    Tennessee: Knife-Wielding Attacker Shot Dead

    Tennessee: Knife-Wielding Attacker Shot Dead

    Memphis, Tennessee

    From WREG of March 5, 2010

    Knife-Wielding Attacker Shot Dead
    Chaos erupted at a Family Dollar store when a man with a knife chased customers and was shot dead.
    Witnesses at the store near Delano and North Watkins say the attacker picked the wrong victim.
    “He got what he deserved,” says one woman. “It’s as simple as that.”

    Police say a man with a knife raced through the parking lot just after 3:00 p.m.. Witnesses say the man chased a delivery driver and others, but was killed when he tried to lunge his knife at one driver leaving the parking lot. The driver pulled a gun and killed his attacker on the spot.

    “I just seen him shoot down. I thought he was just shooting in the ground. Obviously, he was shooting the gentleman with the knife,” says Byron Cook who watched the ordeal from start to finish, along with his three year-old grandson.
    Witnesses say two little girls were inside the car when the attacker lunged at the driver.

    “He had his two step-daughters in the car with him. So, he really was trying to look out for them when he shot him,” says Brandon Jones, who says the girls appeared to be younger than ten. “Yeah, they saw everything that happened. One of them was real shaken.”
    Jones heard roughly six shots, then saw the man on the ground with the butcher knife still in hand. Witnesses can’t make sense of the attacker’s motive, but they’re certain the shooting was self-defense.

    “He did the right thing by taking care of his business,” says Jones. “The girls are safe.”
    “You’ve got to protect yourself,” says Cook. “He had his two kids in the car and they were terrified.”
    “Self defense,” says one woman. “That’s what I would have done, the same thing.”

    Witnesses say the shooter was stabbed, but appeared to be okay. Police have not released the name of the attacker.

    “ Jones heard roughly six shots … “ … He will absolutely not bring a knife to a gun fight anymore, or anything else for that matter

    I wonder why he was running around with a knife in the first place.

    The knife wielding man was probably high on something or off his meds.

    There is no excuse to threaten other folks with a knife, good shoot.

    The shooter shoot until the threat was no more, 6 shoots.

    Glad no innocent people were injured by the whacko.
    You see some strange folks at the dollar stores.

    Wow, look, another crazy person just takin' their stabbin' knife out stabbin' for the evening. Seems pretty normal to me.

    Hope the shooter will be ok (health wise, I'm sure he'll be fine legally). It also reinforces how quickly things can happen with a knife... they can close that distance fast.

    BTW this is an excellent example toward Matt Temkin's newly announced video from a few weeks ago; 'Shoot'em To The Ground!'.

    Literal.
