Default Police: Robbery suspect loses 'bet' that victim doesn't have a gun

http://www.msnewsnow.com/story/25827893/shooting-victim-drives-to-jackson-apartment-complex

Quote:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - A man with a gunshot wound was reported, Friday morning, at an apartment complex called the Pines on Watkins Drive; but he wasn't shot there.
Jackson police say, shortly before that, a guest at a nearby Motel 6 had a run in with the man in the rear parking lot.
They say the guest was approached by a man asking for cigarettes.
The hotel guest said he didn't have any cigarettes.
The man began to walk away, when Officer Colendula Green said, "At that time the complainant advised he didn't. As the unknown male proceeded to turn around he turned back towards the complainant advising the complainant "I bet you don't have one of these", pointing a gun in his direction. At that point the complainant pulled out his weapon and began firing shots."


"I bet you don't have one of these."
Doh!

I'm sorry, but I laughed my butt off.

What I don't like about that story is "the shooting victim" was the criminal who pulled the gun first. It should read "the criminal who was shot".
