NC: Resident Disarms Suspect, Runs, is Held at Gunpoint by Neighbor
“After a brief altercation, Torres was able to wrestle away the firearm from one of the suspects then fled on foot. Torres, fearing for his life and fearing that the suspects may be chasing him, ran through the neighborhood seeking help from residents,” Smith stated.
That included knocking on doors and windows on North Pine Street, about a mile from the Lucas Road address.
“All they saw was a guy with a gun,” Smith said of the homeowners. “They contacted 911 and deputies responded. Shots were fired, but it is unknown at this time who fired the shots. Property was damaged, but not as a result of shots being fired. Mr. Williams held (Torres) at gunpoint until authorities arrived and could sort the situation out.”
