No one ever said a BG was smart. He puts the gun down to use his cell phone and the victim grabs the gun kills one, shoots the passenger and makes the driver stop the vehicle. He's one lucky guy that took charge of the situation.

I read about this last night on the local news! Props to the victim for see an opportunity and taking advantage. In a gun fight doesn't matter how you won just matters that you won.

Thank God I'm alive!

I'm not. Now why would he do that? Seriously though, it was the victim's situational awareness coupled with the BG's inattention to what was going on around him that resulted in this outcome.
