Don’t mess with Grandma

When Freddy Alexander Velasquez, 18, shot his way through a sliding glass door into a home while fleeing Utah police early Saturday morning, cops say, he didn’t reckon on Doris Wasden.

Velasquez took Wasden, 99, hostage as police surrounded the West Valley City home in a Salt Lake City suburb after her granddaughter, CJ Montoya, escaped with her fiance, Jim Gabbard, police told The Deseret News. Wasden later told Gabbard that she was frightened when the gunman dragged her out of bed, but gave as good as she got during the hours-long standoff.

    From the link: “Velasquez fled, at one point even pointing a gun at his own head to keep police at bay.”

    Fiancee? He ran and left my 99 year old grandma inside with a guy holding a gun? I’d drop kick that asshole to the curb ASAP.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
