A Texas thug was in for a bit more than he bargained after trying to mow down a group of people. Unfortunately for the idiot dumb enough to attempt a drive-by shooting, he didn’t see the cops who were just feet away – and what happened next was all caught on video.
The incident took place on Friday in Houston, Texas, but footage of the occurrence was just recently released. As the camera was flipped on, it’s clear that a verbal altercation is taking place with tensions quickly rising.
Within just a mere few moments, 27-year-old Adrian Gonzalez pointed a gun out the driver side door of his Cadillac and fired three shots in the direction of patrons exiting “Johnny B’s Outlaw Saloon.” Unfortunately for him, what he didn’t see was the three police officers standing just a few feet away on the other side of the car.
Just like that, the uniformed police officers opened fire on the suspect’s car, presumably striking him several times. As can be seen in the YouTube video, Gonzalez was still conscious and able to follow orders of police.
Doing as he was told, he got out of the car with his hands up and eventually complied with police – but the worst was yet to come. As it turns out, the injuries the two-bit thug sustained were fatal resulting in paramedics declaring the man dead just after they arrived on scene.
Court records reveal Gonzalez has a criminal history that includes charges of burglary, theft, and drugs, KHOU reported. Court records obtained by Breitbart Texas confirmed Gonzalez to be an American citizen, born in Texas.

Fortunately, the officers on scene at the time were there to watch a basketball game with a bunch of friends. However, this was an extremely lucky case for everyone involved as the only person who was injured or killed was the gunman himself.
However, this incident is a good reminder of why the Second Amendment is so important. If these officers weren’t around, many people could have been hurt or killed during the senseless act of violence.
There’s no telling when danger is going to spring out from around a corner and put your life at risk. With that being said, it’s up to you, and you alone, to make sure you’re prepared before this happens to you so that you can adequately respond when the need arises. Like I always say, it’s better them than you when it comes to lying on the ground and bleeding out.
