Scooter Salesman Shoots At Attackers

posted on December 2, 2015

A man was ambushed and pistol-whipped by two men pretending to be prospective buyers of his Hoverboard electric scooters in a Bellflower, Calif., supermarket parking lot Sunday night. The victim arranged to meet the two supposed buyers, whom he did not know, to sell them the Hoverboards. One of the two suspects pistol-whipped the back of the victim’s head while he was speaking with the other suspect, who then also pointed a handgun at him. The victim, an armed off-duty security guard, pulled out his own handgun and fired at both would-robbers. 

“Shots were fired (by both men) and one suspect was shot in the neck,” said Lt. Matthew Vander Horck of the sheriff’s Lakewood station. Police responded to the scene and took the 18-year-old wounded suspect into custody. The second suspect, who pistol-whipped the victim, fled the scene in a dark sedan after picking up his accomplice’s handgun. The perpetrator and victim were both transported to a nearby hospital.
