Default Re: Black: BJ Baldwin, NRA, and a shootout, black on white

Las Vegas shootout survivor IDd as motorsports company president
BJ Baldwin, president of Baldwin Motorsports in Las Vegas and son of a Las Vegas gaming executive, was with his girlfriend in a shopping complex parking lot at 9640 W. Tropicana Ave., near Fort Apache Drive, on Wednesday when two men approached their vehicle. Las Vegas police said at least one of the men approaching the vehicle was armed.
Police who did not identify Baldwin by name said the man having dinner with his girlfriend then acted in self-defense when he shot and killed one of the two approaching men, Joseph Anthwone Smith, 43. There was evidence of gunfire from two weapons at the scene, with at least 15 shots fired.

On April 22, 2020, at approximately 2 a.m. at Tropicana and Fort Apache in Las Vegas Nevada, BJ Baldwin, President of Baldwin Motorsports Las Vegas, had just finished a late night dinner with his girlfriend when 2 men approached quickly. One of them had a gun directly pointed at the girlfriend and began to fire. The girlfriend sought cover and the gunman then directed his attention to BJ and began to fire several times at BJ, who also sought cover. BJ, who possesses a valid concealed weapons permit, returned fire and the shooter went down.
BJ did not engage the other man as the man ran away. BJ and his girlfriend immediately jumped into BJs car, left the scene and called 911. Metro has informed us that BJ acted in self-defense.
