Knife Fight Stopped By Concealed-Carry Holder With Gun

posted on February 16, 2017

They say never bring a knife to a gunfight. But it turns out that a gun can also put a quick ending to a knife fight.

Topeka Police tell WIBW-TV that two men got into an argument in a Wal-Mart parking lot late Saturday afternoon, then one of the men pulled a knife and stabbed the other. The stabbed man then ran after the knife-wielding suspect with a baseball bat.

Seeing the commotion, another individual—who had a concealed-carry permit—quickly drew his gun and approached the scene.

TPD Sergeant Joshua Klamm said, “He intervened, drew his firearm, and held the people to the ground basically at gunpoint.” When police and EMTs arrived, the wounded man was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Investigators say the two men evidently knew each other and both were taken into custody for aggravated battery. The CCP holder was questioned by police, but was released a short time later.
