Gee, Do You Think?

A reader sent a tip to The Armed Citizen concerning a news story that did not explicitly call this self-defense--but you read the story, and tell me what you think.  From the June 15, 2010 Virginian-Pilot:

Police are investigating a triple shooting that left two men dead and wounded a teenager.

The shooting occurred late Monday night in the 400 block of Chapel St., according to Cpl. Paula Scheck, a spokeswoman for Hampton police. Investigators have learned that a resident of the home and two acquaintances were sitting inside a detached garage about 10:30 p.m. when three men wearing masks walked up with handguns.

Gunfire erupted and two of the masked men were shot. One of them suffered several gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead inside the garage, police said this morning. The other was pronounced dead about 12:30 a.m. at a hospital.
Three men wearing masks approach me carrying handguns, and my first assumption is not: "Fellas, did you get bum directions to the Lone Ranger Lookalike Competition?  And where's Tonto?"

  1. There is probably a lot more to this story than has been reported. Robbery, we can assume, was on someone's mind here. But of who, by whom, will make an interesting story.

    The phrase, "Was well known to the police" is going to be used several times as this story unfolds.
