NRA Member Detains Suspect In Police Manhunt

posted on April 25, 2016

When a car fled a routine traffic stop outside Gaston, S.C., it was the start of a high-speed chase that went on for roughly 10 miles. Sheriff’s deputies eventually punctured the car’s tires and caused it to crash; while a passenger remained in the car and was handcuffed, the driver evaded pursuit on foot. But he made a mistake by fleeing onto the property of a gun owner.

According to WYFF, the nearby homeowner had been informed that there was a manhunt in progress when he spotted the suspect on his land. The armed citizen, who reportedly holds a concealed-carry permit and is an NRA member, confronted the suspect and detained him at gunpoint until authorities arrived. “I just knew I wanted to get him in a place that he couldn’t run and he couldn’t come at me or my wife,” said the homeowner. Deputies acknowledged that the armed citizen’s intervention sped the arrest of the suspect.
