An Elkins Park man was killed late Friday after he forced his way into a strangers apartment in Cheltenham Township.
Jasper Brisbon, 32, wandered up to a couple late Friday at the Lynnewood Apartments as the pair spoke outside their unit. Brisbon, they told police, appeared to be on drugs. He stared at the pair for several minutes before the couple decided to go into their apartment, police said.
But as they entered their home Brisbon jumped between them, forcing his way in.
The male of the couple ran to get a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle and insisted Brisbon leave. Brisbon refused. Instead, as the man yelled Stop! Stop Stop! Brisbon moved menacingly toward the man, police said.
The man fired a shot striking Brisbon in the torso and immediately called 911, police said.
An ambulance rushed Brisbon to Abington Memorial Hospital where doctors pronounced him dead. According to court records, Brisbon was awaiting trial on a charge of aggravated assault stemming from an incident in December.
Police said the residents of the apartment were cooperating with police, did not know Brisbon and that the AR-15 was legally purchased.
AR-15... Our liberal ( e.g., criminal) eliminator.
Love it, live it buy it, and prepare it.
I love stories with happy endings.
I have a loaded one literally within arms reach of where I sit typing this.
What kind of lunatic (ie. drugs?) walks onto the business end of an AR-15? Suicide if you ask me.
Sounds like he was strung out on drugs. That area can be rough. Another one of those once middle class neighborhoods that is now not quite as nice, and much more diverse, as they say. Not ghetto, but it has its share of problems and tensions.
Sounds like he was strung out on drugs.
Probably one of those “unsafe acts” that the drug companies tell you not to do while taking their drugs.
According to court records, Brisbon was awaiting trial on a charge of aggravated assault stemming from an incident in December.
His recent anger management seminar seems to have been successful.
I’m for replacing the spent ammo in a case like this. Don’t need to waste tax money, either, I’ll pony up personally.
But Piers Morgan said.......
This man deserves a FR medal!
