I’m not sure what Navy veteran Nick Romano was thinking, but a smart man never listens to a Democrat’s advice on guns:
Police say officers responded to reports of shots fired Thursday night outside a home in the 8700-block of Danville Avenue.
“The went to the rear of the location to investigate. They encountered an individual that was armed with a shotgun. During the course of that encounter, one of our officers discharged, striking the suspect,” said Sgt. Eric Kowalczyk, police spokesman.
Shot above his heart was 24-year-old Navy veteran Nick Romano. The police bullet exited his back. His spleen was removed at the hospital.
His father rushed to the scene.
“I got a phone call, hysterical, from my ex-wife saying my son was just shot by the police,” said David Romano, father.
Two men had robbed the location just last week. Why Romano fired the shotgun into the Baltimore sky to test it—in a stunt very similar to the Vice President’s advice to “fire two blasts” into the air—is a very good question. As we noted after Biden gave his advise, we noted that firing a shotgun into the air is illegal in most areas, and many law enforcement officers tend to shoot first and talk later when they encounter a man with a gun.
