    Ohio Concealed Carry Permit Holder Fires Back; UPDATE

    he 500 block of Boal Street is a beautiful piece of Mount Auburn in Cincinnati, Ohio, has breathtaking views. But last night, it was a scene right out of the wild west. An armed robbery turned into a shootout, with at least two people wounded, maybe more. Police say the robbery suspect picked a victim who was not only a soldier, but also had a concealed carry permit....and was armed.

    Local 12's Joe Webb says there are a lot of facts still missing from this story, including why were these guys on Boal Street at 11:30 last night, in a car, talking to guys on foot?

    The people who live around there have their suspicions. And they want them to move on before someone gets killed. Bill Coplen says he's never seen anything quite like he saw outside his house last night. He's got a flat tire from the shootout.

    "About the right size for a 9."

    This is what Boal Street looked like around 11:30 Thursday night. This guy is lying in the grass next to Coplen's car.

    "On Boal Street, off of Sycamore. ONE ON THE GROUND? Yes. WHERE'S THE PERSON THAT SHOT HIM? I don't know."

    Police think the guy on the ground and another guy confronted two men in this car. Shots were fired into the car, shooting out the back glass. Police say the, driver Marc Conyers, who told them he was employed by the US Army, returned fire. He has a concealed carry permit. Conyers was wounded in the arm. Police aren't sure if his passenger was hit. The neighbors want to know what everyone was doing on Boal Street in the first place.

    Doug Spitz, Prospect Hill Community Association: "They weren't asking for directions. You need to ask the people in the car what they were doing. They had no business being up here."

    Neighbors say the street is used to sell drugs and they see a lot of Kentucky plates at night. But they don't see gun violence very often. Today, volunteers from the Cincinnati Initiative to Reduce Violence were handing out fliers.

    Arthur Phelps, CIRV: "You got to touch people. You touch people, they change. Got to touch their brain. Right now, they think it's okay."

    The people on Boal Street don't think it's okay. After 18 years here, Bill Coplen is thinking and rethinking. His daughter and grandson live with him.

    Bill Coplen, Boal Street Resident: "I'm going to have to rethink now. I'm going to have to rethink. I'm lucky they were on vacation last night. I can't imagine my 4-year-old grandson walking out and getting caught in the crossfire with this."

    The robbery suspect who was shot in the abdomen suffered serious injuries and had surgery this morning.

    The driver of the car, we're told was treated and released for the wound to his forearm.

    The other robbery suspect is still on the loose.

    So far, no one has been charged with any crime following the shootout.

    Police say a K-9 unit helped them locate two handguns in a wooded area off Boal Street. We don't know if they were used in last night's crime.

    Here is a link to the story that includes a video. Concealed Carry Permit Holder Fires Back - :: Cincinnati news story :: LOCAL 12 WKRC-TV in Cincinnati

    The video does make better sense of the story.

    Well, regardless of what they were all doing on that street, the guy on the ground looked like he's thinking of a career change!

    So an Army soldier is out buying drugs with his weapon on him, and he is referred to as "victim" and "good guy". I don't think so.

    That's the most poorly written news article I've ever read. From what little I can decipher it doesn't sound like there were any good guys or victims, just four people out doing something they shouldn't have been and then one of them got pissed and it went downhill from there.

    I think we are reading the text from a local news video, so it reads funny.

    Pending more information. To me it sounds like a drug deal gone bad.

    Was the permit holder a soldier or an Army civilian employee? In my 24 years in the military I never heard anyone except civilian employees say they were employed by whatever branch they were associated with.

    I think the word you're looking for is "gist".

    gist 
    –noun
    1. the main or essential part of a matter: What was the gist of his speech?
    2. the ground of a legal action.

    —Synonyms
    1. essence, point, substance, burden, kernel, import.


    /Giz - not so much....

    I like the part where "500 block of Boal Street is a beautiful piece of Mount Auburn in Cincinnati, Ohio, has breathtaking views" -but- " Neighbors say the street is used to sell drugs " Sounds Lovely.

    "Police say the robbery suspect not only picked a victim that was a soldier...". As a former soldier, I can't wait till his Master Sgt gets to speak to him. I believe him to be ARNG or Reserve though, based on location.
