A man in Portland, Oregon, was being attacked and was stabbed by the attackers.
That's when the man's friend showed up with a gun, which he fired to "scare the attackers."
It didn't work. Instead, the attackers fought the man and took the gun away from him. As they fled, they fired back at him with the gun they'd just taken. Luckily they missed.
Now another gun is in the hands of criminals.
