    Exclusive: Father speaks about shooting man who allegedly put a gun to his daughter’s head


    [​IMG]

    SOUTH ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – One suspect is dead and another is in critical condition after allegedly holding a gun to a teen’s head. Police are not saying if they believe this crime was random or targeted. The man who pulled the trigger tells FOX 2 he does not live here with his daughter and her mom and he says he doesn’t know why the two men came to the door.

    Police say it began with two men approaching a seventeen year old girl in the street, taking her at gunpoint, and forcing her into her home on Newport near Neosho in the Bevo Mill neighborhood. The girl’s father shot and killed one suspect and injured the other.

    It was about 11pm Monday when a 17 year old girl who lives in the home was getting something from her car. Two men, both with guns, grabbed her. The began to push her back into the home with a gun to her head. Her father, who says he was visiting the girl and her mother, saw the gunmen and pulled his own weapon. He says he had no choice but to fire.
    “He was holding her hostage. She was a human shield. So I did what I had to do.”

    Asked how he had the confidence to pull the trigger when the man was holding his daughter that way, he said, “It wasn’t like that. It just happened. I didn’t have no choice. He had my daughter so I did what I had to do.”
    The father asked that we not use his name.

    The man he shot and killed was Terrell Johnson, 31, of St. Louis. The second suspect, who the father says was wearing a mask, is Cortez McClinton, 33, also of St. Louis.
    The bullets didn’t just hit the two men. Another one went all the way across the street, into the home of Jessica Swartz.
    “I was freaked out. For lack of a better word, yeah, scared,” she said. “Just laying in bed watching TV getting ready to go to sleep. Then I hear the gunshots and heard glass break, felt debris, jumped to the other side of my bed and waited for it to stop. Then called 911.”

    The father expressed concern over a bullet hitting a neighbors home.

    “I didn’t mean for anybody to be involved in anything. I didn’t have any choice in the matter. I’m sorry for what happened to that lady’s window.”

    The reason why this topic is so heated is because libtards like me still believe in our god given rights as Americans.

    The reason why it angers me personally is that the all powerful NRA will never budge, and they are beholdened to the gun manufacturers who make billions on people being paranoid.

    I like how the article ends by saying the bullet went through the XXXXXers and into someone's house and not speculating on what probably would have happened if the dad wasn't armed.

    The very first thing a dictator does when he takes over in his country is to confiscate all of the guns from the citizens.

    I guess since we have the internet, television, radio, etc and not just printing presses we should restrict the first amendment too?
