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?
