Pro-tip: If someone invites you to a party in a cemetery at the graveside of someone killed in (gang?) violence, take a pass. One such party outside of Philadelphia turned rather spicy as someone with a full-auto Glock sprayed another vehicle. Mr. Full Auto wasn’t counting on someone with a legal gun shooting back though.
In the end, the victim inside the car, Arian Davis, shot and killed Mr. Full Auto, Daniel Hawkins. Hawkins arrived to the party in a stolen ride, strapped with that switch-equipped Glock.
In the end, he should have practiced quality over quantity when it came to dispensing shots at another person.
NBC Philadelphia has the rundown of the incident.
Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele has decided not to bring charges against the individual that took part in a deadly shooting that happened in March at the grave of a man who was killed by gun violence ten years prior.
In a statement released on Friday, Steele said that an investigation into the shooting that occurred on March 18 at Whitemarsh Memorial Park in Ambler, found that Daniel Hawkins, 29, of Philadelphia, was shot and killed in self-defense.
“There is no doubt about who shot and killed Hawkins, so the legal issue to be analyzed is whether this was a justifiable killing,” Steele said in a statement.
Steele said that an investigation into the shooting determined that Hawkins was killed by Arian Davis, 33, also of Philadelphia, who was seriously injured in the shooting.
Steele said that police now believe the incident unfolded after Hawkins showed up alone at a birthday party at the grave of Tyrek Fairel — who was killed in a Norristown shooting in 2013 — in a stolen vehicle, armed with a handgun that had been illegally modified into a fully automatic weapon.
Nice shooting, Mr. Davis. Especially putting shots on target after getting shot himself.
He practiced the golden rule we should all live by: Never give up.
