The proprietor of a Caribbean restaurant on Morningside Ave. near Lawrence had just finished preparing some jerk chicken outside in anticipation of the dinner rush. He came back into his diner when the hair on the back of his neck stood up.And this one gets better... the shooter chases the guy into the store next door and throws a shot. Said master criminal then jumps into his nearby car.
He heard a clicking sound, like the one made when someone cocks a gun.
As he turned around, he got the shock of his life - a man was standing behind him pointing a weapon straight at him. Without waiting for him to pull the trigger, the owner raced out of the building and into the convenience store next door.
But this drama was far from over. An observant witness got the licence plate of the fleeing car and cops quickly traced it to an apartment building at 90 Mornelle Ct. After a waiting game of several hours, they finally took their suspect into custody.Thank goodness most of these guys are such morons.
Reports from the scene indicate he didn't go quietly.
One for the good guys.
