Raw Video Captures Moment Police Take Down Suspect Wielding Bat, Knife With Beanbag Round To The Head, Fired From 12-Gauge Shotgun – The Blaze

Police in Lubbock, Texas, responded to a report of a man attacking a Walmart employee and found suspect welding a bat and knife outside. Raw dashcam footage captured the moment officers took down the suspect using “less-lethal” munitions, or more specifically, a beanbag round fired from a 12-gauge shotgun.

“Listen to me, put the knife down! Put the damn knife down! Put it down! Just throw it,” an officer is heard saying in the video.

Moments later, a beanbag round fired by one of the cops hits the suspect, identified as Martin Salazar Hernandez, directly in the head. He went to the ground and officers were able to arrest him.

.

.
Lubbock Police Department Assistant Chief Greg Stevens said Hernandez was transported to the hospital and was in stable condition.

.

.
The Avalanche-Journal quoted Stevens as saying, “I’m not going to make any determination as to whether this incident is justified or not. It is an ongoing investigation.”

“But very early, we’re going to put the videos out from the police cars to make sure that we’re ahead of it and that you understand that we are conducting the investigation and from what we can see from the preliminary inquiry, the officers followed policy,” he added.

Awesome Video Shows What Happens When An Armed Robber Shoves Aside A Guy Who Happens To Be A Former Marinre – Right Scoop

An idiot thug tried to rob a gas station early one morning and pushed aside a man who was in his way. Unfortunately for his dumb ass, the guy turned out to be a firefighter and a former marine. It did not go well for the robber.

Watch below:

.

.
More from Fox10TV:

“This guy walks in and gets up to me and, you know, and puts his hand on me and kind of moves me out of the way,” he said. “So I kind of step back and realize that he’s not paying attention to me; he just wanted me out of the way so he moves me and goes up to the cash register.”

Gaskey is seen in the video moving back, his hands in the air, apparently mistaking the man, identified by police as Dylan John Bearden, for an impatient customer. “Initially, I was just shocked that someone would be putting their hands on me,” Gaskey said.

“I glance over and realize he’s got a black hood or mask over his face, so immediately it’s obvious what his intentions are,” he continued.

Police say Bearden demanded money from the clerk as he pulled a weapon.

Gaskey described what happened at that point. “So he moves me and goes up to the cash register, to the cashier, and pulls out a fixed blade knife and tells her, ‘This is gonna be quick and easy,’ you know, something about ‘Give me the money.’”

That’s when the guy who’d been shoved aside sprang into action.

“I have the element of surprise at this moment while he’s talking to her, so I jumped on his back and went for the control of the knife, grabbed his arm and flipped him over to maintain control of the weapon and get him on the ground,” Gaskey said. “I wrestled the knife away from him and I just subdued him and maintained control of his body until the police arrived a few minutes later.”

Security video shows Gaskey reacting and leaping forward, pulling Bearden to the ground, taking the knife from him, and holding him until police arrive.

“Once I got him on the ground, it was pretty quick. It wasn’t a long fight; it wasn’t incredibly rough. I controlled his arm on the way to the ground, I got on top of him, and once I was wrestled the knife away from him and moved it away from his reach, I was able to put pressure on his shoulder, control him, and stop him from struggling. Once he stopped struggling, it became rather civil,” Gaskey said.

The suspect was outmatched, to say the least.

“I controlled him, I controlled his arms, and I told him, ‘We’re not gonna move til the cops get here. And if you move or you do anything I don’t like, that’s gonna be a problem for me and we’ll go from there,’” he said.

Bearden, apparently, heeded the advice.

“Once I had control of him, he didn’t fight anymore. I kept my pressure on his wrists, I kept my weight on his back, and we basically just sat there until the cops,” Gaskey said.

Dumbass was arrested once the cops arrived.

Suspect Dead After Man With Concealed Carry Permit Intervenes In Alleged Carjacking – Conservative Infidel

.

.
A man with a concealed carry permit fatally shot a man in a Maceys parking lot after intervening in a carjacking in Orem Saturday morning, and so far police say the man will not face charges as it appears the shooting was justified.

The incident started at the Summit Ridge Apartment Complex in the area of 1700 S. 400 East when police were called to a fight at about 10:45 a.m. Five people, three women and two men, fled the scene in a vehicle.

FOX 13 News’ Robert Boyd reports a resident of an apartment was nearly hit at some point as the suspects drove through a grassy area during their escape.

“I could have been hit, I was standing right here and they came up and the officer just followed pursuit,” Witness Rae Eddy said.

Police said the suspects’ vehicle stopped in the area of 1010 South and 400 East after they hit a curb. Surveillance footage shows the five people exiting the vehicle. A 26-year-old male suspect stole a pickup truck from a home in that area and the other four left the area on foot.

Two of the females that fled on foot were apprehended and taken in for questioning regarding the incident. The suspect who fled in the truck drove to Maceys, 800 N. State Street.

While at the grocery store, police say, the suspect abandoned the truck and went to steal another vehicle in the parking lot.

“Subject gets out of the truck, goes over and pulls the lady out of the silver Mercedes, starts to get in the car, she’s screaming for help,” said Captain Ned Jackson of the Orem Police Department.

The suspect attempted to carjack the woman in a Mercedes at about 11:18 a.m., and that’s when a shopper, so far only identified as a 31-year-old male, confronted the suspect.

“Our citizen goes up at gun point, has him get out of the car, the guy gets out of the car,” Jackson said. “The suspect lunged and tried to get the gun from him, so at that point he’s trying to protect himself and shoots the gentleman.”

Police said the shopper, who had a concealed carry permit, was threatened and fired his weapon.

The suspect, who police have not yet identified, suffered a single gunshot wound and was transported to Utah Valley Hospital, where he died from his injuries.

Police say the man had several felony warrants. Officers are actively searching for the other two suspects involved in the original incident.

Officials with the Orem Police Department said the man who fired the gun is not facing charges at this point because it appears his use of deadly force was justified.

Clark Aposhian is on the board of the Utah Shooting Sports Council, which is a group that advocates for the right of Utahns to “keep and bear their private arms for security and defense of self, family, others, property, the state, and all other lawful purposes,” and he shared his perspective on the legality of the shopper’s actions.

“If someone is trying to break into your vehicle, especially while you are in it, that’s considered a forcible felony under Utah law and under that code section it says you can use any force necessary to stop the person who is in the commission of that forcible felony,” he said.

None of the names of the people involved in this case will be released until the autopsy is complete, which is scheduled to take place on Monday. FOX 13 News will have more information as it becomes available.

Passerby With Concealed Carry Permit Stops Slaughter In Philly – Bearing Arms

.

.
If you ask a concealed handgun permit holder why they choose to carry a concealed weapon all of the time, they’ll sometimes dryly reply that it’s because criminals are rarely considerate enough to put their deadly crimes on the intended victim’s calendar.

Such was the case in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania yesterday, when a man with a concealed carry permit heard gun shots as he passed by a barbershop, ran in, and stopped a massacre in the making by shooting a man who had opened fire on employees and customers:

Police say a man likely saved the lives of several people when he shot and killed a gunman inside a West Philadelphia barbershop.

A 40-year-old man was inside Falah Barber Shop Inc. on the 600 block of Preston Street shortly before 3 p.m. Sunday when police say he began fighting with another person inside.

“They were arguing,” said 16-year-old Yusaf Mack who was a customer inside the shop at the time. “They were taking it too far and one of the barbers said, ‘chill out.’”

The fight quickly escalated and the 40-year-old man took out his gun and opened fire on customers and barbers, police said.

“I heard gunshots so I ducked and I ran,” said Mack.

As he was shooting, another man outside heard the gunfire, ran into the shop and took out his own gun, according to investigators. He then opened fire, striking the 40-year-old man once in the chest.

The man who had started shooting at customers and staff in the barbershop was taken by ambulance to a local hospital, where he died of his injuries.

The concealed carry permit holder turned himself in at a local police precinct after the shooting, and Philadelphia police are conducting a formal investigation. Early indications are that the permit holder likely saved “a lot of people.”

As a general rule, citizens have the right to defend their lives and the lives of others against immediate and proximate deadly force attacks.

No charges are expected to be filed against the concealed carry permit holder.

Trio Of Armed Thugs Tied Up Man And His Wife, Then Momentarily Left Them Unattended. When They Returned, There Was A Surprise Waiting – The Blaze

A man and his wife were reportedly attacked and tied up by a trio of home intruders who forced their way into the couple’s Lakewood, Washington, home on Tuesday. The horrifying incident left one of the intruders dead and the others running for their lives, according to police.

The 66-year-old wife was reportedly in the bath when three men knocked on the door. When the husband, 62, answered the door, he quickly realized he didn’t know them and tried to close the door. Unfortunately, the men – armed with a gun and knife – overpowered him and entered the home.

The thugs beat the man severely, leaving him needing stitches, and cut his wife’s hand, according to court documents obtained by the News Tribune. The men then allegedly tied up the couple and searched the house for valuable items to steal. At one point, they momentarily left the house – and it turned out to be a huge mistake.

During the brief time that the men were outside, the husband was apparently able to free himself, untie his wife and relocate to their bedroom. They locked the door and the man retrieved his firearm from a lock box and aimed it at the door.

When the suspects returned and busted through the door, the husband opened fire. Police believe the man fatally hit one of the robbers. Police later identified the deceased suspect as 19-year-old Taijon Voorhees. All three of the men ran out of the house in fear.

Police later arrested Duprea Wilson, 19, in connection to the robbery, which he reportedly told others had “gone wrong.” The suspects may have broke into the wrong house looking for drugs and money, according to investigators.

.
………………….

.
Wilson was later charged with 12 felonies, including first-degree manslaughter, robbery, kidnapping and assault.

2nd Amendment Success Story: Armed Citizen Kills Serial Bank Robber, Another Arrested – Universal Free Press

The duo behind a rash of Phoenix bank robberies is out of business, with one now dead and the other under arrest, thanks to the efforts of an armed local businessman.

.

.
On Wednesday, the Desert Schools Federal Credit Union was targeted by Lyndell Cherry, age 29 and Vincent Jones, age 21, who entered at around 2 p.m. and demanded money. The two had left the keys in the ignition and the engine of their getaway vehicle running, a mistake which proved to be their undoing.

While the robbery was taking place, one credit union employee was able to call Sean Quaid, who owns a business next door to the credit union and told him what was happening. Quaid grabbed his gun and ran outside. After determining which was the likely vehicle of the perpetrators, Quaid removed the keys from the ignition.

When attempting their getaway, Cherry and Jones ran outside to their car and found they had no keys. They went back inside to see if they might have dropped them somewhere along the way, even going as far as searching a woman’s purse inside to see if she might have picked them up.

With time running out, the robbers ran back outside and accosted a couple in a Chevy pickup, with Jones pointing his gun and demanding their vehicle. At that point, Quaid stepped in, ordering the felonious pair to stop. It was then that Cherry reportedly spun around and aimed his gun at Quaid, who fired first, striking Cherry.

Jones jumped into the truck and drove off, crashing into several cars in the shopping center along the way as he made his way out into traffic. He reportedly ran a red light and collided with a minivan, which caused both vehicles to crash into an adjacent brick wall. Jones then bailed out of the stolen truck but was apprehended by police soon afterwards.

Fortunately no one was injured in the melee, other than the fatally shot Cherry. Unsurprisingly, Jones is reported to have still lived with his mother prior to taking up residence at his new home, at the Arizona taxpayer’s expense.

In addition to the multiple charges associated with this robbery, Jones admitted to police that the pair had also committed other robberies previously. He will not only face those charges, but he is also looking at six counts of kidnapping, one of aggravated assault, and one of first-degree murder for the death of Cherry.

It was not a good day for Cherry or Jones. It was a good day however for the Second Amendment, the people of Arizona and Sean Quaid, a hero who stood up and took action, and possibly saved innocent lives in the process.

Bethel Park Music Store Owner Shoots Intruder – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The owner of a Bethel Park music store shot and killed an intruder who had attacked the owner’s wife inside their store late this morning.

.

Bethel Park police Chief John Mackey said Alfred Armen, owner of Armen’s House of Music at 5920 Library Road, jumped to his wife’s defense as she was being clubbed by a man who, just minutes earlier, had entered the store to browse.

The man stayed in the store for two or three minutes, went outside to his car, and came back in with some type of wooden club, Chief Mackey said.

He attacked Sylvia Armen, clubbing her on the head, and Mr. Armen came to her defense, the chief said.

The man then attacked him with the club, and Mr. Armen pulled a revolver and shot him dead, Chief Mackey said.

Allegheny County homicide detectives were assisting Bethel Park police with the investigation.

Chief Mackey said the Armens were being treated at UPMC Mercy Hospital for injuries they received in the attack.

The chief said robbery appeared not to be the motive in the attacks. He said he didn’t know whether the Armens knew the man, described only as white and in his early 30s.

The Allegheny County medical examiner’s office removed the body from the store about 4 p.m.

The store sells instruments and offers music lessons, according to its Facebook page.

Suspect Robs Family At Miami Burger King, Then Man Shoots Him: Police – WTVJ

A father who was robbed while eating with his family took out his own gun and shot the suspect, Miami Police said.

.

It happened at about 1 p.m. Friday at the Burger King restaurant at Biscayne Boulevard and Northeast 17th Street, police said.

The robber walked in, flashed his gun to the family, demanded their valuables, then headed for the door, according to police.

The father, fearing for his life, took out his gun and shot the suspect in the leg as he stood outside the restaurant, police said.

The suspect, 36-year-old Travis Harris, jumped into a getaway Ford F-150 and took off, police said.

Police said they found him and the driver, 38-year-old Ramon Smalls, a few blocks away thanks to a Good Samaritan who followed them and alerted police. The two suspects were taken into custody at a gas station at Northeast 2nd Avenue and 26th Street after they apparently ran out of fuel, police added.

The Burger King incident followed an earlier incident in which the duo teamed up to rob a young woman of her iPhone 4S at 2200 NE 4th Ave. at about 10:15 a.m., with Smalls driving the truck as they fled, police said. Her phone was later found inside the truck, police added.

Harris was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma to be treated for his gunshot wound, and faces three counts of armed robbery with a firearm, police said.

Smalls faces one count of strongarm robbery for the morning incident, and possible pending charges for the afternoon incident, police said.

It was not immediately known whether Harris or Smalls have attorneys.

The father who fired his gun is not being charged, police said.

Armed Good Samaritans Rescue Man After Gunpoint Robbery: They ‘Protected Me When I Couldn’t Protect Myself’ – The Blaze

A Houston man was robbed at gunpoint as he made his way to his car after leaving a bar on Thursday. But in addition to the man’s wallet and phone, the robber ended up with bullet wounds and bite marks from a German Shepherd, thanks to a pair of quick-thinking good Samaritans.

Police say the armed thug was canvassing a local neighborhood when he thought he had found an easy mark. The victim, Kevin Dorsey, told KHOU that he hadn’t even closed his car door before a man, dressed in all black and wearing a ski mask, put a gun to his chest and demanded his wallet, cell phone and car keys.

Dorsey took off on foot after being robbed, prompting two men in a Mercedes to ask him what had happened.

“As soon as they pass me, they see the guy has a gun to me,” Dorsey told KPRC. “They stopped right there. The guys in the gray Mercedes asked me, ‘Did you just get jacked?’ I said yes.”

The two unidentified vigilantes went after the suspect and reportedly exchanged fire with the criminal. The good guys eventually won the gun fight and wounded the thief.

In a twist of irony, the robber jumped a fence after being shot in an attempt to escape – only to find a German Shepherd waiting for him on the other side. The dog attacked him and prevented him from escaping before police arrived.

“I don’t own a gun. I’m totally at the mercy of my saviors. They obviously sent two angels to help me. These people protected me when I couldn’t protect myself.”

The robbery suspect, later identified by police as Christopher Hutchins, was being treated at Ben Taub Hospital for a gunshot to his abdomen. He is expected to recover.

It’s unclear whether the two men who came to Dorsey’s rescue were concealed carry permit holders, however, reports do not indicate that police took any action against the men. In Texas, gun owners can carry firearms in their car without a concealed carry permit so long as the weapon is not concealed and the owner is not involved in criminal activity, a criminal street gang or otherwise prohibited by law from carrying a weapon.
