Dumb ways to die #67: Pull Airsoft gun on armed security guard

So two guys in an apartment complex decide to urinate out in the parking lot instead of just going into their apartment. A security guard rolls up on them and words are exchanged. They walk off and the guard follows them back to their own apartment, at which point one of the brain surgeions runs inside and comes back out with a gun, which he points at the security guard. The security guard took cover, drew his own gun and shot the guy, who, as it turned out, was only holding a toy Airsoft gun.

Westminster man shot by security guard had airsoft gun, cousin says

Westminster Police said witnesses reported the security guard was retreating and attempted to get behind cover after realizing the Ludwig had a weapon. The individual allegedly had a handgun, raised it, and pointed it at the security guard. The security guard fired his weapon, striking this individual.

"I heard David go, well how would you like it if you had someone point a gun at you? And that's when he [the guard] started firing," Secrest said.

Police found the man wounded in the parking lot. He was transported to a local area hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Secrest said they didn't know the security guard was armed.

Because, yeah...it's all fun and games to threaten unarmed men, isn't it?

Any bets as to whether or not Colorado's state plant, legal marijuana, was involved here?

Anyone?
Bueller?
Anyone?

  4. Saw a report that the police were continuing to look for an accomplice: one Charles R. Darwin.

  5. Pretty strange episode, altogether. That guard was probably making minimum wage, I wonder why he pushed the incident over whizzing in the parking lot? He's on his own, now. The company won't pay for a lawyer to get him out of any ensuing civil or criminal issues.

    It would be a safe bet weed and possibly some booze were involved
