Florida law enforcement officers are looking for someone who allegedly stabbed a man multiple times before being shot at in response. The armed citizen had noticed that a black pickup truck that was being driven erratically was following him. He pulled into a bank parking lot, but the truck followed. A man exited that vehicle and, armed with a knife, confronted his would-be victim. The citizen tried to hit the perpetrator or push him away and get back into his car, but after he flailed at the troublemaker, he was stabbed several times. The injured victim crawled into his vehicle and retrieved a handgun that he used to fire at the attacker. The perp jumped into his truck and, with a woman behind the steering wheel, fled. It was unclear whether the bullet struck anyone. (wokv.com, Jacksonville, Fla., 9/14/18)

The would-be thief was rushed to a local hospital, where he was expected to survive his injuries. (Fox 5, San Diego, Calif., 11/30/2018)
