    GOOD: Man Prevents Further Attacks On Himself By Drawing Weapon - Brookings, OR

    Gold Beach, Oregon - News and Visitor Information

    The Brookings Police Department hasn't gotten much sleep in the past 24 hours, as a Brookings man drew a gun on multiple individuals on Monday. In a series of recent incidents, Brookings Police Officers have arrested twelve individuals in multiple cases.

    On 05-12-08 at about 7:25 p.m., Officers were dispatched to McDonald's restaurant, 815 Chetco Avenue in Brookings, Oregon for a report of a fight between multiple subjects. While in-route to the call, officers were notified one of the individuals involved in the fight was waving a gun.

    Police officers arrived on the scene less than one minute later and found Kerry Von Pohle (9/18/1948) pointing a revolver towards Kevin Eber (10/7/1989) and Jacob Shelton (9/5/1988). Officers drew their firearms and commanded Von Pohle to put his weapon down. Von Pohle complied with these commands. An investigation revealed Von Pohle had drawn his gun in self-defense.

    Kevin Eber had thrown a partially full beer can, striking Von Pohle's car. Von Pohle asked Eber why and Eber became violent, telling Von Pohle he was going to kill him. During that exchange, Shelton attacked Von Pohle, striking him with closed fists and slamming his head into a parked car.

    Von Pohle attempted to fend off the attack but realized Eber was closing in on him as well. Von Pohle drew his concealed 9mm revolver (for which he had a weapon permit) and pointed it at both subjects telling them if they came any closer he would shoot. The suspects stopped their advance. Von Pohle also had called 911 to notify police.

    Eber was arrested within minutes and lodged; Shelton had left the scene and was later arrested. Eber was charged with Menacing, and Disorderly Conduct, and Shelton was charged with Assault and Menacing. Both were lodged in the Curry County Jail. Von Pohle was not charged with a crime.
    Not the most experienced gun owner, but I have yet to see a 9mm revolver. My grandparents had some vacation property in Brookings, and I spent many a summer in this quiet seaside community.

    A 19 and 20 year old picking a fight with a 60 year old man?...They should have known better!
    The first time you aren't armed and prepared may be the last time you wished you were.

    Well Janq & Fmr18Z, like I said above, "I am not the most experienced gun owner". Learn something new everyday, I truly did not know that revolvers were chambered in 9mm.

    Got me there too.

    Another couple years of your average Jane and Joe citizen getting CC permits, the basic criminal and billy bad ass will either change careers, or change tactics.

    We might actually start seeing respect from the young ones again.
