Concealed Carrier Intervenes In Parking Lot Altercation Involving Knives And Baseball Bats — Lives Saved And No Shots Fired!
TOPEKA, KANSAS — In the parking lot of a local Walmart, two men got into a physical altercation involving bats and knives.
A concealed carrier saw the fight and broke it up by drawing his pistol and holding them at gunpoint until police could arrive. The two men are believed to have known one another prior to the fight and one of them was bleeding from stab wounds. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment of his wounds.
According to WIBW News, the concealed carrier was questioned and released. No charges are pending against him. Both of the men involved in the melee, though, were charged with aggravated battery towards one another. The one suspect that went to the hospital has since been released.
This is one of those insane happenings that it’s hard to tell if the concealed carrier truly did anything good for either of them. In any case, he definitely stopped the altercation from getting any worse. The sheer idiocy of getting into a fight in a Walmart parking lot suggests neither of these men likely learned a lesson but at least the concealed carrier ensured no one else would get pulled in or potentially hurt from trying to break up that sort of fight.
