Real Gun Beats Fake Gun

posted on June 12, 2015

Two teens ambushed a Tampa, Fla., couple as they were walking back to their vehicle after dining at an area restaurant. They pointed a gun at the couple and demanded their cash and cell phones. 

The couple complied initially, but when the woman attempted to escape back to the restaurant, 17-year-old Reginald Smith turned his gun on her. At that point, her male companion—in fear for her safety—drew his own handgun and shot Smith in the leg.  

The other teen, 17-year-old Jeremiah Walker, dropped the stolen goods and fled. Smith was unable to flee and was taken into custody, where it was discovered that his gun was a fake. Walker turned himself in shortly thereafter, and both teens are now facing felony armed robbery charges.
