Armed Good Samaritan Takes Out Man Trying To Kill Woman And Daughter

An armed Good Samaritan saved the lives of a mother and her daughter when the father was attacking them on the street.

​Albuquerque, NM – A National Guardsman was hailed as a hero on Sunday evening, after he fatally shot a man during an altercation that may have otherwise resulted in a double homicide.

The incident unfolded at approximately 5 p.m., when Albuquerque hotel owner Xiao Gong was driving her daughter to the airport, the Albuquerque Journal reported.

As Gong approached an intersection, her estranged husband, 66-year-old Qian Ming, intentionally slammed his truck into hers, KRQE reported.

Police said that Ming then jumped out of his vehicle, and opened fire on Gong and his daughter, hitting his daughter in the shoulder.

According to Albuquerque Police Department (APD) Officer Simon Drobik, an unnamed 12-year veteran of the National Guard pulled up to the scene, and witnessed Ming pistol striking his daughter in the head with the gun.

“Once he started walking up, he saw that there was a male violently pistol-whipping a female in the street,” Officer Drobik said. “He got out of his vehicle and had his firearm on him and told that male to stop.”

The 34-year-old Good Samaritan told officers that when Ming turned and pointed his pistol at him, he opened fire, killing Ming.

“To say the least, this guy prevented possibly a double homicide. That’s what we could have on our hands tonight,” Officer Drobik said, according to the Albuquerque Journal. “In my 19 years of experience, I would say that those two females would have been dead if he hadn’t stepped in and took action.”

Gong’s daughter was taken to a local hospital, and was listed in stable condition.

“He saved our lives,” Gong told police, according to Officer Drobik.

The Good Samaritan was detained by police, but released later on Sunday evening, KRQE reported.

He was not expected to be charged in relation to the shooting, but the final decision will rest with the District Attorney’s Office, Officer Drobik told the Albuquerque Journal.

Who rams a vehicle, shoots at the occupants, then starts pistol-whipping one of the occupants in the middle of the street? Sounds more like a movie scene than real life. This guy had obviously snapped and if not for an armed citizen willing to get involved there would be more dead bodied on the street.
Good men with guns stop Bad men with guns.

A good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun once again but of course you won’t hear about this through any of the main stream media because it doesn’t fit their narrative.

Good job by the Guardsman! If he gets charged it will be a travesty.

Who writes this stuff? Don't they teach writing in "journalism school?" Very poorly written. If he was an unarmed 12 year Veteran of the National Guard (who cares), where did his gun come from? How could he "start walking up" and then "get out of his vehicle?"
