Good Samaritan Hospitalized After Donation 'Wasn't Enough'


SAN ANTONIO, TX –– A act of goodwill turned violent early Monday morning.

According to police, just before 2:00 a.m. a guest at Motel 6 received a knock at his door.

When he answered the door he found a stranger asking for money. When he provided some money, the stranger complained it "wasn't enough" and an argument ensued.

During the argument, the stranger brandished a firearm and shot the good samaritan.

The good samaritan then wrestled the gun away from the stranger and shot him back.

Both men sustained gunshot wounds to the upper torso and had to be transported to the hospital. They are in stable condition.

Charges are currently pending as the investigation continues.

The problem I have with this scenario is, once the victim gained control of the firearm, he just didn't pull the trigger enough times because the suspect made it to the hospital alive........
