Speaking of guns...

by EdH / March 26, 2005 5:33 AM PST

On 3 February 1990, David Zaback attempted to hold up H&J Leather & Firearms Ltd., a gun shop located in Renton Highlands near Seattle, Washington. About 4:40 p.m. that day, he entered the crowded shop and announced his intention to rob it by Gun telling everyone to put their hands on the counter and saying if anybody moved, he'd kill them. He then spotted a uniformed policeman having coffee with Wendall Woodall, the shop's owner. What happened next is less than clear in terms of who shot first, but there was an exchange of gunfire between David Zaback, the would-be robber; Timothy Lally, an 18-year veteran of the King County police force; and Danny Morris, one of the shop's clerks.

There must not have been many expert marksmen in the store. A shell count of 47 with only 23 hitting the target is not very good. But, and more importantly, where did or where could the other 24 have gone?

Exaggeration perhaps

If you read the Snopes review to the bottom, it says there was only 4 wounds.

And there was argument that only the policeman and clerk fired, not all the others, etc.

The wonder is that no one else was killed.

Apparently marksmanship is not considered important. Missing from the story is how many people were in the shop who fired 47 rounds? How many rounds does it take to make sure someone is dead?
