Two men shot by Washington Park business owner during attempted burglary, police said

Two men were shot by the owner of a Washington Park salvage yard early Tuesday when they tried to burglarize the business, police said. One of the men died.

The dead man was identified as Darnel R. Gully of the 700 block of N. 71st Street in East St. Louis, according to St. Clair County Coroner Calvin Dye Sr.

Gully was pronounced dead at the scene at 7:53 a.m. in the 1900 block of Kingshighway, Dye said.

“We are in the early stages of a police investigation,” Bonds said.

Here’s what police have learned so far:

“Sometime between 1:30 a.m. and 3:30 a.m., two men hopped the fence of a salvage yard in the 1800 block of Kingshighway,” Bonds said. “The owner was at the business and started shooting when the men hopped over his fence. He struck both of them, but didn’t know he did.

“Both suspects ran and hopped over the fence to get out. One ran one way and the other fell the other way,” Bonds said.

    Happy Trifecta Hump Day to our miscreanted d’weeded Brother Wilted Willy. This one’s for you. Winning keeps us grinning.

    That little Wilson is just darling cute. Again, they all want to try and compare to the works of his most Saintliness, John Moses Browning (Howitzer be his name), “reminiscent of the 1911”, “grips like the 1911”, “trigger pull like the 1911”. Rest easy JMB, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. FTA, “Who needs a $2900 pistol?” All of God’s children needs every kind of pistol they can get, including overpriced miniature clones of the 1911. Please turn in the Book, you know the Chapter, you know the Verse.

    “Dying ain’t much of a living, Boy.” If you don’t know where that is from, then you just need to get off our lawn.

      Missed one of my favorites, too. “Fill your hands you sonofabitch!” another from The Duke in “True Grit.”

      I know what you’re thinking. ‘Did he fire six shots or only five’? Well to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, i kind of lost track myself. But being that this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well do ya, punk?

    “Mister, you better find another line of work. This ‘un sure doesn’t fit your pistol.”

    And on a never-let-a-crisis-go-to-waste note, Champaign IL just passed a measure allowing the mayor to suspend any or all transfers of any firearms or ammunition in any transaction, commercial or private.

    • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman says:

      So? Are the guns publicly registered (to you) (outside of the ATF Form 4473)? If not, just have a “private sales” between two sovereign citizens, none of Teh Gooberment’s biznezz. If you want to keep a private Bill of Sale, “just in case”, but tucked away, never to see the light of day, that’s fine too.

      As I learned from re-enlistment duty, there’s always a way around everything.

      Been said before, “He (Hiz Honor Teh Mayor) has made his decision, now let him enforce it.”
