Jacksonville police shoot, kill man officers say came at them armed with knives Saturday morning

Teresa Stepzinski, Florida Times-Union
Police shot and killed a man that officers said was brandishing two knives at them as he came out of the bathroom of a home during a standoff in a Northwest Jacksonville neighborhood.

No officers were injured in the incident that began at about 4:30 a.m. Saturday in the 2000 block of Grunthal Street, Brian Kee, Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office chief of investigations, told reporters at the scene.

Bobby James Brown, 41, died, said the Sheriff’s Office, which released a photograph of two knives that officers said Brown had when he was shot.

It is the second fatal shooting involving Jacksonville police in eight days.

Apparently doubling the number on knives brought does not actually affect the outcome of the gunfight. Good to know.

Pasco deputy fatally shoots man during traffic stop

Juan Carlos Chavez, Tampa Bay Times
PORT RICHEY — A Pasco deputy killed a man early Saturday after authorities say the man tried to drive off, dragging the deputy.

According to Pasco Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Amanda Hunter, a deputy was conducting a traffic stop after a suspicious vehicle was reported at the Rodeway Inn in Port Richey on U.S. 19, just south of State Road 52.

The Sheriff’s Office did not identify the deputy, citing Marsy’s Law. Authorities said that as the deputy was approaching the car, the suspect ran away and the deputy followed for a few feet. The suspect then circled back to the car, authorities said, got in and tried to drive away while the deputy chased him. According to investigators, the deputy attempted to stop the man and the car, but was dragged approximately 150 feet in the parking lot of the Rodeway Inn.

At some point, the man reached for something under the driver’s seat, according to the Sheriff’s Office. The deputy fired approximately three shots at the man, who fell out of the car with the deputy.

Police: Woman shoots boy, 13, who was part of group that tried to break into her car, pointed gun at her in Hyde Park

CHICAGO (CBS) — Police said a woman shot and wounded a 13-year-old boy who was part of a group that tried to break into her car, and then pointed a gun at her, in Hyde Park Friday night.

At 7:58 p.m., four to five males were trying to break into a parked car in the 1100 block of East 52nd Street, police said.

The 34-year-old woman who owned the car confronted the would-be thieves, at which point one of them took out a gun and pointed it at her, police said.

The woman – who has a concealed carry license – fired her own gun and hit one of the would-be thieves, police said. The would-be thief, a 13-year-old boy, was struck in the neck and was taken to the University of Chicago’s Comer Children’s Hospital in fair condition.

I’ve heard of neck to neck but not neck to leg. Sounds like the femur artery that did him in.


Doubling the number of knives to a gun fight does double your chances of becoming DRT.

Those “gud bois” need to work on their victim selection skilz. And Ms Thang needs a little more range time.

Anybody think that we can successfully vote our way out of the socialism that we have been voted into?

Never bring a dumbass to a gun fight, especially if you are the dumbass.

A good knife, a strong hand, and knowledge:

Stab in.
Slash out hard.

The resultant wound from a four to six inch blade is often worse than anything you can produce with normal handguns.
