    Chandler man shoots, kills 2 suspected gang members<br>
    by Jim Walsh - Sept. 6, 2010 05:00 PM<br>
    The Arizona Republic<br>

    The intruder who punched out a Chandler man while stealing beer at a keg party picked the wrong victim.

    The man, who had been attempting to defend his wife during the beer theft, had a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Fearing for his life and under attack, he pulled out a gun and fatally shot two men believed by police to be gang members early Sunday morning.

    "People in Arizona carry guns," said Detective David Ramer, a Chandler police spokesman. "You better be careful about who you are picking on."

    Ramer said police have concluded the shooter, who fears reprisals and whose name is not being released, acted in self-defense and have cleared him of any potential wrongdoing in the shooting deaths.

    The names of the two men who were shot to death also have not been released by police.

    The shootings occurred early Sunday morning in the 600 block of North Sunland Drive. A group of men showed up as uninvited guests at the keg party, paid a $2 admission fee, then became angry when the organizers started to shut the bash down, Ramer said.

    "They thought they weren't getting their money's worth," he said.

    The intruders were stealing the beer when they were confronted by a woman who had been attending the party, Ramer said. After the men started yelling at the woman, her husband attempted to come to her defense and was punched to the ground.

    "This guy was punched, he was attacked," Ramer said.

    When one of the intruders threatened the man with a gun, he pulled out his own gun and shot the two assailants to death, Ramer said. Police said they have documents confirming that the men are gang members.

    Ramer said the husband showed restraint during the incident and only fired when he was threatened with a gun.

    The man involved in the shooting had passed a concealed weapons course, Ramer said. Although he had a permit, the Arizona Legislature passed a bill earlier this year to allow residents to carry concealed weapons without one.

    Chandler police have arrested seven other men and plan to recommend that they be charged not only with robbery but with murder because the slayings occurred during the commission of another crime, Ramer said.

    Sometimes there is a happy ending.
    I'm glad that the Police did not F with the victim of the assault for defending his own life.

    How many of that group were illegals ? We had an incident near here last week where an illegal dragged a State Trooper down the road with his car (how did he get a car?) while trying to escape. He didn't make it, but Sharpton and Jackson will probably come to his aid. Larry

    It's nice to wake up to good news in the morning.

    As far as I'm concerned they ought to line every gang member up against the wall and just mow em down.

    In this day and age these guys could have been from Mars and the Lame Stream Media wouldn't report it.

    I'm surprised they didn't post headlines accusing the Keg Party folks of stealing the gangs money.

    One of the reasons a lot of gangs are moving from Arizona is becuase they know there are a lot of armed citizens here, the last thing the gang bangers want is a fair fight ... No matter how fast they can run they cannot out run a bullet and there is probably one somewhere waiting for them ... Sometimes you have to wish you could Habla so you would know what they are saying after you shoot at them ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    This needs to happen more often!

    The party was in a part of town where you would expect some gangbangers to show up - which explains why the guy was wearing a gun at his own party. He better be sleeping on the floor and looking out the windows before he leaves his house!

    There's two sides to every story but one good thing is that dead people can't talk! Good shooting.....
