CBS 11 Photog Packs Heat, Shoots Alleged Robber

Jay Johnson. Remember the name, because he is not a man to be toyed with.

Seems Mr. Johnson, also a CBS 11 photographer, was playing poker in Mesquite when a man came in wanting to join in the game. The gentlemen at the table declined, so this man pulled a gun, shot one of the players, and demanded everyone’s money. Then Johnson shot him dead. The police have pretty much determined it’s self defense, and Johnson had a concealed handgun permit.

Uncle Barky has the deets.
