An off-duty officer shot a wheelchair bound assailant at a party in New York on Sunday, August 20. The New York Post published a story about the incident.
The incident happened at a party on East 43rd St. in East Flatbush. At around 2:40 am, the wheelchaired suspect got into an argument with the off-duty police officer. The wheelchair bound suspect then shot at the police officer.
The officer returned 4 shots. One of the shots hit the suspect in the hip. A neighbor who witnessed the aftermath said, “I thought the guy from the wheelchair was dead.”
NYPD identified the wheelchaired suspect as 30-years-old Kwame Dottin. Paramedics rushed Dottin to Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center. He’s listed in stable condition. Authorities arrested Dottin at the hospital.
Per Dottin’s father, his son required a wheelchair since someone shot him in a fight over a woman. Police couldn’t confirm the father’s story. They did confirm that officers arrested Dottin for criminal possession of a disguised gun.
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.
