Years ago I worked as a EMT/IV Tech on a ambulance in a sort of small city. I was single living in apt. I worked long hours and odd hours. People had been having their autos broken into a lot in this apt complex. It was a pretty nice place,nice stuff in cars. I woke up about 2:30 AM and walked out on the deck and smoked and looked over the parked cars. I saw someone across the parking lot stumbling around,holding his stomach. I thought he looked like he was hurt. Then he fell beside a car and into a concrete barrier. He did not seem to be able to get up. I did not want to check on him but I was concerned he was hurt,so I started easing around to where he was. He was still down. I came up on him from the other side of the car,all the time asking if he was OK. Do you need help? All that stuff and he is still struggling to get up and did not answer.I was by now right across the trunk part of the car and he began to get up. Parking lot is lighted and I have a flashlight. I keep asking if he is OK,no answer. He stands up and has blood running down his face. He also has blood on his shirt. He won't answer me and keeps messing with his waistband,pulling at his shirt tail and messing around when I see he has something in his waistband of his jeans. I have a pistol in my back pocket and now reach around and get hold of it,while asking over and over what he is doing. Is he hurt bad or what. I see that he is pulling something out of his waistband and I see the glint of a revolver barrel. I am now saying stop what you are doing and answer me. No answer. I think if he points the revolver at me I am going to have to shoot him. He comes right on out with the pistol and points it toward me. I am 1/2 second from shooting when I see he is trying to hand me a long neck beer. Just now the cop who I called before going into the parking lot shows up. The guy is drunk,got kicked out by his friends,and was planning to drive home. I check his head,not bad,let the cop deal with him and never tell this story till now. Have always been real glad I did not shoot.
