A 62-year-old Cincinnati man is in jail after pulling two guns and opening fire on four people, including an infant:
A 62-year-old man with a gun in each hand fired at four people – including a 1-year-old boy – before a civilian with a concealed carry permit returned fire and wounded the shooter, cops told FOX19.
Thomas McCary is being held without bond on four counts of felonious assault.
McCary was arguing with a woman around 8 p.m. Sunday night and, when the woman’s brother, Patrick Ewing, approached, McCary pulled out a .38-caliber handgun and fired three shots at him, Cincinnati police said.
Ewing didn’t get hit, but he did get his own gun and returned fire, wounding McCary in the leg. Ewing had a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
Ewing provided cover fire allowing the other man, his sister and the baby to retreat as McCary fired at them again. McCary is presently in Hamilton County jail awaiting charges. He will likely face four counts of assault with a deadly weapon.
This was a slam-dunk case of self-defense for Mr. Ewing, who is not expected to face charges for using his weapon to defend his life, and the lives of the three other people McCary was attempting to shoot.
