A man in a Flagstaff, Arizona, Sam's Club parking lot was held at gunpoint by another man who was apparently high on meth. The victim was able to convince the gunman to put away the gun and leave peaceably.
The gun was later determined to be a realistic-looking BB gun.
From an article:
A 22-year-old man told police he didn't know it was a BB gun when a man pulled a gun on him in the Sam's Club parking lot last week. According to a police report, the suspect was riding his skateboard when he jumped off, produced a gun and said "I hate to do this to you, but meth makes you do crazy things." The victim told police he debated trying to grab the gun away, believing the man was going to kill him. The suspect appeared to be high on meth and was constantly fidgeting, he said. The man pointed the gun at the victim's chest, as well as his own chest, but never demanded anything. Eventually, the suspect gave him the gun, he told police. The victim put the gun in his waistband and talked to the man about "life" for about 40 minutes. The victim was a former meth addict and talked to the man about Christianity, the report said. Eventually, the two hugged, said "God bless" and went their separate ways. The man later called police and gave them his description, but said he didn't want to get the suspect in any more trouble than he was already in. Police collected the gun from the man and determined it was a BB gun, but an officer said you wouldn't have known it wasn't real unless you manipulated it.Walmart. Save money. Die faster.
