This is my friend Rick. On April 1, 2013 while on a break from work in his cab, a teenager attempted to rob him. The teenager pulled a gun on Rick and shot him three times, but not before Rick had pulled out his own gun and shot back at his attacker striking him on the arm, did the teen flee. My friend is now in intensive care at Harberview but luckily in stable condition. The reports that I have seen have told of a bullet striking his spine as well as nicking his lungs. For someone who is always a great friend to me, I have to try and be one for him now. Today (April 3rd) Rick is going into surgery and he needs all of the support he can get. There has been a donation set up in his name to cover medical bills as well as living expenses after surgery.
I don’t want this to be an argument about gun safety or gun laws, this is about Rick Powell and him surviving.
