When a Milwaukee, Wisconsin nurse shot a teenage carjacker, she unknowingly put a stop to a group of teens responsible for a number of recent crimes.
Reports say that last month, Victoria Davison was in her car when two teenagers, 15 and 17, attempted to steal it. When one of them told the other to “go get the cannon,” meaning his gun, Davison quickly sprung into action. The brave nurse, who has a concealed carry permit, reached into her handbag, pulled out her own gun, and shot the 15-year-old.
“I shot the one that was in front of me,” Davison said to WISN. “The one in the back of me, he said a curse word, and then he looked at his friend, and then he ran off while his friend was on the ground. I mean he’s 15, but he’s making adult decisions.”
The 15-year-old is in the hospital in serious condition, and a few days later, police were able to arrest 17-year-old John Marshall Davis and 10 other suspects after they stole another vehicle and led police on a high-speed chase. Just the day before the incident involving Davison, the now-injured 15-year-old reportedly shot a man in the face while trying to steal his car.
“Maybe he should be charged as a juvenile because he needs to learn a lesson, but several?” said Davison. “Even after he shot somebody in the face. Then you are still committing robberies, and that was when he tried to rob me.”
Police say they may never have connected the dots and arrested the 11 people involved in the crime ring if Davison hadn’t shot the 15-year-old.
