A man, Brian Harper, and his sixth-grade son, Julian, were shopping for shoes in a New York City shoe store when they noticed a security guard and another man arguing over a cell phone charger. The man left, only to return later and pull out a gun. The security guard pulled out his own handgun, a .9mm, and a gunfight erupted. When the shooting had ended, neither the guard nor the other man had been hit, apparently.
The father tried to shield his son. A bullet passed through the leg of his pants but didn't wound him. His son, though, was wounded by a bullet. Another customer, 34-year-old teacher Christopher Townsend, was grazed in the left forearm as well. Both were treated and released.
Both the shooters had their weapons illegally.
