A neighbor with a gun intervened and shot one of two people arguing in the west-central valley Monday night. A man and a woman were arguing on the sidewalk outside a home near West Washington Avenue and North Jones Boulevard before the man began fighting her, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. CJ Jenkins said. The neighbor heard the fight, went outside, saw the man pick up a brick and raise it as if to hit the woman, he said. The neighbor then took out his handgun and shot the man once. “The citizen’s actions prevented the female from being struck,” Jenkins said. Metro call logs indicate the shooting call came out to an address on the 5900 block of Fawn Avenue about 11 p.m. The injured man was taken to University Medical Center. Jenkins said he was expected to survive his injuries. It wasn’t immediately clear whether the neighbor would be arrested.
