CA: Bluff with Unloaded Shotgun Fails
Within two minutes, police were on scene and found a male resident suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest. At first officers thought the victim returned fire, but it was later determined that wasn't the case.
"He did point the gun at the suspect with an intention to protect himself and his wife, but the shotgun was unloaded," said San Leandro Police Lt. Mike Sobek.
"I know he had a gun in his bedroom because he told me if somebody comes in my door I'm going to shoot first and talk later," said Gavello.
Police believe the suspects shot the victim after he pointed the unloaded shotgun at them.
