A Domino’s Pizza driver was ambushed at gunpoint by two teens in Mesquite, Texas, on Saturday night.
According to reports, Wayne Osbrone, 16, and his accomplice, phoned in a fake order to an abandoned house near the Mesquite airport.
When David Gerber showed up, the teens fired their gun, missing him. At that point, the driver, who is a veteran, grabbed his own gun and shot Osbrone.
Osborne later died from his wounds, while his accomplice was arrested on aggravated robbery charges.
Liberals complained, saying that the driver was illegally carrying a firearm, but it has since been revealed that he held a concealed carry permit from Arizona.
“He’s not going to catch any charges regarding unlawful carrying of weapon,” stated Mesquite Police spokesman Lt. Brian Parrish. “We’re not the end-all, be-all when it comes to making this decision — the grand jury is. So we send it to the grand jury, and that group of independent people come to their own conclusion.”
Gerber served in the Air Force and was medically discharged in 2001. He works as a pizza delivery driver on the side to help support his family.
“I see it over and over again in my head again, a lot,” Gerber said of the incident in an exclusive interview with the station. “I got to see my wife and my son. With this kid, he’s not. I just can’t imagine what this kid, what his mom’s going through.”
“This young man stepped out into the doorway, there was no lights on in the house, stepped out in the doorway with a gun to my face. He said give me everything,” Gerber recalled. “The guy with the gun shot like that. At that point it became perfectly clear the next one he shot was going to be me.”
It’s tragic that a life was lost, but the two teens were asking for it when they tried to rob someone at gunpoint.
Gerber didn’t ask for any of this. He fought for his survival, and because of his experience and training, he won. He doesn’t deserve to be criminally charged for defending himself.
