advance, the landlord acted in self-defense; drawing his firearm, taking aim, and shooting his armed attacker.

Auvil was pronounced dead at the scene.
