Would-be robber messes with the wrong gun-toting Uber driver

Mon, 12/19/2016 - 08:28

One Florida Uber driver fatally shot a would-be robber who tried to ambush him near a high-end South Florida mall, the Aventura Police Department said Sunday.

Chris Goranitis, spokesman for the APD, told local media outlets that the driver had picked up a passenger around 5:30 a.m. Sunday when a robber, who was driving a minivan, cut him off near the Aventura Mall, which is situated between Miami and Fort Lauderdale.

At that point, the Uber driver told authorities that the robber came toward him, pointing two handguns in his direction.

But Goranitis said the Uber driver wasted no time. He pulled his own firearm and shot off two rounds, leaving the robber dead. Two other alleged accomplices in the minivan immediately sped away after the shots rang out. Police are still searching for them.

The Uber operator had a concealed carry permit, Goranitis said. Neither he nor the passengers in his car sustained any injuries.

Creep in clown mask points rifle at woman, demands entry into house — turns out she has a gun, too

Tue, 11/01/2016 - 15:28

A Dayton, Ohio, woman was making dinner in her kitchen late in the evening last week — while facing away from her back door.

Then she noticed a reflection in the lens of her glasses, WDTN-TV reported.

When she turned around she saw a male at the door, according to a Dayton police report, wearing a clown mask and holding a rifle.

Dressed also in a long-sleeved black shirt, black gloves and black jeans, police said the man told the resident to open her back door, which was locked.

Instead, she ran into her living room and saw two other men in her front yard, and the other man with the clown mask soon joined them.

Citing the police report about last Thursday’s incident, WDTN said the woman grabbed her “black revolver handgun” and walked out front where the man with clown mask pointed the rifle at her and attempted to load it.

Police said she told the man to drop the rifle — and when he didn’t comply, she fired a “warning shot” into the garage, the station said.

All the men in the yard took off running, WDTN reported.
