Fifth story: Smart move.


That is what I thought, but most people survive being shot with a handgun.


I guess I play a little more on offense, After shooting, I would have driven around the corner and run them over or rammed their car then continued shooting. Probably not the right thing to do, but most likely that’s what I would have done.
