Man uses licensed concealed gun to stop attack
WEST ALLIS - It's a case where it appears concealed carry worked.
West Allis Police confirm that early this Tuesday a man used a gun to stop an attack on a woman. That man had a concealed carry permit for the weapon.
A man who knew that victim was attacking her near 102nd and Lincoln. The good samaritan happened on the attack. He jumped into action, pulling out his gun. He never fired, but he used the gun to hold the suspect until police arrived.
"It appears to have worked well where nobody was injured as a result of the use of the weapon," West Allis Police Chief Charles Padget told us.
Police arrested the suspect and the woman is recovering. The chief says it appears the good samaritan did everything right. The District Attorney's office will still review the use of the weapon. The DA will also investigate the original attack.
