Fort Worth Armed Citizen Saves Friends, Newborn

posted on August 29, 2015

Six people—including a one-month-old baby—were together in a Fort Worth apartment on Tuesday when two men broke in around 1 p.m. and demanded “everything.” They recognized one of the men as 36-year-old Larry Chism, whom they’d been friends with until the week before, when Chism had pulled a 9 mm pistol on them. 

When the residents demanded the suspects leave, one of them did. Chism, however, refused to back down or leave. Fearing for the safety of his friends and the newbown, Blake Severin, 21, pulled out his gun and shot Chism in the chest and the shoulder, killing him. 

Fort Worth police are calling the incident a robbery-home invasion, and believe Severin acted in self-defense. No one else was hurt during the incident. Resident Brad White, the baby’s father, praised Severin’s actions. “My friend didn’t hesitate—he knew I had a baby in there and he shot (the robber),” White said.
