An evening of bingo in Pensacola, Fla., took a strange twist on Jan. 4. Two women attempted to walk up to the doors of the bingo hall, seeking jumper cables to help start one of their vehicles. The women noticed a man and woman standing outside of the business and asked them about jumper cables. The couple responded negatively, and when the victims tried to go around the couple to enter the building, the woman who’d been standing outside attacked one of them. At this point, the man drew a handgun and allegedly hit one of the women on the left side of the head. He then reportedly pointed the firearm at the women and started firing in their direction as they were trying to run away. One of the victims ran back to her vehicle and left the scene. The other woman was able to run into the building. When the assailant attempted to follow her into the bingo hall, however, two armed citizens were able to stop his attack and hold him at gunpoint until deputies arrived. The suspect was booked and held on a $156,000 bond. (, Pensacola, Fla., 1/4/23)
