A concealed carry holder scared off a possible shooter outside of a restaurant in Naples, Florida on Wednesday, July 11. Wink News published a story about the incident on their site.
The incident happened outside of Jack’s Seafood Bar and Grill in Naples. That evening, the concealed carry holder, named Tom, had gone into Jack’s Seafood Bar and Grill for a beer. The incident happened while the concealed carry holder sat outside of Jack’s Seafood Bar and Grill drinking his beer.
Tom said, “I pulled into Jack’s, just walked in to grab a beer. Walked outside to sit down, and there was a table of ladies to the right of me. Almost immediately, this black Lincoln pulled up with all dark windows and he did a hell of a burnout.”
Tom added that the Lincoln pulled around and then stopped in front of him again. The window of the Lincoln then rolled down. The suspect pointed a gun outside of the window and towards Jack’s Seafood Bar and Grill.
“So I got behind the cement pillar and showed my pistol, and he took off out of there really quick,” Tom said.
Deputies identified the potential shooter as 55-year-old Keith Zavattaro. Authorities said that Zavattaro put up a fight when deputies went to his residence to arrest him. Although they couldn’t find a gun, deputies did say that they will charge Zavattaro with battery on a law enforcement officer.
Zavattaro is a regular to Jack’s Seafood Bar and Grill. He had been kicked out of the bar earlier that day.
In regards to the incident, Tom said, “I just know it is a crazy world. You never figure it’s going to happen to you, but it happened last night.”
Tom’s actions, no doubt, prevented something tragic from happening.
As a Brit living and working in the USA, her views on gun ownership and the second amendment have evolved over the years, allowing her to fully understand both sides of the gun control debate and she regularly speaks on the matter to help others understand why she feels the second amendment must be protected and why she chooses to be an advocate for the shooting sports.
