COLLEGE PARK, Ga. -- "A group of college students said they are lucky to be alive and they’re thanking the quick-thinking of one of their own. Police said a fellow student shot and killed one of two masked me who burst into an apartment.
Channel 2 Action News reporter Tom Jones met with one of the students to talk about the incident.“Apparently, his intent was to rape and murder us all,” said student Charles Bailey.
“They just came in and separated the men from the women and said, ‘Give me your wallets and cell phones,’” said George Williams of the College Park Police Department.Bailey said the gunmen started counting bullets.
“The other guy asked how many (bullets) he had. He said he had enough,” said Bailey.That’s when one student grabbed a gun out of a backpack and shot at the invader who was watching the men. The gunman ran out of the apartment.
The student then ran to the room where the second gunman, identified by police as 23-year-old Calvin Lavant, was holding the women.“Apparently the guy was getting ready to rape his girlfriend. So he told the girls to get down and he started shooting. The guy jumped out of the window,” said Bailey."
Luckily, this happened in Georgia and not some dirty place like New York, or California where there would be protests galore to canonize the dead thug while at the same time demonizing the hero who saved the day. And here's a tidbit from the comment section that deserves notice:
"This calls for a new bumper sticker. "My C average student wasted your thug-ass kid while breaking and entering."
