Unhappy Customer Fatally Shoots Wisconsin Car Dealership Employee
It's becoming more common to hear stories about guns being used for purposes far beyond their intended function. It's a sad world we live in.
In Middleton, Wisconsin, the community is grieving the loss of a man who lost his to senseless gunfire while working at a local car dealership.
A very dissatisfied customer, 23-year-old Jakira T. Anderson, returned to MSI Auto Sales to get her money back for a vehicle she leased. When employees tried to de-escalate the situation it took a turn for the worse.
After an hour of arguing, Kawsu Samba, an employee, attempted to remove her from the dealership property. Anderson resorted to pulling out her firearm.
She shot Samba in the chest, taking his life.
"Anderson told police in an interview that she pulled out the gun, which she bought legally and carried in her waistband without a concealed carry permit, because she felt threatened by Samba, though she could not articulate anything threatening that he said to her" [Kenosha News]
Crazy thing is, Anderson was actually on the phone with 911 when the shooting happened. She failed to tell dispatchers that she shot him.
Once cops arrived on scene, Anderson fled to a family member's house where she was arrested. She now faces first-degree murder charges.
It's a frightening thought, but humans are so unpredictable during times of intense emotion. You never know what will send someone over the edge and do the unthinkable.
Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Kawsu Samba.
