Child custody exchange ends in gunfire at Orlando gas station

Chris Guardaro
ORLANDO, Fla. — A father fired a gun into a woman’s car out of self-defense during a family dispute in Orlando, police said.

Orlando police said a woman, her daughter and her sister met the girl’s father and his girlfriend to exchange custody of the girl in a Wawa parking lot.

Authorities said an argument broke out between the man’s girlfriend and the mother.

As the argument escalated between the pair, Britney Gunn, the mother’s sister, reached into the trunk of a car and came back with something. Authorities said the father believed the item was a gun and started shooting.

    Florida Woman comes to the fore today. Because equality.

    • KoB says:

      She brought a crowbar out so she could pry more money out of his wallet. He either showed his dumbassery or his knowledge that she MAY have wanted to shoot him.

      Think it might have been a Gunsmoke Episode I saw awhile back. Kid wanted to buy a revolver pistol but didn’t have much money. Gunsmith told him, “There’s a Colt Patterson over there I can let you have for $7.00.” Don’t think I’ve ever really seen one depicted in all of the Old Westerns that were based in their time frame.

        “There’s a Colt Patterson over there I can let you have for $7.00.”

        Nice catch. Apparently the writers knew some history.
        Don’t see that too often today.

      • Mustang Major says:

        KoB- You are showing your age. Crowbars for hub cap removal don’t come in car trunks these days. Bumper jacks are a thing of the past also. She might have been reaching for an aerosol tire inflation can.

  2. MI Ranger says:

    She said she was only getting a crowbar…because you know, she saw their car needed some fixin’!

    Glad that the father did not hit anyone, not sure if that was on purpose or not, since he would most certainly regret injuring or killing his daughters mother or grandmother…probably not so much the aunt!

    If Animal’s link to the person with the same name is in fact the same person, Ms. Gunn may have some anger issues that need to be worked out.

    • 26Limabeans says:

      Who doesn’t keep a crowbar in the trunk?

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

        That’s where I usually keep mine……..in the trunk. And I bring it out ONLY when I’m broke down somewhere and I need to fix the car. I DON’T bring it out where it may be mistaken for a threat.
        Dumbass woman.

        • David says:

          And what sort of roadside repairs require a crowbar? Prying a fender off a tire? Hard to believe someone would plan for that.

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

            Never know. Carry it “just because in case”. Doesn’t weigh much, doesn’t take a lot of space.

          • gitarcarver says:

            I keep one as well.

            With many tire shops not using torque wrenches or extensions to install tires, the crowbar is longer and allows more torque to take off lugnuts in the event of a flat.

            • 26Limabeans says:

              I have never seen a crowbar that could remove lug nuts. I think you are referring to a jack handle which most vehicles have.
              A crowbar is an entirely different tool.

              • KoB says:

                Are Pigeons allowed to go into a crow bar? Is using the term “crowbar” RAAYYYCCISSS because they’re black. Can a crowbar self identify as a prybar? Or as a tire tool? What about the jack handles that want to self identify as crowbars? Or tire tools? What kind of bars do Doves go to? Soap Bars? Are chickens, Robins, or Blue Birds being discriminated against because they don’t have a bar to call their own? We need to study this…appoint a committee! Apply for a federal grant! We must have Bars for all Birds! #BirdBarsMatter!

                Note to Mustang Major…yes, I have some age, right up their close to a good portion of our more miscreanted d’weeds. Plus I got high mileage. I also have a coupla of them old school 4 way lug wrenches that used to come in the trunk of them Classic Infernal Combustion Engined Horseless Carriages.

                • David says:

                  If you have a slightly more (ahem) social use in mind, instead of a crowbar carry an 18-24″ breakover bar along with the appropriate size socket for your lug nuts? Besides being intimidating if needed, it would make changing a spare much easier and no cop could object to it.

                • 26Limabeans says:

                  You could hurt yourself wielding one of
                  those four ways as a weapon.

              • rgr769 says:

                In most cases, the lug wrench doubles as the jack handle. I think Ms. Gunn has confused the lug wrench for a crowbar, which really has no motor vehicle application, except maybe smashing a windshield or a headlight. If one wants a useful bludgeon, there is nothing better than the good old Louisville Slugger.

                • 26Limabeans says:

                  I think the “Crow” part of the name
                  refers to the crowsfoot ends of the
                  bar that are used for pulling nails.
                  The curved end though makes for a pretty
                  good handle while poking someone’s face.

  3. E4 Mafia '83-'87 says:

    I think its poor planning on Dad. The reason you exchange kids in a “neutral” location is to avoid being on someone’s “turf” and the hope is public the exchange will be quick & quiet. Now dad brings his new girl…not smart. We all know “womxn” hate each other, but they especially hate each other when it comes to dealing with an ex-. Dude, next time leave the young chippy at home.

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

      The E4 Mafia speaks wisdom.

    Barbara “Gunn”……….I’m hearing the Peter Gunn theme music here. Don’t need a detective to know someone is a bubble off plumb.

  5. John Seabee says:

    Ahhhhh yes. The Sector 3 combat zone. [Raleigh St] Only got a ‘crowbar’??? Did she think she was ‘The Trunk Monkey?”
