    Bainbridge police: Suspected home intruder shot by bystander

    A very interesting turn of events....

    The intruder then left the property, still in possession of the knife, and was observed by at least one neighbor before turning onto the 500 block of Wood Avenue, police say. At that point, the suspect reportedly approached a man in a car who was in possession of a handgun. Police say the man with the gun shot the suspect three times in the lower body and was holding the suspect at gunpoint when officers arrived.

    Sounds like a tough neighborhood for criminals to be in. Hopefully the word gets around that the citizens there defend themselves and potential criminals get the message.

    But, he only had a knife. The previous homeowner scared him off with a claw hammer. He certainly didn't need to be shot, much less shot three times. Thus the police investigation and the word alleged in front of shooter.

    As more information trickles out, seems the Shooter is a Law Abiding Citizen that was only seconds away not minutes and was pulled over working with his GPS when approached by the yelling knife carrying idiot.
    I would say it was his lucky day, that he lived as he was hit all 3 rounds fired in self defense.

    According to police, the suspect fled the home and began yelling at a man in a car, who happened to be lost and pulled over on the road to use his GPS device. The driver also happened to be armed with a gun, which police said he was legally allowed to posses.

    Police said the suspect moved closed to the vehicle, and the driver fired three rounds, hitting the suspect.

    See! See! This is another reason to just use maps, and plan your route before you leave. To hell with GPS. It can get you into lethal force encounters!

    Officers said the man who shot the suspect will not be charged because he acted in self defense.
    Having seen/been involved in 2 different carjackings, this is not a surprising outcome.

    The title is a bit misleading...the guy was obviously shot in an attempted carjacking, not because of the attempted home invasion.

    One shot a bit higher would probably have been sufficent.

    Oh God, do I love where I live....

    Take away my GPS? Only when they can rip it from my cold, dead hands.
    Which won't be easy, because I'm armed when driving!

    Do we know that the "shooter" wasn't Open Carrying? He certainly was at the point he shot the person.

    This web site is focused on the right to openly carry properly holstered handguns in daily American life.
    Ahem, ahem. We do not know the shooters method of "carry", only that the weapon was fired 3 times. You cannot assume and use the unknown as a valid reason.


    Been harassed by the police? Yelled at by the anti-gun neighbors? Mother doesn't approve?

    Ummm...if it gets to that point, they'll just shut off the satellites, or degrade the signals.

    You'll be back to map-reading so fast, your compass needle will blur.

    Assuming that those who have become GPS dependent even have a compass, know how to use one if they did, or for that matter the same for maps.

    Soon after all the batteries go dead, the bugs take over.

    LOL, nope. Nearly 20 years ago, I chased a shoplifter out of my store across a parking lot and caught him. He wiggled out of his jacket and pulled a knife on me. I backed away and he ran to the intersection and carjacked a car. He was caught the next day...trying to shoplift from another store.

    A few years ago, a bum, approached my car for money at a highway off ramp. I declined and he got belligerent while trying to get into my car. I pulled out my car gun from the console and laid it on my lap. He decided he had better things to do....

    All sounds legitimate but Bainbridge being what it is and western Washington being what it is I'm hoping the shooter dose not get int trouble. I grew up on Bainbridge back before the yupies took over completely and go back once and a while, the word gun is like saying the word snow in the winter, people freak!

    Oh my! Isn't that against Company Policy (at least most Companies)? Or did you own the Store?

    "Nearly 20 years ago...." It was not against policy at that time. I was trained in shoplifting detention and the 5 elements to make an arrest. Authorized to use force, apply handcuffs, etc.... No, I did not own the store, I was 19 and it was with Safeway.

    I worked part time for a retail company right after I retired. We were explicitly told to "Not challenge Shoplifters" and above all, "Never Leave the Store and follow". It was amazing, as that one Store lost almost $100,000 per year in theft and the policy was "Let it go".

    Amazing
