Bronx gunman shoots two men, one fatally — then shot in the head fighting over weapon with surviving victim

By KERRY BURKE, MORGAN CHITTUM, ROCCO PARASCANDOLA, JOHN ANNESE and LARRY MCSHANE
A murderous Bronx drug dealer settled his beef with a local deli by coldly executing a store worker and blasting its owner in the chest before taking a bullet to the head from his own gun during an ensuing brawl, police said Wednesday.

The grudge-holding gunman, Tykwan McLeod, 45, made a beeline toward deli worker Donte Thomas, 33, and opened fire at 8:45 p.m. Tuesday, cops said.

When the store’s owner heard the gunshots from outside the Mount Eden store, he charged back inside — and was shot in the chest before attacking McLeod, cops said.

The shooter’s gun went off as he waged a life-and-death battle with the bleeding 35-year-old owner, cops said. The boss somehow managed to turn McLeod’s gun on the killer and fired a shot — or the assailant’s gun simply went off as the two grappled.

Office employee shoots man during machete attack, Orlando police say
Officers: Man stabbed 2 employees

ORLANDO, Fla. – Orlando police officers were at a staffing business Tuesday after a man attacked two employees there with a machete. One of the employees took out a gun and shot the attacker, according to officers.

Police said it happened before 9:30 a.m. at Staff Zone on Old Winter Garden Road. The business is a day labor office and offers short-term employment.

Records show 31-year-old Oraine Mitchell Grant came into the business seemingly upset with a large knife, later identified as a machete. Grant argued with a woman and a man who worked there, then went to stab the employees, investigators said. Officers said as Grant was trying to lunge at the employees, one of the workers shot him.

UPDATE!
Vietnam vet, 82, fights off armed home intruder who attacked wife: cops
The intruder died Monday night from injuries sustained during the home invasion

By David Aaro | Fox News
A Vietnam veteran bludgeoned an armed home intruder with a shotgun on Monday after the suspect forced his way inside the South Carolina home and attacked his wife with a large knife, according to a report.

The suspect, identified as Harold Runnels, later died from his injuries.

“I started hitting him in the head with the barrel and I know I must have hit him at least ten times right in the face, just as hard as I could hit him,” Herbert Parrish, 82, said, according to FOX 57 of Columbia, S.C.

Runnels knocked on their back door at about 2 p.m. to ask Parrish’s wife if she had seen his white Chihuahua. At that point, he attacked her with the knife, according to the report.

Parrish said that he believed the suspect was going to kill them, so he decided to “do something quick and get the edge on him.”

No Score. Don’t fook with an old man. He’ll just kill you. Read the rest of the article here: Fox News

    ““Donte had problems when he was younger but he turned his life around. It shouldn’t matter now,” his mother, Kim Smalls, 51, told the News”

    wtf?

      Just a simple disagreement between these gentlemen as to who will be sitting next to Mz Bootycall BabyMama in night class at the Junior College. Or maybe, who’s gonna lead the choir in the singing of the Doxology.

      No matter how long the knife is…it is still just a knife. We’ve HAD this conversation before. Flu-ruh-duh man…*sigh*!

      That old man shuffling along at the mosey was once more of a badass than you’ll ever “Manage” to be in your PigPen. Bring it on punks, at our age, a life prison sentence is NOT a deterrent. I got something you can blow, hard!

      A most beautimous rendition of the designs brought forward by the Most Saintly JMB (Howitzer be his name). Proof that AW1Ed Loves us and wants us to be happy!

      Donte Thomas was the victim 26Limabeans, he kicked the Drug dealer out of the Deli earlier for being rude, but apparently did not take him serious when he said he would come back and “kill him”.

      He was actually trying to turn his life around. He was employed, raising his 12 year old daughter, and supposedly tying to teach the youth of the neighborhood not to follow in his footsteps (another neighbor said he convinced her son to graduate from high school).

    We gots us a three-fer in one story.
    First, it’s Florida Man. ‘Nuff said right there.
    Two, bringing a knife to a gun fight (I’d say something about dumb perps. but if they ever smartened up, we’d lose half our daily entertainment)
    Third, the name. “Oraine”. How does one even pronounce that? And where’s Claw with the Whiz Wheel? I hope he’s kept it properly PMCS’d and lubed. It’s going to get a workout today.
    Only slightly OT, the writing! “Seemingly upset with a large knife”. ROFLOL! What had the knife done to upset poor Mr Oraine? “Later identified as a machete”. Did the knife self-identify as a machete? Did it even WANT to be identified as a machete? What if the knife wanted to be identified as a Bowie?
    As for the store clerk that defended himself and his coworkers…..good shooting. But next time, take the One More Taxpayers Savings Shot. We’d all pitch in and send you the cost of the round.

  3. President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Domestic Violent Extremist says:

    And now, at the opposite end of the east coast, we have a drug dealer, Tykwan McLeod. Claw, yer up again!
    Too bad Mr McLeod wasn’t a baker, he could have had his own shop, “TyKwan Dough”.
    Thank you, thank you. I’ll see myself out now (ducks and runs for cover).

    “Vietnam vet, 82,”

    I hope to be able to hold that distinction 10 years from now.
    And still be able to handily whack an intruder with such vigor.
    I would not be surprised to learn that Vietnam vets outlive
    those who did not serve there or anywhere. The US Army gave
    me a case of the ass and to this day I can still wield it.
    Gotta be some stats on that somewhere.

  5. Claw says:

    Tykwan spins up a DAM/WRT score of 116 and Oraine (bet the name is pronounced like Oren or maybe O-ring) spins up a DAM/WRT score of 108.

    Both have a long way to go to beat the all time score of 814./s

  6. David says:

    Trying to figure out why if you have a functional firearm, you would HIT someone with the long skinny barrel instead of using it in a more convincing style? Only possible explanation is that he feared hitting the wife, but if you are close enough to club someone you should surely be in a position to aim selectively.

      Probably wasn’t loaded and no time to load it. So, he went into bayonet mode minus the actual bayonet. Make do or do without. Adapt ,overcome, improvise.
      He must have been a holy terror in his younger days.
      Don’t get in the way of his horizontal or vertical butt stroke. Especially his slash or jab! That man will mess you up!
