Permit Holder Stops Attack On Mother And Child

posted on July 29, 2015

FOX 32 Chicago reports that a Cincinnati man with a gun in each hand fired upon a woman and her 1-year-old son, among others, until he was stopped by a concealed-carry permit holder.

The permit holder, Patrick Ewing, approached 62-year-old Thomas McCary as he was arguing with Ewing’s sister, Jeaneta Walker. McCary pulled a .38-caliber handgun and fired three shots at Ewing; Ewing returned fire with his own legal weapon, hitting McCary in the leg.

McCary retreated into his home, but quickly returned with a gun in each hand, firing several more rounds at Walker, her son and a third man. Ewing again engaged McCary to distract him as the intended victims fled indoors, and McCary was forced back into his apartment. 

McCary was later arrested at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center and booked on felony assault charges.
