The victim fought back, snatching the gun out of the attacker’s hand and firing back at him. The attacker then regained the weapon, shot the victim several more times and fled the scene.
The victim’s brother chased after the attacker in his car, caught him and took him back to the scene of the crime. There both the victim and the attacker died from the gunshot wounds they had sustained.
