Armed Florida Man Stops Son’s Sword Attack

posted on May 4, 2016

The old saying, “Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight,” apparently holds true even if you are a troubled young man trying to kill your father with a sword.

According to local media, a Navarre, Fla., man was confronted by his son, described in reports as “suffering from mental health and substance abuse issues.” When the son brandished an antique sword and threatened to kill him with it, the father shot him once in the shoulder with the intention of “winging” him to stop the attack.

Hit in the right shoulder, the son dropped the sword and ran to a nearby neighbor’s house for help. He was treated at a local hospital and was later booked into Santa Rosa County Jail, where he is being held without bond.
