Two young thugs took a liking to a man’s Mercedes and thought they would expropriate it – and the owner’s wallet – for their own amusement.
Their plans went badly awry when they suffered a sudden and profound error in their victim selection process in that their victim was an armed ex-cop, according to a story in the New York Post.
Thug #1, Manuel Ocampo, 20, took a round to the face at close range. Ouch. That had to hurt.
Police found Ocampo’s gun still in his hand when they arrived. Paramedics tried to save the oxygen thief’s life, but failed.
Ocampo’s 18-year-old partner was caught moments later.
