Police: Man pulls weapon on motorist, strangers rush to aid
SHAWNEE, KS (KCTV) -
A man is facing charges after he allegedly threatened to kill a motorist and pulled a gun on a good Samaritan.
The man's rage may have been racial in nature.
Abdoulie Fatajo, 37, said he left work at 62nd and Long streets when the suspect came out of nowhere. Fatajo said the suspect was tailgating him, honking, yelling racial slurs and threatening to kill him.
"He came up and opened my door. And he said, 'Come out, I'll you (n-word),'" Fatajo said. "I saw my son right there and he was saying he was going to shoot me. My son is there. And if this guy is going to kill me, let him just kill me and no one else."
He has been charged with four felonies, including aggravated assault.
