Let's say your at home with your wife and kids, watching TV or whatever... then you hear what sounds like a gunshot (probably a near by car backfiring... but you hear it multiple times and now there is no question that it is gunshots.)
You're stunned and look out the window... there is a man who you never seen before, run up to your yard, banging on the door... saying 'let me in, they are coming!"
What do you do? He has been hit, and he is bleeding badly.
If you especially live in an urban environment, I would say something like this is more likely to happen. When I was around 15, this same thing happened when my mom was home around 8pm (and my dad was at work), it was the neighbor who was shouting "LET ME IN, THEY ARE GOING TO KILL ME." I was doing my home work, I never remember hearing the gunshots, but the next door boy was shot in the belly by a .38special... and he was going to die if left there. What do you think my mother did first (she is also a medical doctor.)?
She looked out side so see if anyone else was there, and even though you could hear the fear in this kid's voice (he was about my age), my mom's PRIMARY concern was her own safety along with the safety of the family... he was probably out there for almost a minute. My mother not only let him inside after accessing the situation, but she had to leave to drive him to the hospital (no respectable EMS exists in Jamaica, your on your own on many fronts, especially when it comes to a 911 type system and police).
Any how, the guy survived... turns out that he found the smuggled guns he's drug dealing dad hid in the house, and after messing with them, they needed to be fixed, he called up some people who deal with illegal arms... they figured they could simply kill him and his bother rather to fix them (people killed over legal and illegal guns all the time down there, printing and OC = death sentence literally.)
Figured I would ask you guys about what you would do under this situation, except in my scenario here, the man banging on the door with the gunshot wound is a complete stranger, not a friend or someone you have ever seen in your community.
