CAPE CORAL, FL — One armed thug is lucky to be alive after threatening the wrong people with a gun and getting a very loud and defensive response, WINK reports.
Instead of accomplishing whatever he was looking to do — scaring folks into submission one way or the other — he ended up with multiple bullet wounds and a lovely late afternoon trip to the hospital.
As WINK reports:
Police say Kevin Bruzos, a convicted felon, was shot multiple times. An investigation revealed he had threatened two people with a firearm. In response, one of those individuals shot Bruzos with his own weapon when Bruzos refused to put his gun down. The person who shot him had a concealed carry permit.
Bruzos is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. The concealed carry permit holder who was threatened by Bruzos and shot him in self-defense is not facing any charges.
USA Today also noted that Bruzos had been previously convicted of “third-degree battery, drug possession and criminal mischief.”
Now, he’s behind bars for (hopefully) a long, long time.
Sometimes, what someone who doesn’t own a gun needs more than anything else is a good guy with a gun.
