A Florida man has been arrested by deputies after two concealed carry permit holders stopped him from escaping by holding him at gunpoint after he allegedly shot two women.
Florida police say Lee David Wilkerson, 38, was standing outside the Bingo Paradise bingo hall in Pensacola, Fla., on Wednesday when two women tried to enter and an argument ensued, according to a Facebook post from the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.
When Wilkerson tried to go back into the building, two citizens with concealed guns drew those guns and held him at the scene until police arrived.
Wilkerson allegedly pulled a gun from his side and hit one of the women in the head with it before firing in their direction as they tried to run away.
Wilkerson, who police say was carrying methamphetamine at the time, then allegedly threw his gun into a nearby dumpster.
