    Good: Driver Runs Over Masked Gunman Pointing Shotgun at Him

    Good use of car agains a gun in L.A.

    photo of crew attempt to free

    The alleged gunman who was run over was hospitalized in stable condition before being booked, and the driver was considered a victim and was not arrested, Lt. Tim Carr of the sheriff's East Los Angeles Station said....

    "The victim drove into his driveway and saw the suspect pointing a shotgun at him," Carr said. "The victim fearing for his safety accelerated his vehicle striking the suspect. After the collision, the suspect was pinned under the vehicle."

    The driver's sport utility vehicle went up on a sidewalk, through a fence and ended up in a yard with the alleged gunman underneath the vehicle, witnesses told a news video cameraman.
    Weird that the driver ran away. Adrenalin, I guess. Good that he was not arrested.

    I like to see dirtbags have that 'run down' feeling.

    Thats good news. Strange occurence though. Sounds like there is more going on than we know about. But always glad to see the BG get busted up.

    My guess would be some kind of gang activity. That location is only a few blocks from Obregon Park.

    2000 pound car is equal to 14,000,000 grain projectile,I drive a jeep,I need to think about my vehicle and reduce the ground clearance so if I run him over he's staying put

    That's what I call street justice (or shall I say driveway justice). Who needs a gun in East Los Angeles?

    Just pin him under a tire.

    Yes but, was it the ELE version or the XLS version?

    The added trim in the XLS version increases the number of grains, all while giving a smoother ride due to the better suspension.

    Good thinking there (or automatic reaction?). Anyway, better than freezing. It's easy to forget that when driving, your most effective weapon is right under your right foot in many cases.

    Cool

    Keep pulling forward and backing up until whatever debris is caught under your vehicle is dislodged.

    Like glockman says there is more to this then the news story is telling. Guantes is on the right track in my opinion.

    Of all the planning the BG did looks like getting pinned under a car wasn't on the list. :):):)

    The Bg was very fortunate that it was a driveway. I handled an adversarious incident where an individual got run over and trapped in the front wheel well and drug for a couple blocks. I assure you, it was not a pretty sight, ashpalt makes excellent sandpaper.
