17 Gunshots Fired In Mount Airy (Mayberry) Carjacking. I Guess It Wasn’t Barney Fife Who Only Ever Had 1 Bullet

Sheriff Andy only let Barney had one bullet because he was a nincompoop. While Mayberry is a fictional town, it actually is Mount Airy NC.

Now this:

MOUNT AIRY – A teenage suspect was badly injured in a shootout when police say he and another suspect attempted to carjack a driver in Mount Airy who was legally armed with his own weapon. 

Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small told reporters that a 60-year-old man was getting out of his car on the 6500 block of Cherokee Street just after 8 p.m. when he was approached by two young carjackers. 

One of the suspects demanded the man’s key and pointed a gun at his face, according to police. The man then pulled out his own gun and a shootout occurred that included nearly 17 gunshots being fired.

The carjackers fled, but the man told responding officers from the Philadelphia Police Department that he had shot the armed carjacker.
