Generally, we hear about a brave citizen using their concealed carry weapon to stop a shooter or to prevent a shooting, but when is the last time you heard about an unarmed citizen stopping an armed shooter? That’s exactly what happened On Father’s Day as a dad and his 14-year-old daughter were enjoying a meal at a restaurant in Ocala, when the father stopped a shooter from leaving the scene of his shooting.
Ocala Fire Rescue confirms that one person is dead after being shot at the Ken’s Winghouse of Ocala around 10 p.m. last night.
Two men reportedly got into an argument at the restaurant. Blows were exchanged and one man pulled a gun on the other. Numerous shots were fired into his chest and back.
A witness, 39-year-old Matthew Boyd, said he was with his 14-year-old daughter celebrating Father’s Day dinner when the incident occurred. He said he saw a guy run in front of them, then heard ” a popping noise.” Boyd went on to say that his daughter saw a man hit another man at the restaurant…
One has to wonder what made the dad think he could stop an armed man who just shot another man or why didn’t the shooter resist being stopped by the dad. However, the dad is a brave concerned citizen who could not just sit by and do nothing. If more people got involved in stopping criminals, there would be a lot fewer crimes being committed and fewer people victimized.
