A Miami man claimed he was forced to "empty" his Glock into a man's chest during a brazen robbery attempt Monday morning, when the attacker pointed an AK-47 into his face and demanded jewelry.
Donovan Stewart, 60, told the city’s CBS affiliate that he was sitting in his van when he was confronted. Stewart, an NRA member, said he was with his son, 11, and his girlfriend at the time. He told the station that he is originally from Jamaica and is trained at handling a firearm.
"I am not going to go out like a punk," he said. "So I emptied my Glock in his chest."
City police told the station that they are investigating, but said it appears to be a case of self-defense.
“You want to come looking for trouble?” Stewart said. “Come to me. Come to me. I wouldn’t do anything like this to anybody and they picked the wrong person in this case.”
A reporter for the CBS affiliate said an individual approached him and told him the now-deceased gunman had robbed him at gunpoint last weekend, in an incident that appeared similar to what Stewart described.
In that case, the individual was robbed of $600 and a 2018 Volkswagen, according to the report.
