    A man who pulled a samurai-style sword during an altercation in a Northeast Heights parking lot Monday night is in critical condition with multiple gunshot wounds to his torso.

    A woman who had just bought hamburgers from a fast-food restaurant at the shopping center at Candelaria and Eubank at about 8:30 Monday evening told Eyewitness News 4 that her departure was blocked when three men began arguing in front of her.

    She says one man, who was wheeling groceries to his car, was confronted by two men who emerged from a pickup truck. She said after the two men turned to leave, the man with the groceries opened up his car trunk, pulled out a samurai-style sword, and turned toward the other men.

    One of the men from the pickup, according to the witness, then calmly pulled a revolver from his pants and shot the sword wielding man, who fell to the ground, but managed to pull himself up and make his way to the grocery store for help, leaving his sword in the parking lot.

    The woman says that she backed up her car to allow the men in the pickup room to drive away and they sped westbound on Candelaria.

    Police describe the suspects in the shooting as two Hispanic men driving a blue-green, early to mid-1990s F-150 Ford pickup.

    Officials say that the shooting victim was hit multiple times in the stomach and was taken to a local hospital where he was admitted in critical condition.

    The name of the shooting victim was not available as of early Tuesday morning.

    are they in trouble for leaving the scene? It sounds like they were just defending themselves. I would have done the same thing (except I would have called the cops and stayed there)

    I'm sure that if they were carrying illegally they'd be in deep shit . They were probably either illegal or ghetto thugs with some kind of record.

    Why are they calling his the "victim"!? :rant2:

    Sounds to me like the shooter was trying to remove himself from the situation, but couldn't because he was about to be attacked.

    Then the cops wouldn't have evidence that the shooting was justified. You can't count on an innocent bystanders testimony in a situation like that. Then again they'll probably never find the guys. They were smart enough to use a revolver so it would be hard to prove it was them, anyway :mamoru:.

    The thread title reminds me of that scene in Punisher when it looks like hes down for the count and he pulls out his swithcblade that he modified to fire the blade out.

    That scene is so cool
