A video from the store’s security system shows the victim shopping with at least three children. According to the affidavit, the video shows some of the children move out of view as a man is seen coming over, picking up a metal tee-ball bat from a rack and striking the other man in the shoulder with it.
The victim, who police said has had a concealed pistol license since March 2013, then pulled a .357 Sig Sauer pistol from a holster and pointed it at the suspect, the affidavit said.
The suspect is a transient and is being held on suspicion of second-degree assault.
Trevor Zumwalt is being held on 2nd Degree Assault charges, with a $30,000 bond.
Fortunately, not shots had to be fired, which means the Bloomberg folks would not consider this a “defensive use of a gun.”
