Talk About Dumb Luck

Here’s an unusual story about something that happened a couple of weeks ago. (I know -I should have told y’all about it back then but I DO have a life people! Geez.)

On March 29, 2005 a man walked onto the South High campus and began waving a gun around. It turned out to be a pellet gun, but according to the paper “It was made to look like a real revolver.” The incident occurred after school but there were still a lot of students there for other activities. So, this wacko starts running around screaming a bunch of nonsense. Luckily Travis Bivens, who has been working campus security for 18 years, was there. Travis kept his cool, and followed the wandering man around. The nut job eventually left the campus and took off into the neighborhood near by. That’s about the time the cops arrived. When he appeared to point his gun toward them, seven shots were fired. Now this is the unusual part… they didn’t kill him. They didn’t even hit him. Seven shots and not one of them touched the guy.

Must have been that dude’s lucky day.
