A gunman’s focus on his malfunctioning weapon gave a victim time to arm himself and take his own shot.
That shot missed, but it scared the gunman off, according to bradenton.com.
The shooting drama happened Saturday night outside a home in Manatee County. The gunman approached a man and demanded he be quiet and go inside the house, according to the report. The suspect then pulled the trigger, but the gun failed to discharge.
That’s when the victim took matter into his own hands, grabbing a weapon of his own taking a shot at the distracted gunman.
