A doctor was leaving home to compete in a shooting competition held at Magnolia Pistol Range in Byram at approximately 7:45 AM today. He made several trips from the house to his truck carrying what he needed for the competition. Unknown to him, two black males were cruising Ridgewood Road looking for someone to rob. They happened upon him walking to his truck near the intestection Ridgewood and Eastover roads. They took him captive at gunpoint and forced him drive to an ATM and withdraw a large amount of money
They stopped at Eastover and Pinewood. They told him to get out of the vehicle. The good Doc managed to grab a pistol as he exited the truck and began firing. He shot and killed an Edwin Robinson of Cooper Road. One person at the scene said “he shot the shit out of him”.
There is actually very little about this event. Only three other sources found and two of them WLOX and FoxNews give information that the potential victim was a doctor and nothing about being a competition shooter. However, there is a Magnolia Pistol Range and it was holding the Mississippi Classic USPSA State/Section Championship this past weekend so there is a chance that the above-posted story reflects reality. But, you know that experts have warned that competition shooting will get you killed in Real Life… /snerk.
Shooter ready? Stand by! …beep!
