Decided to reenact a 70’s movie by engaging in a high speed chase and shootout while driving on a freeway weaving in and out of traffic.
The shooters estimate over a 100 rounds fired. Fortunately no one was hit or killed.
Both men admitted they were in a gunfight but said the other had fired the first shot. Both were arrested and interviewed by Milwaukee police detectives.
Adamany said he had just left the Taco Bell near South 14th and West Burnham streets and had pulled over to send a text message when a gold Dodge Magnum pulled up. A passenger said, “What are you looking at, white boy?” showed a chrome handgun and fired at Adamany’s car, hit the driver’s side mirror and then sped off.
Adamany told a detective he reached for his gun immediately but the safety was on. He said he called 911 and began following the Dodge as it headed for the freeway and said that someone in the Dodge fired a few more shots at him. He said the two cars were swerving around other traffic before the Dodge left the freeway briefly at McKinley Avenue, then re-entered, still heading north.
That’s when Adamany began emptying the magazine of his gun, shooting out the window with his left hand while driving and using the phone with his right hand, he told police.
“My radiator was hit, and the car was starting to overheat, so I aimed low to shoot out the tires,” Adamany said in an interview with the Journal Sentinel. He said his phone was connected to 911 the entire time and that a recording will back up his story.
But it’s okay, because one of the people responsible for liberalizing gun laws there says lots of other concealed permit holders totally stopped all the crimes from happening. Of course, to hear these two talk, they too were trying to totally stop the crimes from happening by shooting at the bad guy with a gun, who happened to be the other driver and any cars that might have gotten in their line of sight… and any houses that might have been hit by stray bullets. But those houses had it coming. They were comin’ right at me!
