A hooded punk found himself in a firefight for his life, followed by a quick trip to the hospital, after allegedly trying to rob two men outside of a convenience store.
Surveillance cameras were recording when the suspect, 29-year-old Sanchez Quinn, approached two men at a Super X Market.
Quinn can be seen wielding a firearm, and pointing it in the two men’s direction.
However, what Quinn did not seem to anticipate was that one of the men, who has yet to be identified, was in possession of a pistol and a concealed pistol license (CPL). The licensed gun owner spoke to Fox 2 over the phone,
“I turned and looked and saw the other gentleman had a gun pointed at my face. I was able to knock his hand down and the gunfire rang out.”
It all happened in a matter of seconds, but the CPL holder was able to deflect the firearm that was aimed at him and withdraw his own weapon in a seemingly fluent motion.
Quinn was shot multiple times as a result of the ensuing gunfight, but the CPL holder was able to avoid injury.
The third man involved, who was the cousin of the CPL holder, was hit multiple times by crossfire when he ran between the two men firing their guns at each other.
Both the cousin and the suspect, Sanchez Quinn, are expected to recover.
When Quinn’s mother, Cynthia Quinn, heard that her son was in the hospital for gunshot injuries, she immediately rushed to the hospital.
“All I want to do is see my son. To see if he [is] all right and see if he [is] dead or alive.”
However, because her son was under arrest as a suspect in an attempted robbery, the police were reportedly not allowing visitors.
“When I went to my son[‘s] room, I was stopped by two police officer[s] [who] told me, ‘Why is you here? You can not be here.’”
This is yet another example of how responsible citizens, who are utilizing their constitutional right to carry firearms for self-defense, are able to stop criminals in their tracks.
Authorities told Fox 2 that it was a good thing that the CPL holder was armed, or he might not be alive today.
