We've all seen this scenario here before . Here's what really happened.
>>>news story<<<Police said a man approached the car, pulled out a gun and demanded money. Authorities said the driver had his own weapon and shot the robber.
Now, if you read the whole article... you see that there was a bit of "collateral damage." Both the females in the car were shot in the back, and the defending shooter was shot in the leg.
What would you do? How would/could you avoid the collateral damage?
Assuming this as the basis of the scene... Everybody's in the front seat (or it's a standard cab pickup truck). You have pulled up into the parking lot of your sister's apt. complex... into a guest space. You are dropping her and her roommate off after you took your sis to her birthday dinner.
It's an older two level apt. complex. (Facing 2 story units on each side of a common parking lot. Apartment entries are on an open balcony on second floor. on first level, the entries are on the sidewalk under 2nd floor balcony both level etries face the lot.) BG comes out of the stairway in the center of the side you are facing. You see him, he smiles and nods, you are talking to your sis, she's looking at you and doesn't see him.
Next thing you know, he's at your side window, with a gun in your face... "I need your wallet , Jack."
